Trio Busted in Overdose Case

Ventura County – The nearly fatal overdose of a drug user has lead to the arrests of three Thousand Oaks residents suspected of supplying controlled substances to the victim.

It was on December 10, 2017 that a 911 Emergency call to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Thousand Oaks Police Station alerted deputies to what VCSD spokesman Sgt. Matthew Young described to the media as a “non-fatal overdose” requiring the hospitalization of the victim.

An investigation into the source of the heroin that nearly killed the victim led deputies to identify Thousand Oaks residents Kevin Noriega, Mantej Sunner, and Hannah Madden as the suppliers.



With those suspects so identified, on December 28, 2017 detectives found Noriega “in the city of Port Hueneme” and arrested him on a parole violation as well as charges of sales of a controlled substance.

Nearly a full month later, on January 18, 2018, detectives tracked Sunner and Madden down to a location in Los Angeles County, whereupon they were “arrested without incident” and found to be in possession of “a large amount of heroin and U.S. currency believed to be the proceeds of illegal sales of controlled substances.” Madden was also found to be in possession of a fraudulent prescription, a charge that was added to her booking on charges of sales of a controlled substance.

For his part, Sunner was booked on charges of possession for sale of a controlled substance as well as an outstanding felony warrant.
