BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz.  – August 26, 2022 – A suspected drug overdose call led to the arrest of Craig Tanner Harrington, 30 of Bullhead City, for possession of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

     On August 20 at around 5:40 a.m., emergency crews were called to an unresponsive male in a motel room in the 1000 block of Highway 95. The 28-year-old male was pronounced deceased at the scene. No one else was in the room with him when officers arrived. During the initial response, one of the officers began experiencing medical concerns believed to be associated with a possible Fentanyl exposure. The officer administered Narcan (opioid reversal agent nasal spray) to himself and immediately felt better. He was transported to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center for further evaluation.

Narcotic and general detectives were called to the scene for further investigation. By viewing motel surveillance video, detectives learned who the deceased male was with prior to his death. The investigation also revealed that Craig Harrington had given the male some drugs the same night.
Detectives contacted Harrington who was hiding in a nearby motel room. He was found to be in possession of approximately 3.5 grams of methamphetamine and some drug paraphernalia, including a scale with white residue on top, syringes and numerous baggies consistent with packaging illegal drugs for sales.
Harrington was booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman on the drug charges listed above, as well as an outstanding felony warrant for failure to appear out of La Paz County Superior Court.

The investigation is ongoing. The deceased male was turned over to the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office for further investigation. The officer who sought medical assistance was released from the hospital the same day with no further issues.
