Three people hospitalized with overdoses, three people arrested after variety of illegal drugs seized

Methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin and pills believed to be fentanyl worth about $152,080, police say.

This is a developing story.

Three people were hospitalized for drug overdoses last Wednesday and three people subsequently arrested on Friday on charges related to about $152,080 of seized narcotics, according to a Juneau Police Department press release issued Sunday.

The initial incident occurred when Capital City Fire/Rescue and JPD responded to a residence in the 9100 block of Glacierwood Drive on Wednesday after a 911 call reported multiple drug overdoses, according to the press release.

“First responders contacted several people in the residence and provided life-saving measures to three persons suffering from overdose symptoms,” the release states. “Witnesses at the scene reported the overdose may have been caused by the individuals using fentanyl when they might have thought they were using cocaine. The three individuals who suffered the overdose were transported to the hospital where they later recovered.”

On Friday, investigators with the Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs (SEACAD) task force served a search warrant at the residence on Glacierwood Drive to look for controlled substances, the JPD release states.

“At the residence, SEACAD located three adults inside; 35-year-old James Robert Lindsey, 30-year-old Liv Kandis Dybdahl, and the home owner, 38-year-old John Donald Perrin,” the release states. “All three individuals are residents of Juneau.”

Seized during the investigation at the residence were 1,037 grams of methamphetamine, 220.36 grams of cocaine, 3.8 grams of heroin, four pills imprinted with the label “M/30” believed to contain fentanyl, $44,036 cash, a digital scale and numerous small plastic baggies which are commonly used in the distribution of drugs, according to JPD.

Lindsey, Dybdahl, and Perrin were taken to the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Lindsey was arrested for misconduct involving controlled substances in the second degree (a class A felony) and misconduct involving a controlled substance in the third degree (a class B felony). Dybdahl was arrested on two counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the third degree. Perrin was arrested on two counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the third degree and one count of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fourth degree (a class C felony).

Perrin was subsequently charged by prosecutors on Saturday with six felony counts, including two class B felonies for manufacturing/distributing a controlled substance, a class C felony of providing a facility to distribute a controlled substance, and three class C felonies for previous convictions on charges involving controlled substances within the past 10 years, according to the Alaska Court System public database.

Lindsey was charged with three counts, including two class B felonies related to controlled substances, plus a class A felony for the manufacture or delivery of an illegal substance, according to the database. Dybdahl was charged with two class B felony counts.

A preliminary hearing for all three defendants is scheduled Dec. 19 at the Juneau Courthouse.
