An arrest has been made in connection to the recent overdose deaths in Auburn.
Members of the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force, along with the Auburn police, executed a search warrant for the home of Sean Conner following an investigation into the illegal sales of narcotics.
A small amount of suspected heroin was seized during the search.
Conner, 32, was arrested with the following charges:
- One Count of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance
- Two Counts of Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia
It was reported late March that a 24-year-old woman died of an apparent overdose at the Days Inn Hotel in Auburn.
Police Chief Shawn Butler now says that a 35-year-old woman has also died of a suspected opioid overdose on April 2, just days before the arrest of Conner.
Auburn police said the investigation is ongoing and that additional charges may be forthcoming.
