BOGALUSA, La. – Police say a Louisiana hospital patient and his wife were found unconscious with needles still in their arms and now face drug charges.
Bogalusa police said in a Facebook post the couple was discovered passed out by Our Lady of Angles Hospital staff. A nurse told officers she entered the room and found them with tourniquets also on their arms.
Police say a search of the man's hospital room uncovered assorted pills, including ones identified as Oxycodone and Percocet. Police also found a measuring cup, a spoon and baggies of suspected heroin and brown crystallized substance.
Both the unnamed husband and his wife, 34-year-old Jamie Pilarczyk, face various possession counts.
Pilarczyk was arrested and booked. Her husband will be arrested after release from the hospital. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
