LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The investigation of a weekend overdose led to the arrest of a 19-year-old man suspected of selling drugs, Grand Island Police say.

Grand Island Police responded to three overdoses over the weekend, including a fatal one involving a 40-year-old homeless man.

A 20-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl are recovering from overdoses.

Officers received information from one of the investigations, and they obtained a search warrant for an apartment near Walnut and Charles Streets.

During the search, officers found cocaine, marijuana, narcotics pills, multiple firearms and cash.  Mohamed Ahmed tried to destroy evidence as officers searched, police say.

The contents of the pills remain under investigation, but police say they appear to be black market pills being sold as Percocet.
