2 men arrested stemming from weekend heroin overdoses

Two arrests have been made as a result of the investigation into three suspected heroin overdoses that occurred during the early morning hours of Saturday May 10, Oswego Police said.

On May 10, members of the Oswego City Police Departments Anti-Crime Team arrested Brian T. Tumolo, 21, of Manorville,  and charged him with criminal sale of a controlled substance third degree, a felony.

Polcie say that on May 9 and 10 in the city of Oswego, Tumolo knowingly and unlawfully sold heroin to two individuals, one being Gabriel A. Gonzalez. Police also said those two individuals are suspected to have ultimately overdosed on the heroin.

Both of those individuals were treated at the Oswego Hospital and released.

Oswego City Police additionally seized 40 bags of heroin that Tumolo allegedly possessed with the intent to sell.

Tumolo was arraigned in Oswego City Court and sent to the Oswego County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bail bond. He will be back in court May 27.

During the early evening hours of Monday May 12, members of the Anti-Crime Team also arrested Gabriel A. Gonzalez, 22, of Bridgeport, Conn. He was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance third degree, a felony.

Police say on May 9,  Gonzalez knowingly and unlawfully sold heroin he allegedly received from Tumolo, to an individual within the city of Oswego. That individual was located on the SUNY Oswego campus and ultimately died from what is preliminarily believed to be a heroin overdose.

Gonzalez is being held pending his arraignment in Oswego City Court.

Throughout this investigation the Oswego City Police Department worked closely with the University Police at SUNY Oswego.

As always, Oswego City Police are asking anyone with information regarding this or any other illegal drug activity to contact them at 342-2283.
