An overdose call Wednesday morning led to the seizure of 37 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $208,000, Christiansburg officials announced.

The seizure followed a call that came in at 6:47 a.m. requesting help for a man passed out and not breathing in the 2000 block of Christiansburg’s Simpson Road, according to a town news release.

Police and paramedics found “a semi-responsive male” and revived him with Narcan, the news release said, and he was then taken to an unspecified local hospital.

At the residence where the unresponsive person was found, police found a large amount of marijuana. After getting a search warrant, police seized the 37 pounds of the drug, the news release said.

Michael Travis Devore, 60, was charged with possessing more than five pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute it. He was released on a $1,000 secured bond, the news release said.

Ciara Brooke Hungate, 18, was charged with possessing a Schedule I or II drug and was being held without bond on Wednesday, the news release said.
