Grandview: Officers revive man, find heroin in his home

Grandview Heights police arrested a local man June 28 on a felony drug charge after they had to perform CPR on him at his First Avenue home.

Marcus P. Styer, 24, of 1714 W. First Ave. was arrested and charged with felony possession of heroin and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, according to reports.

Officers were dispatched to the residence on a report of an unresponsive man lying on the floor.

When they arrived, they heard a male voice yelling from the basement. Officers went downstairs and found a relative performing CPR on Styer, reports said.

The officers took over the CPR and Styer reportedly regained consciousness in about 20 seconds.

A search of Styer's pocket uncovered black-tar heroin and a needle, according to police reports.
