JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Officers from the Janesville Police Department Street Crimes Unit were investigating reports of controlled substance distribution around the city by 19-year-old Joseph VanGampler.  Sunday, leads were indicating VanGampler was staying at Motel 6 on Milton Avenue.

Officers went to the area of the motel and made contact with VanGampler at the BP Gas Station.  Probable cause was established linking the teen with delivery of heroin, resulting in a non-fatal overdose of an 18-year-old Janesville girl. 

VanGampler was taken into custody, a search warrant was signed and executed for the motel room he was staying in with three others.  During the search, officers found items from a recent burglary to a home.  Also located was six grams of heroin portioned off into 22 little bags.  The seized heroin has an approximate street value of $500.  Officers also seized a small quantity of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, three amphetamine pills, several rounds of ammunition, a holster, and magazines for a handgun. 

VanGampler's laundry list of charges include: 2nd degree reckless endangering safety, manufacture/delivery of heroin, possession with intent to deliver heroin, party to a crime/possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of schedule II narcotic, maintain a drug trafficking place, receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana, and a probation violation. 

Also arrested in the incident was Kayleigh Gaulin-Klarich (23).  She is charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, maintain a drug trafficking place and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cameron Hume (23) was arrested for receiving stolen property.
 
The investigation continues and additional charges may be coming.
