MATTOON (JG-TC) -- Police officers have arrested a Mattoon man on crack cocaine and hydrocodone pill charges in connection with life-threatening overdoses.

The Mattoon Police Department reported in a press release that its officers and the East Central Illinois Drug Task Force personnel arrested Paul N. Enloe, 38, of Mattoon at 11:54 a.m. Wednesday in the 3300 block of Marshall Avenue.

Enloe was charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, plus possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver 15-100 grams of crack cocaine.

The charges against Enloe are the result of a joint investigation between Mattoon police and the task force. Enloe is alleged to have been engaged in the sale of crack cocaine and illicit hydrocodone pills.

Some of the pills that Enloe is alleged to have sold appear to have resulted in life-threatening overdoses to the users, the police department reported. Those incidents occurred Tuesday evening.

A police officer used Narcan to revive one victim, and paramedics from Dunn’s Ambulance Service revived the other. Both victims were admitted to the hospital.

A search warrant was served at the Enloe residence in Mattoon. The police department reported that illicit hydrocodone and crack cocaine were seized. Enloe is confined at the Coles County jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.
