Details:

On February 3, 2021, deputies responded to the 31500 block of Canyon Estates Drive, in the city of Lake Elsinore, regarding a subject who had overdosed on unknown narcotics. When deputies arrived, they located a male subject lying on his back, next to a red pickup truck. Cal-Fire personnel responded and successfully performed life saving measures. The subject, James Steedly, a resident of the city of Menifee, later advised he took opioids, rendering him incapacitated. A record check indicated that Steedly had an outstanding warrant for narcotics possession and was on summary probation with search terms. 

A search of his vehicle was conducted, and deputies located a loaded .25 caliber pistol, narcotics, and narcotics paraphernalia. Steedly was transported to the hospital for a medical evaluation. He was subsequently booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for possession of narcotics with a firearm.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Lequire at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station (951) 245-3300.

As a reminder, "Community Policing" involves partnerships between law enforcement and community members. Business owners and residents are encouraged to report criminal activity directly to law enforcement by calling Sheriff's Dispatch at (951) 776-1099, or by calling 911 if the matter is an emergency.
