DA identifies officer accused of overdosing, says chief knew of evidence room problem (with VIDEO)

Johnstown police Chief Craig Foust

“The initial investigation into a Johnstown police officer’s alleged overdose has shown that Johnstown police Chief Craig Foust knew of a potential breach in the security of the police department’s evidence room as early as July, but failed to take appropriate action, Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan revealed Friday.

Foust has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, Callihan said.

Callihan identified the officer who allegedly overdosed as Officer William Slisz, a multi-year Johnstown Police Department veteran and a member of the Cambria County Drug Task Force.”
