A Norwalk man is behind bars for selling drugs to a person who later overdosed in an Uber, according to Norwalk Police.

Kyle Lors, 23, of 17 Avenue C, was busted following an investigation into an Oct. 8, 2017, incident involving a drug overdose inside an Uber car, said Lt. Terrence Blake.

During the incident, police found a victim inside the car at the intersection of Grist Mill and Route 7 who had overdosed on heroin. The person was revived by Norwalk Hospital EMS and transported to the hospital, Blake said.
