Vancouver Police make arrest in ‘counterfeit’ Oxycodone investigation

Detectives from the Major Crimes Team located a relative of one of the victims and were able to identify the individual who provided the pills to them

VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) announced Sunday evening that an arrest was made in connection with its investigation into the sale of “counterfeit’’ Oxycodone in the area.

Over the past week, the VPD responded to several medical calls involving drug overdoses.  Some of the calls resulted in the death of the person that ingested the substances. Investigators believed “counterfeit” Oxycodone pills laced with Fentanyl were being sold throughout Clark County. 

Detectives from the Major Crimes Team located a relative of one of the victims and were able to identify the individual who provided the pills to them.

On May 29, detectives observed the suspect leaving his residence in the 1900 block of NE Bridgecreek Avenue. Detectives executed a search warrant on the suspect’s residence and located evidence matching evidence found at one of the victim’s residences.

David A. Urbach, 23, was arrested for Controlled Substance Homicide and was booked into the Clark County Jail.

The investigation is still ongoing and nothing further is releasable at this time.
