Alleged drug dealer charged with Atascadero teen’s murder

May 20, 2020

The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office charged a Paso Robles man with murder on Thursday, after a teen he sold three pills to overdosed and died.

Earlier this year, 22-year-old Timothy Clark Wolfe sold a 19-year-old from Atascadero three pills that appeared to be 30 milligram Percocet tablets. However, the pills instead contained fentanyl.

On March 9, the Atascadero teen took one pill, overdosed and died.

Prosecutors contend Wolfe knew or should have known “the pills contained fentanyl and were extremely dangerous to human life.”

“We will not tolerate the criminal distribution of heroin, fentanyl, and other hard drugs because too many young people have been dying across our country and here in our community,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “Individuals who knowingly sell these deadly pills in our community will be aggressively prosecuted and when the facts support it, they will be charged with murder.”

Atascadero police booked Wolfe into the SLO County Jail on May 20 on charges of murder, and transporting and selling narcotics, in lieu of $1 million bail.

Damn shame, fast money is only a bust. Thats two kids lost

The murder charge will be easy to beat, I thought I was selling Percocet and just one Percocet never killed anybody. I’ll plead to the drug dealing charge and do no time. Will be back in business soon, selling more Chinese fentanyl.

Anybody who sells an illegal drug should be prosecuted if that drug causes a death .Being soft sending people to rehab just brings the users and sellers together for easier shopping .I just read about a guy in north county who has been dealing and using drugs for over 35 years he’s arrested constantly year after year plus constantly arrested on theft related charges .The Paso bank robbers a few months ago have been involved in crime in north county for over 40 years selling drugs , stolen items etc etc in and out of jail their families doing the same .The cycle needs to stop , being soft on drugs is not working . The drug dealers/ users I knew growing up in north county now work at Avenal / Coalinga prisons ,Atascadero State Hospital ,CMC , the Sheriffs dept , local city ,county and state employees .A Paso PD detective used to be Paso Robles biggest dealer till he turned Rat and switched sides .The dealers / users have been jailing the same folks they sold and used drugs with and now are jailing the children of their old sellers /users .No conscience as they walk past cells of their past associates .What a sick cycle !!!

Dang….Dow is going to lock up all the doctors!


As we all know, LEGALLY PRESCRIBED drugs account for more deaths than all the illegal drugs combined.


Doctors “knowingly sell” these pills and the people who buy them die in large numbers……


UnReasoned

So, not the user or the dealer but the doctor. But if you’re going down this path why you didn’t take it to the front of the line and talk about the drug manufacturer?
