Drug Overdose Suspect Wants Bond Reduced

DES MOINES, Iowa – The man charged in the methadone overdose of a Grimes teen wants his bond reduced.

Patrick Glade, 25, is in the Polk County Jail on a $20,000 cash only bond. He is accused of supplying the drugs that an autopsy showed Aaliya West, 17, overdosed on in 2013.

According to the Des Moines Register, Glade’s attorney says the bond as presently set is punitive in nature and serves no purpose.

A bond review hearing is set for Thursday morning.
