Lebanon Woman Arrested on Drug Charges for 3rd Time in 2 Months
A Lebanon woman, who has a history of drug offenses, was revived after overdosing while being taken into custody.
State Police Troopers found Tianna Fermino, 21, hiding in a closet when they conducted a warrant check on Monday. Fermino had an outstanding warrant from New Hampshire with New England extradition for violating her probation in reference to a drug offense. When she refused to come out of the closet, troopers removed her and placed her in custody, where she continued to resist. At that point, the troopers learned that she had snorted meth and heroin while she was hiding. Before she could be taken from the house, Fermino overdosed and lost consciousness.
The troopers administered NARCAN and Fermino started breathing again and regained consciousness. She was transported by Lebanon Rescue to Southern Maine Health Care in Sanford where, after being treated and deemed fit for incarceration, was taken to the York County Jail. She's charged with being a fugitive from justice, refusing to submit to arrest or detention, and violating conditions of release.
Fermino was already out on two sets of bail conditions stemming from the following charges; unlawful possession of cocaine, unlawful possession of meth, unlawful possession of fentanyl, unlawful trafficking in Schedule W drug, violating conditions of release. She's also on probation out of New Hampshire for a drug offense.
