An Athens woman was arrested on a drug charge last week after she called 911 to report that her male companion had overdosed on heroin.

Hannah Diane Scarborough, 21, was charged with one count of possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance.

Deputy Gabe Dalton and Deputy Jacob Loggins arrived at a location on Arthur Road in Hull where a woman (Scarborough) was waiting to guide them to the person experiencing the overdose.

She led officers to a dilapidated wooden building located approximately 60 yards inside a forested area off of Arthur Road. Inside the building they made contact with the victim lying on his back inside a tent in the building and with the victim’s father. They noted that the victim had extremely labored breathing and other signs of an overdose. They carried him to the road where they were met by EMS personnel who administered Narcan to reverse the overdose.

Scarborough told officers she does not use illegal narcotics and that her companion had gotten the heroin from someone named “Brittany.”

While speaking to Scarborough, Dalton observed her to be extremely gaunt and have numerous open sores on her lower facial area. He also observed a slight bulge in her right leggings pocket. Scarborough was asked if she currently possessed illegal items on her person and she denied it. She was asked to empty her pockets and a plastic bag tied with a knot was in her pocket. It contained a substance determined to be heroin.

She continued to deny ownership of the substance and insisted the pants she was wearing were not hers.

She was arrested and taken to jail.

In another arrest, Stephen Wesley Barfield, 51, of Colbert, was charged with “dangerous drug defined,” drugs not in original container and pedestrian under the influence by Cpl. Joshua Smith after someone reported that a white male (Barfield) was “throwing firecrackers” at passing vehicles. The report did not indicate whether Barfield had any firecrackers on him. He was found with a brown paper sack containing an alcoholic drink in it.
