NH Woman Indicted on Multiple Drug Possession Charges
A woman who lives in the Dover area has been indicted on multiple drug possession charges by a grand jury at Strafford County Superior Court.
Desiree Lacount, whose last known address is the county jail, faces up to 42 years in prison and as much as $150,000 in fines if she is convicted and a judge orders the maximum sentence.
The six felony charges against Lacount stem from four incidents that allegedly took place between Sept. 23 and Jan. 10.
On Sept. 23 and 25, Lacount was in the possession of fentanyl in Dover, according to court records.
On Nov. 23, Lacount allegedly had psilocin and psilocybin in her possession in Dover. Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic prodrug compound found in "magic mushrooms."
Prosecutors say that Lacount was also in possession of fentanyl and buprenorphine on Nov. 23.
Buprenorphine produces effects that are weaker than full opioids such as heroin or methadone. It is used to treat pain and addiction to narcotic pain relievers.
On Jan. 10, Lacount allegedly had carisoprodol in her possession in Dover. That controlled drug is a muscle relaxer that blocks pain sensations between the nerves and brain.
Lacount was indicted on July 15. She was scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.
