Heather Revell, 35, of Holiday in Pasco County, Florida, was under arrest on Sunday, Aug. 11 after a 1-year-old child in her custody overdosed on opioids.

According to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, Revell is facing drug and paraphernalia possession charges and a child neglect charge, Fox5NY reported.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said someone called 911 after the child became lethargic and unresponsive around 9:30 a.m., according to ABC Action News.

Paramedics arrived and administered Narcan and the child became responsive. She was taken to the hospital, where she is currently being monitored.

Revell and the girl were at Revell’s home in the 1200 block of Ermine Drive when Revell injected herself with heroin laced with the synthetic opioid fentanyl on the evening before. 

She told deputies that she assumed she cleaned up the remains of the heroin as well as her drug paraphernalia, but later said she believed she left some of the remnants behind and that the child ingested it.

The Sheriff’s Office also found used syringes and crushed Xanax in the home and fentanyl in Revell’s purse, the report said.

Revell was arrested for child neglect and possession of heroin, Xanax, and drug paraphernalia. She is being held at the Pasco County Jail in lieu of a $12,150 bond.
