KINGSBURY — Eight people were arrested and a heroin overdose reversed when police raided a home on Tracy Road late Monday as part of an investigation into drug sales at the home, authorities said.

A New York City woman who possessed narcotics with intent to distribute was charged with two felonies, while seven other people who police believe either allowed drug activity at the home or were there for the purpose of purchasing or using narcotics were charged as well, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators believe Stephanie L. Reyes, 35, of New York City, was supplying heroin and crack cocaine, and staying at the Tracy Road home of Rachel L. Gilligan, 35, according to police.

“This house has been on our radar for a while,” Washington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy said.

Police raided the home near the intersection with Vaughn Road around 11:30 p.m. Monday, and when they arrived they found a 23-year-old woman who was suffering from an apparent opioid overdose, Murphy said. She was given Narcan to reverse the drug’s effects, then taken to Glens Falls Hospital, police said.

According to police, charged were:

  • Reyes, charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance for alleged possession of heroin and crack, including one charge that alleges she possessed drugs with intent to distribute. Police said she has been in the region on-and-off for months.
  • Gilligan, charged with felony criminal nuisance and misdemeanor loitering. The criminal nuisance count alleges she allowed drug activity at the home.
  • Shane W. Sharrow, 35, of Kingsbury, charged with misdemeanor loitering.
  • Nicholas J. Reynolds, 26, of Queensbury, charged with misdemeanor counts of loitering and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
  • Ryan A. Lewis, 28, charged with misdemeanor counts of loitering and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
  • Tegan M. Whiting, 28, of Glens Falls, charged with misdemeanor loitering.
  • Scott M. Fisher, 32, of Glens Falls, charged with misdemeanor loitering.
  • Taylor J. Tharp, 19, of Kingsbury, charged with misdemeanor loitering.

Investigators said additional arrests are likely.

Reyes was arraigned and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of bail, while the remaining defendants were released pending prosecution in Kingsbury Town Court.

Sheriff’s Office investigators Harold Spiezio, Terry Markham, Sgt. Robert Sullivan and Deputy Lance Barber handled the case, assisted by State Police, Hudson Falls Police, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Edward Rescue Squad.
