CHAMBERLAIN - A Chamberlain woman was arrested for drug possession and cruelty to a minor after police found fentanyl in her home.

On Jan. 25, Chamberlain police executed a search warrant at a Leone Street residence belonging to Talyn Douville, and when police arrived Douville appeared agitated, according to court documents.

While searching the home, 25-year-old Douville yelled, which upset her two young children who were present. Police allegedly found opioids, liquid fentanyl and hydrocodone. They also found syringes and fentanyl patches.

Because fentanyl is "extremely dangerous" and was easy accessible by the 5- and 7-year-old children, Douville was charged with abuse or cruelty to a minor younger than 7 years old, a Class 3 felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

She was also charged with unauthorized ingestion of a controlled substance and keeping a place for the use or sale of a controlled substance, all Class 5 felonies. Class 5 felonies are punishable upon conviction by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.
