BANGOR, Maine — A Milbridge woman who was found passed out in the Tim Hortons drive-thru on Main Street last week with her sleeve rolled up, fresh puncture wounds on her arms and drugs and hypodermic needles in her car was arrested on four charges, police say.

Annette M. Reynolds, 42, was found asleep behind the wheel at about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 11 by Bangor police Officer Dan Sanborn, and her vehicle was blocking the coffee shop’s drive-thru lane, Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

When Sanborn approached,he saw two people “slumped over in the car,” the sergeant said. “He looked in and saw needles in the car. The driver’s sleeve was rolled up and he could see puncture wounds. He knocked on the window. They wouldn’t wake up.”

Sanborn knocked for a couple minutes, to no avail, then opened the door to try to awaken Reynolds and her passenger, a 35-year-old Milbridge man, who came around after being shaken, the sergeant said.

“She gave the officer some pills — Percocet, Ritalin, Flexeril, alprazolam,” Edwards said. “They’re all illegal and not prescribed to her.”

Percocet is a painkiller, Ritalin is a stimulant used to treat attention deficit disorder, Flexeril is a muscle relaxant and alprazolam is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders.

Reynolds was charged with two counts of Class C unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and two counts of misdemeanor unlawful possession of scheduled drugs. She was taken to Penobscot County Jail and has been released on bail, a jail official said.
