Baby revived with Narcan: Parents have history of drug incidents, records show

Published: Saturday, March 17, 2018 @ 3:51 PM

Baby revived with Narcan

Parents of a 10-month-old girl revived with Narcan had several other run-ins with police in previous months involving drugs.

Medics and police responded July 15, 2017, to a report of an unresponsive 10-month-old in the 200 block of Billwood Road in Dayton. They had to administer Narcan, an overdose reversal drug, to revive her.

Police charged her parents with felony child endangering, after police say 27-year-old Carmen Lovely and 30-year-old Andrew Reboulet tested positive for fentanyl, a drug also found in the baby's system. It’s not clear how the baby came in contact with the deadly drug, but experts say even a tiny bit of powder on her skin could have been enough to put her in shock.

Dayton police records from 2017 alone show a history of drug-related incidents involving the girl’s parents.

In January 2017, police used Narcan to revive Reboulet. The next month, they revived Lovely. After they found her battered and partially clothed, officers wrote: “It appeared as she had been thrown from a vehicle after overdosing.”

In mid-May both parents were with their children at an elementary school. Police arrested Reboulet after they say he drove under the influence with his kids in the car. Officers wrote that Reboulet “almost fell with the baby in his hands. Baby with possible injuries from being dropped on head. (Parents) are screaming at the little boy, like it was his fault that the baby is injured.”

Police took Reboulet to jail, and medics took the infant to the hospital. Less than two months later, medics had to revive the infant.

When asked why the couple still had custody of the baby at the time she was exposed to fentanyl, a Montgomery County Children Services spokesperson could only say: “We do have a current open case in this matter.” Case workers were not able to say when the case was opened nor where the children are now.

Both parents pleaded guilty to child endangerment. Reboulet did not get time in prison but was sent to the alternative MonDay Program.

Lovely will be sentenced April 9.

“University of Dayton police and Dayton police determined that a large crowd blocking Lowes Street, throwing objects at police and others and not responding to police commands, presented an extremely dangerous situation on Saturday afternoon. Police orders to clear the street were not successful and police were withdrawn for safety reasons. Additional UD and Dayton police officers were called and moved to clear the street about 6:30 p.m. The street was cleared in about a half hour without incident. No one was arrested during the dispersal. A strong police presence will be in the student neighborhood Saturday night and on Sunday and if a similar crowd gathers, it will be ordered to disperse.”

UPDATE @ 7 p.m.

Police turned out in riot gear to disperse the St. Patrick’s Day revelry in the streets of the University of Dayton student neighborhood after students started throwing bottles and rocks at them, police said.

As police in crowd control gear were getting ready to walk down the street, a huge cheer went out for a Domino’s pizza delivery driver who brought a couple pies to a house nearby.

Other students started yelling at an officer who got out of the back of a SWAT vehicle. The officer said he’d rather be celebrating himself or at home watching NCAA tournament games.

With the streets clear and most students inside their homes, police were walking the streets, ordering stragglers who remained in yards and porches to go inside.

UPDATE @ 6:30 p.m.

Police cleared the streets of people in the student neighborhood, which were filled with a couple thousand students celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

Officers in crowd-control gear were walking the streets, ordering students who remain outside to go indoors and lock their doors.

Thousands of students are in the streets and front yards this afternoon, defying orders to leave or go inside.

The University of Dayton students, most wearing green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, took to the student neighborhood mostly in the Kiefaber Street area.

Dayton and University of Dayton officers in riot gear with shields in front blocked the street, using a loudspeaker to order students to return to their homes or leave the area.


There were earlier reports of students throwing bottles, rocks and firecrackers, with some hitting officers according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

Vehicles were getting damaged, and some students had on football padding.

Around 5:30 p.m., there were 26 Dayton police cruisers with numerous Dayton police in riot gear. This was in addition to campus police on scene. There also were reports that police may be readying gas masks, possibly to deploy tear gas, according to scanner traffic.

UPDATE @ 3:10 a.m. (March 17)

Jennifer Hemchak, 35, and Tamara Montalvo, 37, were arrested in connection to the abduction of a 4-year-old boy in Sandusky that prompted a statewide Amber Alert Friday night.

The women are currently in custody in Warren County Jail.

Hamchak is the non-custodial parent of the boy, who was found safe.


A vigilant motorist helped authorities find a 4-year-old boy Friday night who was abducted Friday afternoon in Sandusky and was the subject of a statewide Amber Alert.

Police there said Jennifer Hemchak forcibly removed Q’Duai Hemchak from a car and sped away with him in a white 2015 Hyundai Sonata with Florida license plates.

Shortly after a statewide Amber Alert was issued tonight that described the vehicle, plate number and provided photos of the Hemchaks to mobile phones, a 911 caller reported spotting a car that matched the description on southbound Interstate 75. Troopers pulled over that car in Monroe in Warren County.

“If it wasn’t for the fact that the caller, regular citizen with a cellphone, called in, we probably wouldn’t have been able to locate that car, if not as quick or at all, if we hadn’t had that help from that citizen,” Sgt. Tom Bloomberg of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lebanon Post said.

Jennifer Hemchak was arrested after she was found at 8:30 p.m. riding in the car. Another woman was driving the car, and she, too, was arrested.

Hemchak’s 12-year-old daughter also was in the car and was taken to the Lebanon Post to be reunited with her father, troopers said.

As for D’Quai, he was taken to Erie County Children Services and his father has been notified, according to the highway patrol.


An Amber Alert is in effect across Ohio after a 4-year-old boy was abducted Friday afternoon in Sandusky.

D’Quai Hemchak was “forcibly removed from a vehicle by Jennifer Ann Hemchak, a non-custodial parent.” The suspect then sped away in her car heading east, and the young boy is believed to be in “imminent danger.”

They are believed to be riding in a white 2015 Hyundai Sonata with Florida license plate IWU-M23 and police say she could be headed to Florida.

D’Qai is described as 3 feet tall, weighing 30 to 35 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911.
