Aleah Stahl, 36, of Los Alamos is back in custody at the Los Alamos Detention Center two days after Los Alamos police officers and Fire Department EMTs responded to her home and found she had reportedly overdosed on heroin. She will remain in custody until she goes to trial.
LAPD Sgt. Tim Lonz arrived on the scene to find Stahl not breathing and without a pulse, according to reports, and performed CPR until she began to breath. When LAFD arrived, they eventually took over CPR from Lonz who reportedly remained on the scene until Stahl was alert and able to be transported to Los Alamos Medical Center.
Stahl’s legal troubles began April 12 when she was arrested on charges of shoplifting, tampering with evidence and possession of a controlled substance and was released on pre-trial probation. June 29, she was scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Magistrate Court Judge Pat Casados but failed to submit a urine sample as per her conditions of release. Stahl allegedly told Probation Officer Linda Pena she had used heroin prior to court. She then admitted in open court that she could not give a clean sample because she would test positive for opiates and tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in cannabis. Judge Casados remanded her to custody until she could give a clean sample.
On arrival at the Detention Center, Stahl was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia after an inventory of her property. She was arraigned June 30 and pleaded not guilty to the new charges and is slated for a pre-trial hearing Thursday on those charges. Stahl was again arrested July 11 on a bench warrant after she again tested positive and was released July 19.
