Township police arrested two people Thursday on charges related to suspected drug overdoses.

Charged with inducing panic for a Sept. 17 incident is James Mason IV, 30, of Warren.

According to a police report, officers were called to an Annawan Lane address for a report that Mason had overdosed on heroin there.

Also arrested on a charge of inducing panic was Tara Sherbine, 23, of Youngstown.

A separate police report says police were dispatched to the Walmart on Doral Drive on Sept. 2 for an overdose in the parking lot.

Both Mason and Sherbine were revived with naloxone, according to the reports.

Hydrant flushing

HOWLAND

Trumbull County Sanitary Engineer’s Office will flush fire hydrants from Tuesday through Oct. 14 in the Mosquito Creek Public Water System and Howland Township.

Officials said flushing is necessary to improve water quality by removing excessive mineral deposits, sediment and stagnant water in the water supply.

If residents notice discoloration in their water, officials said the color will subside within one to two hours of flushing. Only run cold water until the color clears, and do not wash clothes the day of or day after flushing occurs. If discoloration remains two hours after flushing crews have left an area, call the office at 330-675-2775.
