Harbor Homes to offer free Narcan training

Harbor Homes will offer a free, one-hour training on Narcan administration on Tuesday, Dec. 13.

This critical safety training will take place at 5:30 p.m. at Harbor Homes’ 45 High St. facility. It is open to the public, but registration is strongly encouraged.

The training session will include information on local substance misuse resources, the importance of early access to emergency responders such as calling 911, a demonstration on CPR/rescue breathing and hands-on experience with administering Narcan.

Also known as Naloxone, Narcan is a medication that reverses the effects of overdose from opioids such as heroin and narcotic pain medications. Free Narcan kits will be made available to individuals, while supplies last, at the conclusion of the training which can be used to respond to an opioid overdose.

To register for the free training on the administration of Narcan and these life-saving measures, please visit http://tinyurl.com/grekyrz or contact Alicia Pernaw at a.pernaw@nhpartnership.org or 882-3616 (ext. 1271) for more information.

Manchester woman arrested for stealing jewelry

A Manchester woman was arrested Monday for allegedly receiving stolen property, according to police.

Stephanie Albino, 38, of 8 Morrow Dr. in Manchester, was arrested by officers with the Nashua Police Department on a Class A misdemeanor stemming from a May 4 incident where officers took a report of a theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.

The suspect was identified as Albino who was known to the victim, police say, and Albino was alleged to have taken numerous pieces of the victim’s jewelry as well. Officers later recovered items sold to a local pawn shop by Albino and issued an arrest warrant for Albino, charging her with one count of receiving stolen property.

Detectives reviewed Albino’s criminal record, which showed that she had several previous theft related convictions. Because of the previous convictions, Albino’s charge was upgraded to a Class B felony, which is punishable by up to seven years in state prison.

Albino was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail and is slated for a Jan. 18, 2017 arraignment in a Nashua courtroom.

State warns of Fish & Game scam

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is warning people of an online fishing and hunting license scam.

The department reports that at least two different websites are attempting to fool hunters and anglers into buying what they think are official licenses, when in fact they do not. The sites simply provide information on how to obtain an actual license. Fine print on the site indicates that the site has no affiliation with any government agency.

Susan Perry, the department's licensing supervisor, said "consumers may also visit us in person at headquarters in Concord to buy a license, or go to any of our licensing agents throughout the state."

A list of agents may be found at www.wildnh.com/licensing/agents.html.
