Lebanon Police added that while they were booking McCarthy they discovered that she'd just been arrested in Vermont last Friday, St. Patrick's Day, for possession of cocaine and that she was currently out on bail and court-ordered conditions of pre-trial release stemming from that incident.
McCarthy was ordered held for lack of $2,000 pending arraignment on the new charges.
In May of 2005 Windsor Police described McCarthy in an affidavit as a "chronic user of illicit `bath salts'" and in June of that year she was arrested in the parking lot of the Cumberland Farms convenience store in Windsor after police reported finding three glass pipes and a small jar containing residue that tested positive for bath salts in her purse.
McCarthy's criminal history includes misdemeanor cocaine possession convictions dating back to 1995 and 2002.
