An inmate at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance for passing fentanyl to other inmates, causing five overdoses, according to charging documents filed Tuesday. 

Dorothy Lantz, who was serving time for a probation violation stemming from a 2015 DUI conviction, admitted to hiding fentanyl inside her body during her transport from the Anchorage Correction Complex to Hiland Mountain, according to charging documents. 

In exchange for commissary items such as coffee and food, Lantz is accused of distributing the drug to multiple inmates in late-October, four of whom overdosed, were revived with Narcan and were hospitalized. One of those inmates suffered two overdoses in one day due to the drug, authorities say.
