LAKEWOOD, Ohio – Karen Seguin, a local dental employee, now faces drug and theft charges after she was accused of stealing Fentanyl from an oral surgeon’s office.

Karen Seguin reportedly used her business key to enter the oral sugary office of Brian K. Smith, DDS, MD, Inc. after hours and filled syringes with the Fentanyl.
