5 remain hospitalized after apparent overdose in Deltona home

3 victims conscious, 2 in critical condition, officials say

DELTONA, Fla. – Neighbors told News 6 they woke up to sirens and crime scene tape after deputies said a night of partying and drugs in Orlando turned dangerous for five people inside a Deltona home.

"It's really shocking to see so many police cars outside," said Lexian Chou, who lives across the street.

Crime scene tape surrounded the house and a shoe was left on the front lawn as deputies spent hours piecing together how three women and two men -- Ariana Arcaro, 24, Halsi Yanta, 32, Talishina Acosta, 22, Andrew Gaugh, 23 and Lucas Hansen Leroux, 21 -- ended up with a possible drug overdose.

Arcaro and Yanta live at the home on Coleman Avenue.

"Around 8 this morning I hear sirens. I just think maybe the other neighborhood. It never happened in my neighborhood before," said Chou.

Investigators said two women live at the home and brought back the three other people sometime overnight. It was an uncle checking on his niece Monday morning  who found the group and called for help.

Deputies said the night started at a club in Orlando and ended back at the house. It's still unclear if the women knew the others before last night.

"I really feel bad about that and hope they feel better," said Chou.

Family members arrived in the afternoon to pick up a dog that was left inside the home. Neighbors said the possibility of drugs on their street is concerning.


"I have a little one, so I really worry about this kind of thing, this kind of situation happening in my neighborhood," said Chou.

Officials said four people are in stable condition and a man remains in critical condition. As of right now, their names have not yet been released.
