Woman arrested after selling heroin near children
REELSBORO, Pamlico County - Tara Christina Long of Reelsboro was arrested on Friday on drug and child abuse charges.
Investigators with the Pamlico County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at 817 Chair Road in Reelsboro on Friday. Over the past several weeks, Investigators conducted controlled purchases of heroin from the house on multiple occasions.
Investigators said they also witnessed several drug transactions occur on the property. During most of these transactions, children were in the yard or in the residence at the time drugs were sold. This investigation sparked from complaints from citizens in the area stating there was high volume, short duration traffic coming from the residence.

Long is now charged with possession of Heroin, possession of prescription medication with intent to sell, maintaining a dwelling for the use of controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse (child is in care of family)
Long is being held on a $100,000.00 secured bond.
