Police: Woman Selling Drugs had Kids in Car


QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Quincy police have arrested a woman they say was selling heroin out of her vehicle with her children inside.

Angela Tantillo of Fall River was held on $50,000 bail after pleading not guilty to drug trafficking and child endangerment at her arraignment on Thursday.

The Patriot Ledger reports that the children — a 10-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy — were taken into state custody and will likely be placed with relatives.

Police allege the 26-year-old Tantillo was seen in a restaurant parking lot selling heroin to two men, who were also charged. Investigators say she had 10 bags of heroin tucked in her bra and two bags in her purse. She also allegedly had several needles and more than $2,200 in cash.
