Burlington woman charged with
heroin trafficking, Child Abuse
Burlington, NC – A woman allegedly found with heroin in her vehicle and home has been charged with drug trafficking and child abuse.
Megon Anne Wilson, 23, of 911 North Park Ave., Burlington, was arrested Wednesday by the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office and charged with felony trafficking heroin, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse.
She was also served with multiple outstanding orders for arrest, according to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office.
The arrest took place Wednesday evening, when deputies from the sheriff’s office’s Special Operations Unit stopped Wilson’s vehicle on North Main Street in Graham. Randy Jones, public information officer for the sheriff’s office, said Wilson’s car was stopped for a traffic violation while officers were conducting “saturation patrol” in an area where there has been “gang-related activity.”
A child was with her at the time.
A K-9 brought out to the vehicle indicated drugs were inside, Jones said, and deputies found a plastic bag of heroin.
Deputies then obtained a search warrant to search Wilson’s residence, he said, and seized 12.8 grams of heroin, “paraphernalia” and $202.
Wilson faces the child abuse charge because the child was with her while she allegedly had drugs in her possession.
Wilson was held in the Alamance County jail under a $120,350 bond.
