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.

You are your brother’s keeper as you enforce the law, and prevent unnecessary child abuse. Drugs have been the reason for unnecessary crime, abuse, neglect of responsibility, thefts, deaths, and what no one is considering: going to hell, if not forgiven. Not everyone can be their brother’s keeper like a police officer can be. They can report, but not enforce.

Barbara Kisstoth, such a blanket statement, is, in my opinion, no different than debating whether the chicken or the egg came first. Although judging is, at best, a dangerous thing.
Let’s just look at this in a way that few people like to do.
1. I don’t recall Our Mighty GOD, or Our Lord Jesus doing any thing but sparing the “ROD” where Children were concerned, however adults have come-up short in THEIR expectations of how we should live, treat our neighbors, etc…, but I feel certain that we are destined to, as a whole more or less, get the seal of NON-APPROVAL for our preparing the Children to take over as this is passed from generation to generation.
Barbara, do you think it odd that our Children have never been any where near protected by our laws.
But, I do not like what I have heard more or less all my life, and that is “GOD Fearing” people with the ability to know the short-comings of all of the sheep in Our Loving GOD’s Flock.
But as human beings we let our perceptions get way too far out of line when we alienate one or more of our neighbors by pointing a finger and saying “You are HELL BOUND”.
Did you know that there are medical implications for every form of Child Maltreatment???? Actually there are many ways victims of bullying, abuse, trafficking and neglect are affected: a large percentage abuse alcohol, drugs, have a revolving door with the judicial system and Law Enforcement. But Ms Kisstoth, every form of maltreatment listed here causes some degree of mental problems, and how many mental problems are too many for a Child’s mind to handle?
No Ms Kisstoth, it wasn’t the white-album, it wasn’t the drugs, it was man and woman, every generation of men and women, all the way down the line. How many Children failed to reach accountability due to what some adult did to a small Child????
30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind, and with thy whole strength. This is the first commandment. 31And the second is like to it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
