Couple charged with heroin possession while babysitting

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — An investigation into drug dealing in the City of Jamestown led police to arrest two for endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say they used a search warrant Wednesday to enter an apartment on East Second Street. Inside they found two adults who claimed to be babysitting four small children inside.

Teela Nicholas, 28, and Ramael Fields, 24, faced arrest after police searching the apartment found heroin in the bedroom of the apartment.

Police took custody of the children and returned them to their family members. Both Nicholas and Fields face charges of endangering the welfare of a child and third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Each person charged will return to court at a later date.
