A South Windsor mother who has a young child was arrested on heroin charges after she admitted to police that she used the drug.
Police responded to a Long Hill Road home after the owner complained she found syringes and a white powder in the bedroom of tenant Jennifer Holtz, 32.
Police seized drug paraphernalia and empty heroin packaging and interviewed Holtz. Her young daughter was home at the time and "had access to the bedroom where the paraphernalia was found," police said.
Holtz turned paraphernalia and "loose prescription pills" over to police.
Police charged her with risk of injury to a minor, possession of narcotics and possession of a drug paraphernalia.
Police held her on a $15,000 surety bond and she is scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court on June 7.
