I'm still in shock as I write this, and still don't know all of the details but I found out yesterday that not only was my sister arrested for burglary, she was also arrested for heroin charges. I haven't seen my sister lately because I live an hour and half north, and our work schedules are always conflicting. We talk mostly through text or Facebook. I knew her boyfriend was a real winner and that he had an addiction to pills, but I never thought that heroin would come into the picture. I got a text message from my mom yesterday saying, "your sister's in jail. scumbag is too. They were robbing her best friends house and got arrested. Found heroin in the car. Baby is at home alone." See, my sister has 2 daughters, one is 7 and one will be 2. The oldest was in school while they left the baby at home alone, walking around, while they went and robbed her friends house so they could afford another hit. Saddest part of all of this is that my niece knows everything. She knows whats going on. She knows the name and address of the guy that sells them their stuff. My parents have that contact info and are considering going to the DEA with it, but I fear that if they do, my sister will be in even more danger when she gets out. What do we do? She still in jail from her initial arrest, and we don't know what the final charges are yet. We will find out on Monday. I've only been able to keep track through information I found on the jail's website. I just worry that since this guy knows my nieces, do you think that going to the DEA will put her in danger? Do you think this guy will come after my family if someone says anything? I'm just feeling lost and my heart is so heavy and sad. I wish I had known. I would have helped her.
