STANLY COUNTY, N.C. - Two months after undercover officers investigating China White heroin arrested local mother, Tammy Hollar, police arrested her again on drug charges.

Stanfield Police told Channel 9 they have been receiving complaints about Hollar and suspicious activity at the Pete Henkel Park for more than a month.

"They didn't know her name, but they were able to tell us it was the woman from the news who got in trouble for the heroin," said Officer Corie Faggart.

Eyewitness News' investigation in May revealed Hollar had her 5-year-old son with her twice when detectives said she met undercover officers to deal china white heroin.

This week, officer Faggart said the little boy witnessed a bust again when police say they found meth in the child's silver Power Wheels truck on the playground.

"We all know children put things in their mouth," said Faggart. "He could have died from it."

Besides the meth, Stanfield police said they found prescription pills on Hollar when they searched her at the jail.

Hollar's mother is now watching her two children but she doesn't believe the charges against her daughter are true and claimed her daughter does not deal drugs.

When Eyewitness News questioned Hollar after her arrest in University City, she admitted to snorting heroin

"I snorted a little bit," said Hollar. "A little chunk. A little teeny tiny crumb."

Nearly 200 people at these fields for softball and T-ball games witnessed police arrest Hollar.

Stanfield police want all Channel 9 viewers to take notice that they are taking action.

Hollar will face a judge on the drug charges from the bust at the public park June 3.

She'll be back in Cabarrus County court on the china white heroin charges in July.

Hollar's friend who was also at the park, Paula Love Smith, is also accused of having pills to sell and is facing charges too.
