BURLINGTON, N.C. — A search warrant says a Burlington woman charged with drug trafficking and child abuse hid heroin in the pockets of her 4-year-old child.

And the warrant says investigators learned of the heroin's hidden location by listening to a phone call Wilson made from the Alamance County jail.

The Times-News of Burlington reports 23-year-old Megon Anne Wilson was charged Feb. 22 after deputies found a bag with heroin residue inside her purse during a traffic stop.
