Earl Heath : “SF Man Faces Additional Charges: 69g Cocaine Seized”

Child Hospitalized After Cocaine Found in CPS Investigation

A child in Seneca Falls has been hospitalized after being found impaired by drugs during a Child Protective Services (CPS) investigation. Two adults, identified as Earl Heath, 42, and Angelina Ely, 32, were arrested for obstruction and child endangerment.

The Seneca Falls Police Department provided an update on Tuesday, revealing that officers had recovered a bag containing over 69 grams of cocaine. This discovery led to Heath being charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of unlawfully dealing with a child. He was later released on all charges.

The obstruction charges against Heath and Ely stemmed from their interference with the investigation. Law enforcement was initially prevented from accessing a child in immediate danger at a residence, as ordered by the Seneca County Family Court.

Upon gaining entry to the home, officers not only found a child in urgent need of medical care due to drug impairment but also discovered cocaine near another child. The affected child was subsequently taken to Clifton Springs Hospital for treatment.

Both Ely and Heath have been taken into custody and are scheduled to appear in local court at a later date to face the charges against them.

This incident highlights the importance of the ongoing efforts by law enforcement and CPS to protect vulnerable children from dangerous situations. The Seneca Falls Police Department, in collaboration with Seneca County Child Protective Services, is dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of children in the community.

It is crucial for community members to report any suspicions or concerns about child endangerment or drug-related activities to the appropriate authorities. By working together, we can safeguard the welfare of our children and create a safer environment for all.
