STRATFORD, Conn. -- Following a three-month investigation, police have charged a couple known as “Big Momma,” and “Baby Lee,” with running a major heroin distribution operation in Stratford, according to the Connecticut Post.
Police told the Connecticut Police that in early March they received information that Chiquita “Big Momma” McPherson, 40, and Leroy “Baby Lee” Bember, 50, were operating a drug factor out of their Fourth Street home and began an investigation.
On May 21, police raided the home and found raw and processed heroin, cocaine and packaging materials, the Connecticut Post reported. McPherson and Bummer were charged with sale of heroin, conspiracy to sell heroin and operating a drug factory. McPherson was also charged with risk of injury to a minor because, according to police, she was using her 10-year-old to deliver heroin to dealers, added the Connecticut Post.
