Long Beach Worker Charged With Dealing Heroin

A Long Beach woman has been accused of dealing heroin from her job at a city-run bus depot where she worked as a clerk and elsewhere in the barrier island community.

Chelsey Lindsey pleaded not guilty Wednesday at Nassau County court to charges of official misconduct and criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors said investigators found that Lindsey was dealing heroin from at least March 3 to June 5. She had five oxycodone pills and a small amount of marijuana on her at the time of her arrest, authorities said. The city has since fired her from her job.

Judge Anthony Paradiso set bail for Paradiso at $20,000 cash or bond. She faces up to nine years in prison, if convicted. She is due back in court on Oct. 30.
