Spring Hill woman brought 5-year-old grandson to drug deal, deputies say

SPRING HILL — A Spring Hill woman faces child neglect and multiple drug charges after undercover Hernando deputies say they bought OxyContin from her twice in the past month, including once when she brought along her 5-year-old grandson.

Hernando County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at the home of Robin Jean Daniels, 4406 Candler Ave., this morning and took her into custody. Daniels, 44, was then booked into the Hernando County Jail.

According to the incident report, vice and narcotics deputies arranged to buy OxyContin from Daniels on July 9 and Aug. 4. During both undercover operations, deputies bought the pills in the parking lot of a church in Spring Hill.

Daniels brought along her daughter and grandson on July 9, deputies said. But before the operation on Aug. 4, Daniels told authorities that she didn't want to go too far away from the house because she left her grandson at home.

Each time, deputies said they purchased a prescription bottle containing 60 OxyContin tablets for $720.

Daniels has been charged with child neglect, trafficking oxycodone, possession of a conveyance for purpose of trafficking oxycodone, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful use of a communication device.

She remained in jail Tuesday afternoon in lieu of $136,000 bail.
