Tarpon police: Woman brought kids to drug deal

TARPON SPRINGS — A 26-year-old woman took two children with her on a drug deal, authorities said.

Brandi Ebersberger, of 9944 Gilbert St. in New Port Richey, was arrested by Tarpon Springs police on several drug charges and two counts of child abuse at 6:45 p.m. Thursday.

According to arrest reports, Ebersberger sold oxycodone to Tarpon Springs narcotics detectives on three occasions since September, most recently on Thursday evening.

During that transaction, Ebersberger brought along a 1-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl, police said. The relationship between Ebersberger and the children is not clear in arrest reports.

In addition to the child abuse charges, Ebersberger was charged with one count of sale of a controlled substance, two charges of trafficking in oxycodone and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

As of Friday evening, she was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $120,500 bail.
