A 20-year-old woman has been accused of selling heroin to undercover Carpentersville police officers twice in October, according to police and court records.
Sandy G. Kinsey, of the 6500 block of Maple Lane, Carpentersville, faces two counts each of delivery of heroin within 1,000 feet of a park and possession of 1 to 15 grams of heroin, both felonies.
The most serious charge of selling near a park carries a prison term of six to 30 years without the possibility of probation if convicted.
The possession charges are punishable by four to 15 years in prison, with probation an option.
"This was an undercover operation by our Community Response Team. They had received information that Sandy was selling," said Carpentersville Police Cmdr. Timothy Bosshart.
Kinsey sold 1.8 grams of heroin to undercover officers Oct. 15 and another 1.4 grams on Thursday. Both drug deals took place near Boulder and Limestone drives, which is near a neighborhood park, Bosshart said.
She was arrested at about 9:50 p.m. after the sale took place, but no other drugs were found on her, Bosshart said.
She does not have any previous arrests nor traffic tickets in Kane or McHenry counties, according to court records.
Kinsey's bond was set at $200,000 Friday, meaning she must post $20,000 to be released from the Kane County jail while the charges are pending. She is due in court Oct. 31.
