WANTAGH, NY (AP) - Police say a woman had her four children in the car while driving a friend to a location where that person conducted an illegal drug sale.

Police say Cynthia Carter was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and criminal facilitation. All the children were under the age of 17.

Carter, of Bayshore, allegedly drove Tamisha Kilpatrick to a location where police say Kilpatrick was involved in the drug transaction on Sept. 14.

Kilpatrick, of Central Islip, was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Both women were arrested Sunday night. They are scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether they had retained attorneys.
