A Bay Shore woman who authorities say moonlighted as a heroin dealer in between working as a school bus driver in the area has been indicted by a grand jury, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said Tuesday night. 

Anna Kovarick, 38, was arrested by detectives assigned to the DA’s Heroin Task Force on April 10. 

Kovarick was a bus driver for Acme Bus and she drove students to and from private schools in the West Islip area, including St. John the Baptist High School, Spota said. 

“She would pick the students up and bring them to school and then park her bus at the depot and go out and sell heroin,” Spota said. “In the afternoon, she’d go back to the school in the bus and then return the kids home, and after her afternoon route go out again and sell more heroin.” 

Spota said there is no evidence indicating that Kovarick, who was employed by Acme Bus for more than 15 years, drove the bus while under the influence of the drug. 

Kovarick, who is being held in the county jail without bail, faces six felony charges under the grand jury indictment, which will be unsealed Wednesday, according to court records. Those charges are two counts of third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, three counts of criminal possession of a narcotic drug with intent to sale, as well as one count of fourth degree conspiracy.

Pat is a moron- to even post that response shows how stupid she is. Gee- maybe I should a rob a bank, because its a tough economic environment? Can't blame her? How about instead of selling illegal drugs, maybe go to night school and get a degree, to educate yourself. NO- that is too easy right? let's sell drugs. Go to jail and rot.

Sad part some lawyer will plea the counts down , she will get timed served and probation will be out by mothers day .if we want to put a stop to dealers make dealing heroin a min 25 year sentence . But im prob naive it probably still wont be a deterrent.
