      Long Island school bus driver arrested for selling heroin

      Authorities on Long Island say a grand jury has indicted a school bus driver for selling heroin.

      The Suffolk County district attorney's office says 38-year-old Anna Kovarick, of Bayshore, would drive students to private schools in the West Islip area, including St. John the Baptist High School, then park her bus and go out and sell heroin.

      In the afternoon, prosecutors say she would return to school in her bus to drive students home, then sell more heroin after her shift ended. Information on her attorney was not immediately available.

      Kovarick was arrested on April 10 and his being held without bail. The district attorney said there was no evidence she drove the bus while under the influence.

      The indictment is to be unsealed in Riverhead court on Wednesday.
