Ephrata man jailed on charges he supplied teen daughter's heroin

Girl administered 4 doses of naloxone to reverse drug's effects, police say

LANCASTER, Pa. - A Lancaster County man is jailed on charges he supplied the heroin that caused his 16-year-old daughter to overdose.

Kerry Long's daughter survived, but only after paramedics administered four doses of naloxone, a chemical meant to reverse the effects of heroin intoxication, according to police.

Long, 35, of Ephrata, reportedly acknowledged supplying the drugs after the girl told police that her father gave her the drugs that led her to overdose at a residence in the 600 block of Poplar Street in Lancaster on Saturday afternoon.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Long, who remained jailed Tuesday, unable to post $1 million bail on charges that include aggravated assault, corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of children and heroin possession.

He faces a preliminary hearing October 21.
