EASTON, Pa. -

State troopers say they've tripped up a suspected heroin dealer who brought a child along for his transactions.

Michael Astaci, also known as "Magic" is facing several charges including drug possession and child endangerment.

Investigators say an undercover trooper arranged to buy bundles of heroin from Astacio three times starting last month.

On Monday, the day of third deal, troopers arrested Astacio.

Investigators say the Easton man had a young child in his car while he conducted his business.
