Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman for Trafficking Heroin on April 27, 2020, at 07:11 a.m., in front of the DePoe Eye Center at 5451 Bowman Road. 

It was reported to deputies that a female was slumped over the steering wheel of a Dodge Ram pickup truck, parked on the sidewalk of Bowman Road. When deputies arrived, they found 31-year-old Hailey Erin Vitaglinao, of Pooler Ga., asleep behind the wheel of the truck.

Deputies woke Vitaglinao up to make sure she was alright. While checking on her, deputies noticed she was slurring words and was unsure of her location. Vitaglinao told deputies that she was traveling from Augusta to Savanah and did not know how she got to Macon. When deputies checked her and the vehicle for contraband, they located a large bag of Heroin, over four grams, inside the truck.

Vitaglinao was taken to the Bibb County Jail and charged with Trafficking of Heroin. She is being held without bond at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Bibb Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
