    A southeastern Pennsylvania man was arrested after he allegedly gave heroin to his teenage sister.

    Back on Jan. 27, police were called to a high school in Edgemont Township, Delaware County. When they arrived, they found a 14-year-old girl who they say was high on heroin.

    The incident sparked an investigation which led police to the girl’s brother, Matthew Robbins. Robbins, 32, allegedly confessed to police that he had provided heroin for his sister for two months.

    Last week, police arrested Robbins and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors and recklessly endangering another person, according to court records.

    Online court records don't list an attorney for Robbins who remained in Delaware County Prison unable to post 10 percent of $20,000 bail.

    He faces a preliminary hearing next week.
