An Anthem man accused of shooting up teens with heroin as a trade for sex with the underage girls is back in jail not even two weeks after being let out.

Ernest Longhini III was released on $100,000 bail. According to court documents days’ later detectives with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office watched him go buy meth while wearing the court ordered ankle monitor with his mom along for the ride

His drug dealer gave him up to police when they confronted them. Longhini's mom told the cops he was there to fix his bicycle.

ABC15 has also uncovered a history of arrests for similar crimes once a month for the last four months.

In the report for Longhini’s first arrest it says his mother reported him after kicking in her door demanding she get him “two whores and and 8-ball.” She told police at the time she feared for her safety and he was a disruption to the community. She later dropped the charges.

His second arrest report lists his brother as the victim after confronting Longhini about having sex with underage girls. The report says Longhini threatened to kill his brother if he called police. When deputies did arrive Longhini tried to escape and several roads had to be closed off until he was arrested because his family reported he had access to a gun.

Longhini never appeared in court because he was in jail following a third arrest. He is due in court August 10 for the most recent drug arrest.
