LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say two women were found unconscious inside a vehicle Tuesday afternoon.
According to arrest reports, officers were called to the parking lot of Target on Dixie Highway, near the intersection of Stonestreet Road, shortly before 3 p.m., after they received a report of two women unconscious in a vehicle. When officers arrived, they allegedly found 24-year-old Candra L. Rose and 58-year-old Phyllis A. Marcum passed out in a maroon Saturn.
Police woke both of them up, and when asked if they were okay, police say Marcum and Rose both responded that they were -- but both spoke with slurred speech.
When Rose stepped out of the vehicle, she allegedly had what appeared to be a bag of heroin stuck to her hand.
Police searched the vehicle, and found a small bag of marijuana, multiple pills of different types and $2,038 in cash, according to arrest reports. Police also allegedly found a hypodermic needle when the suspects' purses were searched.
Both suspects admitted to snorting heroin sometime before officers arrived.
Witnesses allegedly told police Marcum and Rose had been passed out in the car for over three hours.
Both were charged with possession of heroin, possession of marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a prescription drug in an improper container and possession of drug paraphernalia.
