LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a Shepherdsville mom after she brought suspected heroin with her when she tried to pick up her children from a local elementary school.

According to an arrest report, it happened Monday, just before 5 p.m. at Wheatley Elementary School, near the intersection of W. Oak Street and Dixie Highway.

Police say officers were sent to the school after they received a report that a woman was found slumped over the wheel of her car. 

When officers arrived, they allegedly found 28-year-old Elizabeth Wilkins with school officials. Police say Wilkins told them that she hadn't been feeling well, but was there to pick up her children.

The officer believed Wilkins was under the influence of some type of controlled substance. 

Wilkins allegedly admitted to the officer that she had used heroin earlier that day -- and that she had been driving her vehicle, which had a meth pipe in it.

Police say they searched her vehicle and found the meth pipe, a small zip-lock baggie of suspected heroin in a makeup bag that was in the front passenger seat, and a small bag of suspected methamphetamine in the right pocket of a coat in the front passenger seat.

Wilkins was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance (heroin) and possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
