An 8-month-old child, according to police, was also in the vehicle.

When officers arrived, they found Funke and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Randall Herbein, with their 8-month-old child in the parking lot of the convenience store, police said. 

Funke showed signs of impairment and admitted to officers that she had a hypodermic needle and heroin inside the car, police said. 

Officers found 23 hypodermic needles, 19 glassine bags commonly used to store heroin, four water bottle caps and heroin, police said.

The police report did not indicate how much heroin was found.
