Louisville, KY (The Weekly Vice) - Melissa Bahmandeji, a 33-year-old Kentucky woman, was jailed Saturday after she was allegedly found sleeping while standing up inside a Circle K convenience store.
According to police, officers were dispatched to a Circle K convenience store located on Dixie Highway Saturday night after receiving a complaint that a woman was sleeping inside the store while her children ran around unattended.
Investigators say officers arrived on the scene to find Bahmandeji sleeping while standing in front of a Polar Pop machine inside the store. Officers woke Bahmandeji, conducted a search and found Suboxon inside her purse along with a spoon that contained heroin residue.
Police believe Bahmandeji likely used one or both of the drugs in the store's restroom as her two children ran around the store unsupervised.
Once Bahmandeji was taken into custody and placed inside a patrol car, she handed over two hypodermic needles - one of which contained what officers believe to be heroin.
Bahmandeji was booked into the Jefferson County Jail and charged with public intoxication of a controlled substance, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor.
