Couple Shooting Heroin in Parking Lot Leads to Arrests

24 hour addiction treatment

Most people don't pay attention to what's going on around them and even if they do spot someone doing something dangerous or illegal, they don't always do something about it. Not long ago though, a person witnessed something going on and instead of ignoring the situation, they did something about it. In a Lowe's parking lot, 2 people were spotted shooting up by a resident who then contacted police reporting what they saw according to standard.net.

As it turns out, one of the people injecting them self was a woman that was 5 months pregnant. Both individuals in the vehicle were injecting themselves with heroin in a parking lot and were apprehended before they were able to drive away. Fortunately the resident that reported the incident didn't ignore what they saw and instead did something about it before the two were able to drive away high on heroin.

Heroin use is very widespread anymore and sadly some of the people abusing the dangerous drug are pregnant. When a woman uses heroin during her pregnancy she is risking extremely serious complications and dangerously putting her unborn child's life at risk. Not only can an unborn child experience serious heroin withdrawal symptoms after they're born, they're also at risk of being born with birth defects and possible lifelong disabilities.
