SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – Deputies say a Sarasota woman who was caring for a 4-year-old child was found unconscious from a heroin overdose in a convenience store bathroom.

Deputies responded to the WaWa at 3703 N. Washington Blvd. in Sarasota at 7:15 p.m. on Friday.

The WaWa manager told deputies that Amanda Riley, 30, had entered the store with a small child and went directly to the bathroom.

Five minutes later, she was found unresponsive in the bathroom with the 4-year-old child.

Riley was transported to a hospital. Deputies say she later admitted to buying heroin in Sarasota on Friday night before injecting it while inside the store’s bathroom.

The 4-year-old child was not injured and was placed in the custody of relatives.

Riley was charged with felony child neglect without great bodily harm.
