PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police said a 27-year-old woman was seen shooting up heroin while her young child was in the back seat of her car Friday afternoon.

Someone flagged down a traffic division officer at Southwest Fourth Avenue and Harrison Street just after 1 p.m. to report that the woman and a child were in a parked car nearby.

The officer walked over to the car and saw Adrianna Vandehey injecting heroin into her arm while the child was in the back seat, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

Police arrested Vandehey on charges of possession of heroin and reckless endangerment.

The child is in good health and has been placed in the custody of other family members.

Vandehey's first court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
