PITTSBURGH — A woman has apparently overdosed on drugs, a man is in custody and a child found in their car has been turned over to his grandparents after all three were found in a car parked in a Pittsburgh police station lot.


Police didn’t immediately identify any of the people found in the car outside the Zone 1 station about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. Officers noticed the car because it was parked oddly, then found the people inside along with unspecified drug paraphernalia.

Police have said the man — who was in the driver’s seat — will face unspecified criminal charges. The woman could also be charged.

The child, a boy who was 5 or 6, was unharmed.

Police say all three were sleeping, but police could not awaken the woman.
