Deputies: Woman injected drugs in jail restroom

LAND O' LAKES, Fla. - Authorities say a woman was caught injecting cocaine in a public restroom at the Pasco County Jail.

Pasco County Sheriff's officials say 33-year-old Stacy Renee Slabach was at the jail Tuesday to retrieve prescription drugs that had been left in her car when it was impounded after she was caught driving with a revoked license last month. The prescription drugs and the car belong to Slabach's mother.

Slabach went to the restroom and after a few minutes, an employee went to check on her.

The Tampa Tribune reports deputies found Slabach passed out. They also found a syringe contaminated with blood, a crack pipe, a small amount of cocaine and less than 20 grams of marijuana.

She was arrested and remains jailed in lieu of $5,450 bail.
