Two Sarasota women were found inside a vehicle injecting themselves with drugs while two children in the backseat, police say.

Back on Sunday morning, Sarasota police say, they responded to a reported suspicious vehicle in a driveway on Midwest Parkway. When they arrived, they say they found 53-year-old Lisa Bryan in the front passenger seat and 37-year-old Krystle Mcleod in the driver’s seat. In the backseat were Mcleod’s daughters, both 3 years old.
