A married couple has been accused of shooting heroin in a Shell station bathroom on Christmas Eve while their two children waited in the car, said.
Georgina Burr, 27, of the 500 block of Don Marquis Drive in Walnut, IL, told police that the family had bought heroin on the west side of Chicago earlier in the evening, according to reports.
She and her husband, Andrew, 25, stopped at the Shell station on Cass Avenue around 7 p.m. to use the heroin, police said.
A witness saw the couple go into the women’s bathroom at the gas station, leaving a 10-year-old and a 4-year-old child in the parked car for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Officers said they confronted the couple and found heroin and a needle on Georgina Burr.
The Burrs were charged with endangering the health and safety of a child and felony possession of a controlled substance.
They were taken to DuPage County Jail and were released on bond. The children were picked up by a family member.
Andrew Burr is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. Georgina Burr has a Tuesday court date.
