A Buffalo woman sleeping in a vehicle in a West Side parking lot late Friday was found to have heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana, police said.

Taquaitha L. Bonner, 28, was charged with fifth- and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Northwest District officers said Bonner was observed about 10:30 p.m. sleeping in the passenger seat of the vehicle in the parking lot at 2050 Niagara Street. Bonner handed officers a clear plastic bag containing two bundles of heroin with a panther insignia and a small tied-off bag containing crack cocaine, according to a report.

A plastic vial containing marijuana was recovered from the center console, police said.
