Bethlehem police say a city woman injected a teenage girl with heroin in a Wendy's bathroom Wednesday night.

According to court records, police were called to the Wendy's at 306 Broadway at around 9:30 p.m. in response to a report of people using heroin in the ladies room.

They found Tatum Denise Tapler, 19, and a teen-age girl inside one of the stalls. Police found empty bags of heroin in one of the toilets and two needles in a trash can.

They also found more bags of heroin in Tapler's coat. The packets contained the slogan "Rise to Power," court records say.

She was arraigned before on-duty District Judge Daniel Corpora in Easton and sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail.
