A New Lenox woman was found passed out in her car with her 3-year-old daughter in a Walmart parking lot, authorities said.

Carly A. Dominiski, 37, of the 200 block of Circlegate Road also was found with methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia, Deputy Police Chief Louis Alessandrini said.

She was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine and endangering the life and health of her child.

About 11:20 p.m. Sunday, police went to the parking lot of the 501 E. Lincoln Highway Walmart after receiving a report of a child left unattended in a car.

An officer located the car and found Dominiski slouched over the wheel, Alessandrini said. Her daughter was in the back of the car, police said, and when officers entered the vehicle, Dominiski regained consciousness.

Firefighters treated Dominiski, police said. Her daughter was taken into protective custody, and Dominiski was arrested. The Department of Children and Family Services was contacted, and the child was turned over to her father pending further investigation.

Dominiski then was taken to the Will County jail, where she is being held on a $50,000 bond.

On Monday, a Will County judge ordered Dominiski to have no contact with her child as a condition of her bond. She also was ordered to submit to random drug testing.

In 2010, Dominiski pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. A charge of possession of a hypodermic syringe was dropped.
