(ABC 6 News) -- Around 10:45 Tuesday morning, an officer with the Rochester Police Department's Criminal Interdiction Unit saw a 23-year-old woman riding in the passenger seat of a vehicle. 

The officer recognized the woman, who had warrants out for her arrest. The officer was in an unmarked car, so he requested a marked car to come and get her. In the meantime, the car the woman was in had pulled into a driveway on the 1500 block of 4 Ave SE.

When an officer got there, police arrested her and an officer actually rode in the back of the squad car with the woman because she allegedly has a history of "concealing drugs on her person," according to Rochester Police Lieutenant Mike Sadauskis. 

Once they got to the Adult Detention Center, a deputy found a one-dollar bill rolled up in the woman's mouth with a small compressed rock that tested positive for heroin and cocaine, according to Lt. Sadauskis. 

Authorities also say they found two grams of loose cocaine powder in a baggie on her. 

Lt. Sadauskis identified the woman as Bryanna Stevens-Wiste of Rochester. 

She's facing charges of 3rd-degree possession of a controlled substance in a park zone and obstructing the legal process.
