Multiple Drug Charges in Child Endangerment Arrest

Londonderry Police arrested a Harrisville man at Cracker Barrel for Driving Under the Influence with a 2-month-old baby in the car.

Joshua Schneider, 27, was under the influence of narcotics when officers encountered him in a vehicle in the restaurant parking lot on Oct. 13 at 9:45 p.m.

The officers were checking the area for a suspect who fled State Police on foot during a stop on the highway when they saw Schneider’s vehicle off in the distance with the break-lights illuminated.

When they went to ask Schneider if he had seen anything or to determine if he were involved, the police officers discovered he was under the influence and saw what appeared to be marijuana in the vehicle.

The infant’s mother was feeding the baby in the backseat.

Schneider’s car was impounded and police executed a search warrant, seizing a hypodermic needle, a small bag of brownish white powder believed to be heroin and marijuana.

He was charged with Possession of Controlled Drugs, Possession of a Controlled Drug in a Motor Vehicle, Driving after License Revocation, Second Charge Possession of Controlled Drugs, Driving While Intoxicated Second Offense, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Schneider was held on cash bail and arraigned on Oct. 15.

Schneider’s probable cause hearing was scheduled for Oct. 20 at 12:45 p.m. in Derry District Court.
