Police: Two Had Heroin in Vehicle With Infant
Danielle and Adam Walker of Salem face drug, child endangerment charges.
Two local people were arrested Sunday afternoon after a vehicle stop revealed they had heroin and a three-month-old infant in their vehicle.
Salem Police charged Danielle Walker, 25, and Adam Walker, 26, of Salem with endangering the welfare of a child and felony heroin possession. Adam Walker faces additional charges of possession of drugs in a motor vehicle and operating without a license.
Police said they responded to the area of 7-Eleven on Cluff Crossing Road after a dispute between a male and a female in the parking lot had been reported.
The female was reportedly arguing with the male not to drive because he was intoxicated and callers reported a small child was in the vehicle.
Officers were able to locate the vehicle traveling west on Cluff Crossing and during the investigation they were able to find a small amount of heroin in the vehicle.
Police said the male driver also did not possess a driver's license.
Both adults were taken into custody without incident and the child, a three-month-old, was taken to police headquarters and released into the custody of a family member.
Bail was set for both at $2,500 cash and they were later taken to Rockingham County jail pending arraignment. Police said the state Division of Children, Youth and Families was also notified.
