Police seize car in bust
Police arrested a local woman on multiple drug charges after finding her passed out in her car at the 7-Eleven store last Tuesday, March 13.
Kimberly Ann Schrider, 22, of Berkeley Springs, has been charged with possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
According to police, Sheriff’s Deputy First Class Dennis Jenkins responded to the 7-Eleven store in Berkeley Springs at 12:10 a.m. for a complaint of a female passed out in the driver’s seat.
Upon arrival, DFC Jenkins located and recognized Schrider.
Police said DFC Jenkins was able to see a large sum of money in Schrider’s hand and several syringes in plain view in the driver’s side door handle.
According to police, once Schrider woke up, she admitted that she was under the influence of the narcotics Clonazepam and Suboxone Police said Schrider failed a field sobriety test.
A search of Schriders’ vehicle yielded several new and previously-used syringes, new and used drinking straws with residue commonly used for drug use, more than three dozen pills, 18 brown pieces of cotton field testing positive for heroin, a digital scale and $478 in cash.
After her arrest, Schrider was searched by a female officer at Eastern Regional Jail. According to police, 16 narcotic pills, a dollar bill and about two grams of a substance testing positive for heroin was found in Schriders’ body parts.
Shriders’ car, a 2008 Toyota Corolla, was seized by the Sheriffs’ Office and is currently in forfeiture proceedings. This is the seventh such vehicle taken for this type activity since 2008, said Sheriff Vince Shambaugh.
A charge against Schrider for driving under the influence of drugs is also pending.
