Schneider was asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle and Schneider told police there was marijuana in the center console.

During a search of the vehicle police found a metal socket with burnt marijuana in it. He also found a plastic container with a brown powder substance that tested positive for fentanyl and heroin and another crystal substance that tested positive for meth.

Schneider told police he knew nothing about the other drugs in the vehicle and they must be Craig’s.

Both men were arrested. In Schneider’s pocket, police found a baggie with crystal meth in his pocket.

Both men face charges of possession of a narcotic drug and possession of meth. Schneider is also facing a charge of operating a vehicle while driver’s license suspended with a prior conviction.
