72 in a fifty five with a child and Hypodermic Syringes

On Saturday, May 2, at approximately 1:05 pm, Patrolman Peter Schlesier received a report of a 1999 Cadillac Eldorado driving erratically on Route 31. Ptl. Schlesier located the vehicle near Molasses Hill Road as it was traveling Route 31 South. While following the vehicle, Ptl. Schlesier observed that it was traveling seventy-two (72) miles per hour in a fifty-five (55) mile per hour zone. Ptl. Schlesier stopped the vehicle on Route 31 South near Hibbler Road and soon observed that driver Nicole Stuhldreher, age 24, of Middlesex, was nervous, was slurring her words, and appeared to under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance. He also observed a package of hypodermic syringes in the center console and that a young child was in the backseat. Hunterdon County Communications soon advised that Ms. Stuhldreher had a $200 criminal warrant for her arrest out of Raritan Borough. Ms. Stuhldreher was therefore arrested and transported to police headquarters where she was charged with Possession of a Hypodermic Syringe and Speeding. The small child was turned over to a responsible adult. Ms. Stuhldreher was later released after posting bail on the criminal warrant.
