PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (WPIX)—A Long Island woman scuffled with police Saturday when Suffolk County cops tried to seize crack pipes and hypodermic needles from her kitchen, police said.
Jessica Schiehsl, 36, was arrested Saturday with her 5-year-old and 4-month-old daughters nearby.
Police were called to the woman's East Patchogue home following reports of a burglary. After receiving reports of a man yelling and banging on the door, an officer entered the home and found Frank Costa. Costa, 40, told the officer he lived there and had to use a ladder to climb through a window because he locked himself out.
Shortly after, cops smelled burning crack cocaine, which led them to a collection of drug paraphernalia in the kitchen. That's when Schiehsl jumped on the back of an officer in an effort to prevent him from confiscating the materials.
Schiehsl has been charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument, obstructing governmental administration, and two counts of child endangerment. Costa was arrested on similar charges.
Both will be arraigned Sunday.
