Michael Henderson, 40, and Dana Schneider, 39, were charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday with possession with intent to deliver cocaine and narcotic drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Schneider was also charged with a second possession of narcotic drug charge.
If Henderson is convicted of all charges, he faces up to 16 years one month in prison and/or fined up to $35,500. If Schneider is convicted on all charges, she faces up to 19 years seven months in prison and/or fined up to $45,000.
But the deputy saw a crack pipe near Schneider’s feet, which he took after he called for backup. They found $1,535 in cash, a digital scale, several unused glass crack pipes, crack cocaine rocks inside the car and heroin inside Schneider’s purse. While searching the car, Henderson’s cell phone went off after he received a text message saying “It was for four bags.”
Jail staff also found morphine sulfate hidden in Schneider’s vaginal area.
Henderson also received traffic citations for deviation from a designated lane and following to close to an automobile.
Racine County Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set a $750 cash bond for Schneider and a $1,000 cash bond for Henderson. The couple remains in custody at the Racine County Jail.
