Springfield pharmacy tech charged with drugged driving
Multiple motorists reported Jeep all over the highway
WARNER, NH - A Springfield, Vermont pharmacy technician was arrested on suspicion of drugged driving Friday morning after she allegedly admitted to a New Hampshire state trooper that she’d “knowingly exceeded the recommended dosage of her prescription medication.”
Shelly Sechrest, 54, of Springfield was stopped shortly after 9 a.m. Friday near Exit 9 on Interstate 89 in the town of Warner, New Hampshire after state police there said they received reports from “multiple passing motorists” that her red Jeep Wrangler had been “all over the road as it drove southbound from the Exit 11 area in Grantham.”
“Sechrest, a pharmacy technician in Springfield, Vermont, informed the arresting trooper that she had knowingly exceeded the recommended dosage of her prescription medication,” New Hampshire State Police Trooper Irwin Malilay wrote in a press release on the incident.
Sechrest is due to be arraigned on the drugged driving charge on November 15th at the Hillsborough Circuit Court.
