Shortsville-Marion duo arrested on drug charges after traffic stop involving child

Deputies say a Wayne County woman and a Wayne County woman are both facing several charges after both were found possessing drugs while a child was with them.

Deputies say Kristen Moran, 22, of Shortsville and Kayla Schojoan, 24, of Marion were arrested after a traffic stop on State Route 96 in Victor on Friday.

Deputies say they noticed a child inside the vehicle without a car seat. That child, to the estimation of law enforcement during the traffic stop — was less than 8-years-old.

During the traffic stop, deputies say that Moran tried to destroy drugs that were in the vehicle.

She was subsequently charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a control substance, tampering with physical evidence and allowing a child under eight to ride in a vehicle without a child seat.

Schojoan, who was the passenger inside that vehicle was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

The charges will be answered at a later date.
