— Deputies executing a search warrant on a Schoharie village home Wednesday found eight used hypodermic syringes, nearly all within reach of a five year old child.

"We were investigating some stolen prescription drugs," said Schoharie County Sheriff Tony Desmond.

That investigation led to a search warrant for a Prospect Street home in the village. Some substances are still at the lab for identification, but Desmond said the syringes, especially since they were kept within easy reach of a child, were the most glaring issue.

Ashley Oliver, 29, and Frank Taylor, 22, both of Schoharie were both charged with criminally possessing a hypodermic instrument and endangering the welfare of a child.

They were both arrested, arraigned and sent to jail until a later appearance date.

The Schoharie County Child Protective Services were notified, and assisted at the scene.
