Couple accused of using drugs while in a car with a child

Christopher A. Olague, 27, arrested March 25, 2016, after agents found him smoking methamphetamine inside a car while his one-year-old child was inside.

LOGAN — A Smithfield couple has been arrested and now faces felony charges, accused of using drugs while inside a car with their 1-year-old child.

Christopher and Nancy Olague were arrested Friday night by agents with the Cache Rich Drug Task Force.

While being arraigned in 1st District Court Monday, state attorney Spencer Walsh said the couple allegedly were smoking methamphetamine inside the car while their child was inside.

Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said task force agents found meth and heroin inside the car, when they were called to the couple’s home in Smithfield to assist probation officers on a parole visit. Christopher reportedly tried to swallow some of the heroin and had to be treated by paramedics.

Officers later arrested 27-year-old Christopher and 34-year-old Nancy. Both are being held in the Cache County Jail.

Prosecutors have filed six charges against Christopher, including two counts of possession of drugs with the intent to distribute and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, all second-degree felonies. Also child endangerment, a third-degree felony and two other misdemeanors.

Nancy was also charged with one count of child endangerment, a third-degree felony and two other misdemeanors.

Hooley said the child was taken into custody and turned over to agents with the Department of Child and Family Services.
