Deputies: Phelps duo arrested after child ingests drugs, rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office says two people were arrested for child endangerment after a child ingested illegal drugs.

Nicole G. Heidemann, 42, and Michael R. Kushaney, 39, both of Phelps were arrested on March 7th a little before 2 p.m. The two were charged with endangering the welfare of a child.


The charges stem from an incident where a child in their care ingested illegal drugs. The child was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital and has since made a full recovery.

The two were issued appearance tickets and will answer the charges at a later date.
