Steven D. Verley was arraigned and then committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $32,950 secured bail, state police spokesman Master Cpl. Michael Austin said.

Verley faces charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, three counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Disregarding a Police Officers Signal, and other traffic related offenses.

At the time of the original incident troopers recovered Verley’s abandoned vehicle which was still occupied by his child, along with an assortment of drugs and drug paraphernalia, Cpl. Austin said.

Warrants were issued for Verley’s arrest. On Aug. 10, Verley turned himself at Troop 5, Cpl. Austin said.
