---- — LONDONDERRY — Police arrested a husband and wife at gunpoint Saturday night in a gas station parking lot on Route 102.
Detective Christopher Olson said Jessica Sederquest, 34, of Deerfield and Eric Sederquest, 32, of Chester were wanted by Stratham police on theft-related charges.
A Londonderry officer on patrol shortly after 9:30 p.m. recognized them.
“Once officers attempted to stop the vehicle, it pulled into the Shell parking lot and the doors opened up, prompting officers to order the occupants out at gunpoint,” Olson said.
Police then found a small amount of heroin on Eric Sederquest, Olson said.
He was charged with drug possession. He was released on $5,000 personal recognizance pending a court appearance Nov. 4 in 10th Circuit Court in Derry.
Jessica Sederquest faces no charges in Londonderry.
The two were turned over to Stratham police.
Olson said the Sederquests also are under investigation in a separate matter in Londonderry and could face theft-related charges.
