Manchester Police Seek Woman Accused of Endangering the Welfare of Children

Print More

Manchester police are actively looking for 26-year-old Halie Drouin of Manchester who has an
arrest warrant for Two Counts of Endangering the Welfare of Children.
These charges stem from an incident in late January where Manchester officers responded to
Drouin’s home for a domestic violence call for service. Drouin had left the residence before
officers arrived, but they were able to make contact with her husband, 31-year-old John Smart,
and their two children.

During their interaction with Smart, officers saw that the living conditions in the apartment were
deplorable and unfit for children. There was trash all over the floor, rotting food, open alcohol
containers within reach of the children, and cockroaches and bugs throughout the apartment. The
apartment was also found to have no electricity and had a pungent odor of cat feces and urine.
The children were transported to the hospital for evaluations due to the unhealthy living
conditions and DCYF was contacted.

John Smart was arrested on an active warrant and like Drouin, was charged with 2 counts of
Endangering the Welfare of a Child. At this time, Drouin has still not been located and is
actively evading her arrest.

MPD does not have a booking photograph of Drouin, but identify her through previous contacts
as approximately 5’5” with blue eyes and black hair. Anyone who has information about
Drouin’s whereabouts should call Manchester Police Dispatch at (603)668-8711. You can also
report a tip to the Manchester Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
