HOOKSETT — A Manchester woman is under arrest after police found a 2-year-old playing near a white powdery substance that they believed was a narcotic at a Hooksett motel.

Hooksett police said they were at the Firebird Motel at 9:59 p.m. on Wednesday investigating suspicious activity.

Jeanne Call, 20, of Manchester, invited detectives and officers into the room at the motel where they found the endangered toddler, police said.

Call and Gregoris Vidal Soto, 28, of Boston, were both arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child following the incident.

Vidal Soto was also charged with possession of a narcotic drug. In addition, police discovered he is not legally authorized to be in the United States, and he is currently undergoing proceedings with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

The Division of Children Youth and Families took temporary custody of the toddler.

Vidal Soto was held on $5,000 cash bail and later transported to the Merrimack County House of Corrections. His arraignment was scheduled for today.

Call was later released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and scheduled for an April 26 hearing at the 6th District Court in Hooksett.
