Tedrow Tries to Revoke Probation

By Staff | May 27, 2015

Natasha Lynn Tedrow, 24, of 447B Martin Avenue, New Martinsville, appeared in Wetzel County Circuit Court on Monday, May 18 in regards to a petition to revoke her probation.

Wetzel County Probation Officer Stephanie Moore testified before the Honorable Judge David W. Hummel that on or about April 9, she received a call that Tedrow was at New Martinsville’s Plaza Inn. Tedrow was located at the inn with another individual and a two-year-old infant child. Various items were located around the room that could pose a potential risk to the child, including needles within reach, along with syringes.

Moore explained that Tedrow’s curfew is 11 p.m., instituted by probation. Tedrow was observed at the Plaza Inn around 10:30 p.m.

Furthermore, the individual accompanying Tedrow admitted to using substances, which would be another violation of Tedrow’s probation, as she is not supposed to be using or possessing controlled substances.

Probation Officer Brian Hostuttler stated that he received a message that evening from Officer Michael Owens of the New Martinsville Police Department. Hostuttler stated that Owens relayed some information to him regarding possible drug use at the Plaza Inn. Hostuttler and Moore met with NMPD at their office and then subsequently went to the Plaza Inn.

A search of the room was executed and 10 needles were located, along with Xanax and marijuana.

The other individual with Tedrow acknowledged using drugs, as well as cooking drugs. Hostuttler stated that Tedrow should not have been with the other individual, as he was using drugs. Furthermore, her child could gain access to the drugs.

Judge Hummel explained that the May 18 proceedings constituted a preliminary hearing and that there was sufficient evidence to move forward with the matter, which was made returnable for Wednesday, May 27, 10 a.m.

The probation of Tedrow was originally extended for an additional six months on March 24, 2014, after Tedrow admitted to having a positive drug test.

Tedrow was originally sentenced on May 22, 2013, to one to five years in the West Virginia Penitentiary for Women for conspiracy to deliver Subutex.
