Emergency personnel had to respond to an unresponsive female found by hotel management at the Country Inn and Suites on Armory Drive. Evidently, management at the hotel in Murfreesboro became concerned when no one checked out of the room or answer phone calls.
When the manager arrived at the room, it was discovered that the door was chained locked and he had to force his way inside. He then observed an unresponsive woman on the bed and quickly called police.
When officers arrived at the room police observed not only a woman in the hotel bed, but also a male next to her. Police shouted loudly for the two to wake up at which time the woman raised her head. The male looked up, but fell back asleep.
Officers then observed a baggie with a white substance believed to be meth inside of it along with a jar of marijuana. After the two finally awoke, the male admitted to police that the baggie did indeed contain meth. Additional amounts of meth, drug paraphernalia and cash were also found in the hotel room. Although the subject identified as 37-year-old Jason Newsom claims he had $3,000 in cash because he just sold his car to a family member.
Due to the large number of drugs, cash and paraphernalia found in the hotel room and ingredients to a meth lab, the MPD Vice Unit was called to the scene prior to arrests being made.
Mr. Newsom, who is from Fayetteville, Tennessee was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a schedule two and schedule six drug and violation of probation. He was booked under a $28,000 bond.
The female was identified as 27 year old Larrissa Voytko and she was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule two drug. She was booked under a $5,000 bond.
Both the man and the woman are due in a Rutherford County Courtroom on May 9, 2017.
