TarrMADISONVILLE, Ky. (11/14/17) — A city teen faces drug charges after police responded to a South Kentucky Avenue apartment early this morning for a report of a possible drug overdose.

Medical personnel were at the scene treating an unconscious man just after midnight, according to a Madisonville Police Department report. Officers spoke to another individual at the apartment, who indicated the man overdosed on heroin.

While investigating, Officer Hollis Crowley wrote that Eyvete C. Tarr told him she “placed a spoon with drug residue on it in the drawer in the bedroom and placed a needle in a bag under the sink,” giving the officer permission to get the items.

Crowley noted he also saw a pouch full of needles in plain view, adding one needle appeared to have an unknown amount of methamphetamine in it.

Tarr, 19, was charged with tampering with physical evidence and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth).

She was listed as being released from Hopkins County Jail on her own recognizance.
