Woman Violates Probation, Charged with Possession
By Joe Bachman
A Marshfield woman faces multiple drug charges after violating probation and resisting arrest.
According to police reports, on Oct. 24, police made contact with 27-year-old Ashley Martens, who had a probation warrant for her arrest. Martens refused to comply with officers when they arrived at her home, keeping her hands in her pockets, and attempting to lock herself in the bathroom while avoiding being placed into custody.
After a thorough search of the residence police found a pipe containing residue believed to be of marijuana, two plastic bags containing marijuana, and a plastic bag in a garbage can in her bedroom containing methamphetamine.
If convicted, Martens faces up to seven years imprisonment and up to $20,000 in fines for possession of methamphetamine, and her second charge of marijuana possession. Martens was previously on probation stemming from a 2014 conviction of narcotics possession, and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 7.
