Infant in trashed hotel room where mom did drugsPosted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE - Police were called to a Scottsdale hotel after an anonymous employee called to report a couple suspected of using drugs staying at the hotel with an infant.
Officers responded to a room at the Homestead Studio Suites on Marshall Way in Scottsdale after someone called police saying there was an 18-year-old white female with an infant staying in one of the rooms with fresh bruises on her. Police were also told that an African American man about 20 years of age was also staying with the female.
The employee told police he or she believed the couple may be under the influence of drugs and was concerned for the infant.
When police got to the hotel room they talked to the female, identified as Amanda Reza and determined the infant was Reza’s baby. The male in the room, Tyrone Hall, reportedly became agitated with officers and was taken outside the room. He refused to talk to officers, continued with disruptive behavior and was taken into custody.
Officers noticed a strong smell of marijuana and found the room was a complete mess with dirty clothes, feces, soiled towels and there was no infant bedding. Officers later found a baggie of marijuana and a dog in the bathroom with dog feces and soiled clothing.
After further investigation it was determined that the couple had smoked marijuana just before police knocked on their door.
Reza was arrested for felony endangerment of a child, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. The baby was turned over to Child Protective Services. Hall faces felony endangerment of a child, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. He was also charged with disorderly conduct after kicking out one of the windows of the patrol car.
