Local Woman Arrested; Charge Another With Obstruction?

An Archbold woman was arrested on a felony warrant, and a second person may face charges of obstructing official business.

Archbold police arrested Christy J. Hoyt, 37, Archbold, on a felony warrant issued by the Wood County Common Pleas Court about 3:37 pm, Friday, Sept. 5, at an apartment in East Gardens.

The case against Hoyt dates back to October 2012, when she was indicted by a Wood County Grand Jury on charges of tampering with records and tampering with evidence.

The charges were amended to attempted tampering with evidence and attempted tampering with records in February 2014.

She entered guilty pleas to both charges, and was accepted for intervention in lieu of conviction.

But in March, a petition was filed to revoke Hoyt’s community control, and a hearing on a violation of her intervention in lieu of conviction program was set.

The Wood County court issued a warrant to arrest.

After she was arrested by Archbold police, she was taken to CCNO and held until Sept. 10, when she was released on her own recognizance.

Under a separate report, an Archbold police officer noted when they went to East Gardens to arrest Hoyt, a second unnamed individual allegedly “had knowledge of the suspect’s (Hoyt’s) warrant and hindered the apprehension of the suspect by harboring them…”

The matter has been referred to the Fulton County prosecutor office for possible charges.
