Dethrow told Murfreesboro Police Officer Harry Haigh that Albea called him and asked him to remove a pill bottle in his home that contained cocaine because probation officers were following behind him and headed to his house to conduct a home compliance check. Dethrow exited the home and headed to his car as police and probation officers were pulling up.
