WENTWORTH, N.C. — Four people have been indicted in connection with a case involving the alleged prostitution of a teen.

Thomas “Tommy” Obie Woodall, 66, was indicted on 12 counts of statutory sex offense and 12 counts of patronizing a prostitute; Teresa Ann Vanover, 52, was indicted on 24 counts of child abuse by prostitution and 24 counts of promoting prostitution; Everett James Ferris Jr., 67, was indicted on six counts of indecent liberties with a child and six counts of patronizing a prostitute; and Mickey Dale Snow, 75, was indicted on six counts of statutory sex offense and six counts of patronizing a prostitute.

The indictments stem from an investigation after Eden police received a tip alleging that two teenage girls were involved in inappropriate sexual relationships with an older man and that the girls’ mother was facilitating the relationships.

Rockingham County District Attorney Craig Blitzer said on Sept. 10 that the alleged acts took place at Woodall’s Barber Shop in Eden and only involves one of the girls.

Woodall, Vanover and Ferris were arrested in September. Snow remains at large and is actively being sought by law enforcement, Blitzer said Monday.

Woodall, Vanover and Ferris are confined in the Rockingham County Jail, each under a $5 million bond.
