The Mountain State Fugitive Task Force arrested a woman Saturday in Wheeling who was wanted on a federal release violation.

According to authorities the task force received a call from an answering service regarding the location of Teresa Woods. Woods was originally charged with purchasing dangerous drugs.

Task force officials tracked down her address to 22 Pine Hill Acres Road.

U.S. Marshal Chad Simpson reports authorities knocked at the door of the residence and did not get a response. Simpson said he observed through a window a person run to the upstairs from the basement. Authorities then kicked in the door.

Simpson said they found Woods hiding in the bedroom shower and placed her under arrest.

Woods is being held in the Northern Regional Jail.
