Sheriff: Napa parents arrested for doing meth with teens


A Napa couple was arrested Saturday for allegedly supplying and doing methamphetamine with at least one teenager in their home on Heinke Drive, according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.

A total of four teenagers are known to hang out in the home of Danyelle Elaine Pedersen, 36, and her husband, Bryan Theodore Pedersen, 42, Sheriff’s Sgt. Eric Swift said. Deputies interviewed the teens earlier in the month after receiving reports of drug use in the home. One teen specifically said they had used meth with the couple, who are parents themselves, while two others admitted to using the controlled substance, Swift said.

Deputies serving a search warrant at the home around 9 a.m. Saturday arrested the Pedersens after finding additional evidence of drug endangered children, Swift said.

Danyelle and Bryan Pedersen were booked at the Napa County jail on suspicion of willful cruelty to a child, furnishing a controlled substance, maintaining a place for unlawfully providing a controlled substance, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and soliciting, intimidating or encouraging minors to use drugs.

Each is being held on $100,000 bail.

Deputies are considering the juveniles as crime victims in this case. Child Protective Services has been advised.
