Virginia women arrested for alleged drug crimes


Facing drug-related charges can be a serious and nerve-wracking experience. Two Virginia women have been arrested on drug charges after police found drugs in a house.

Virginia State Police and the Skyline Task Force conducted an investigation that led officers to the house. When officers arrived on the scene to serve a search warrant for a check fraud investigation, they found evidence of methamphetamine distribution. Police report then getting a second search warrant for narcotics. During their search, police found meth, packing material, scales and baggies. Police say they also found two minors staying in the room with the drugs. The children were related to one of the women and are currently staying with other family members.

As a result of the search, one of the women is facing a felony charge of possession of meth and a misdemeanor capias. The other woman has been charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute and two counts of child neglect. Both women are being held at a local jail.

No matter how bleak things appear, you will almost always have options available to you as your case proceeds. It is likely in your best interest to call an attorney to go over the facts of your case and help you come up with an effective defense strategy. In many cases, your defense will likely involve questioning the search warrants and search procedures of the police. If you and your attorney can prove that the police illegally searched your property, the evidence they found may be thrown out and your charges may be dropped or lessened.
