Drugs

Suspected drugs, cash and paraphernalia seized during an early morning house raid Sept. 5 in southern Culpeper County.

Two Culpeper men face felony drug distribution charges following an early morning raid last week in the area of Cedar Mountain Battlefield.

The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team executed search warrants on Sept. 5 at two homes in the 21000 block of Price Lane, off of Dove Hill Road, in southern Culpeper. Assisting were members of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team and Blue Ridge Drug Task Force along with a Virginia State Police air unit.

The search resulted from an investigation involving the distribution of crack cocaine over the summer, according to a news release Monday morning from the CCSO.

Seized during the search was approximately 53 grams of suspected crack, marijuana, Oxycodone, 1.5 grams of PCP, more than $2,000 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

Darnell Justin Morris, 39, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute Schedule I/II drugs. He was released on $2,500 secure bond, according to the news release.

Jeffrey S. Morris, 54, was charged with possession with intent to distribute Schedule I/II drugs and possession of a Schedule I/II drug. He was released on $3,500 secure bond. Both were also charged with marijuana possession.

In a statement, Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins thanked the agencies for their assistance, and issued a warning to would-be dealers.

“If you’re dealing drugs in Culpeper, you should know we’re committed, we’re coming for you and we don’t want anyone hurt,” he said.
