Two men arrested in Williamsburg drug raid to face grand jury

Two of the four men arrested as the result of a Williamsburg, Virginia, drug raid this past November have appeared in court for preliminary hearings, and their cases will go to a grand jury next month. The defendants, both in their thirties, are facing felony charges of manufacturing and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

The preliminary hearings for the other two men, both in their 20s, were continued. One is charged with "conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine." The other faces charges of conspiracy as well as "selling, giving or distributing a controlled substance."

According to a Williamsburg Police investigator, one of the defendants who did have his preliminary hearing admitted that he had "cooked meth" just a couple of days prior to the raid. That raid involved five search warrants that were executed on two motel rooms and two vehicles. The investigator also says that the same defendant admitted to police that items used to make meth would be found in his vehicle, and they were. Police reportedly also found items used to make the narcotic inside the man's motel room. The defendant allegedly told the investigator that "he uses meth and makes meth" and gave him details about the process.

The materials found in the second defendant's room allegedly included drug paraphernalia. However, the only drugs reportedly discovered were cold medications that contained ephedrine. Reportedly the defendant initially said the medication was for him, but subsequently confessed that he bought it for the other defendant.

The four defendants face different charges, and there are varying amounts of evidence recovered from their rooms and vehicles. This is why it is essential that people who get caught up in a drug raid or arrest retain separate counsel and mount individual defenses. Drug-related offenses can impact a person for the remainder of his or her life. No one should face charges simply because of the people with whom they associate.
