As you know, our Lodge brings a little joy to the area's less fortunate children at Christmas with our "Cops & Kids" program.

We are currently in the process of finalizing some details and are asking for your assistance during our current fundraiser!

Donations raised will go to helping bring smiles to all the kiddos during the holiday season!

What is Cops & Kids, you ask? Well it’s the greatest event ever when Uniformed law enforcement officers unite from Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Fairfax County Police Department Fairfax County Sheriff Leesburg Police Department, Leesburg VA Virginia State Police Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries And MWAA Police donate their time to take 100+ selected "at risk" children, ranging in ages 5-10, Christmas shopping in hopes of making their Christmas special. The children are then escorted from a breakfast with Santa in a convoy of lights and sirens over to Target at Dulles28!

The children are selected by Loudoun County Public Schools. They come from all walks of life and differing circumstances, but all are faced with financial limitations in their homes.

Our mission is to promote a positive law enforcement image with these children. Children need to experience officers as caring people who are willing to provide positive support. In supporting this project, we hope that we can make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people. Improving the connections between responsible adults and young people is the core element of effective crime prevention and deterring negative, delinquent behaviors and encouraging achievement. It helps leave a lasting impression of law enforcement with kids who sometimes don’t see police in a positive way. Youth may make up 25 percent of society, but they make up 100 percent of the future!

All funds for the program are donated by our many generous local businesses and residents. All donations are tax-deductible through the Loudoun Dulles Lodge 69 Charitable Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization.

Nothing represents the spirit of Christmas more than giving!

Donations are gladly accepted. Donations can be mailed or made in person at either one of the events or email the FOP at for assistance.

Inmate Led Hampton Roads Sex and Drug Trafficking Ring from State Prison Cell

NORFOLK, Va. โ€“ A California man pleaded guilty today to organizing and running a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy and commercial sex ring from his state prison cell.

โ€œGaines directed a drug and sex trafficking organization from the confines of his state prison cell,โ€ said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. โ€œHis crime was brazen, dangerous, manipulative, and inflicted untold mental, emotional, and physical harm on some of our communityโ€™s most vulnerable individuals.โ€

According to court documents, Foster Shane Gaines, 42, was serving an eight-year sentence in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for prostituting an adult woman. Beginning in approximately 2016, Gaines launched a drug trafficking organization that distributed methamphetamine from a source of supply in California to co-conspirators in the Tidewater area. Using cellphones smuggled into prison, Gaines directed co-conspirators in California, Nevada, and elsewhere to mail parcels of methamphetamine to co-conspirators in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Petersburg, and elsewhere. Once the methamphetamine was distributed to customers that Gaines, at times, personally arranged using his contraband cellphones, the co-conspirators returned the proceeds from the sales to Gaines and his confederates by way of prepaid stored value cards or bulk cash sent through the mail.

โ€œGaines didnโ€™t learn his lesson. Even though he was already serving a prison sentence in California, he brazenly used contraband cell phones to lead a meth and sex trafficking conspiracy while incarcerated,โ€ said Michael K. Lamonea, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations Norfolk. โ€œThanks to HSI and our law enforcement partners, we were able to take down this drug and sex trafficking ring and rescue multiple minor victims.โ€

In addition to his methamphetamine trafficking, Gaines also organized and led a commercial sex ring that at times involved approximately 10 adult females and two juvenile girls. Again using his smuggled cellphones, Gaines recruited women and girls to work as prostitutes by contacting them over various social media platforms. In exchange for 40 to 50 percent of their commercial sex proceeds, Gaines created online advertisements for commercial sex, rented hotel and motel rooms, communicated with customers, organized transportation, and otherwise managed their commercial sex activities. Gaines also arranged for a professional photographer to take sexually suggestive photographs of some women for use in the commercial sex advertisements he created for them, and frequently directed his co-conspirators to provide cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and other drugs to the women and girls prostituting. As with the proceeds from the methamphetamine sales, Gaines directed that the women and girls transmit their commercial sex proceeds to him through bulk cash mailings or prepaid stored value cards.

โ€œThe U.S. Postal Inspection Service is determined to protect Postal employees and thwart illegal and dangerous use of the U.S. Mail,โ€ said Peter R. Rendina, Inspector in Charge of the Washington Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. โ€œPostal Inspectors will work with our law enforcement partners to pursue anyone, even those already incarcerated, who corrupt the U.S. Postal Service to further their criminal enterprises.โ€

Gaines pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, commonly known as โ€œice,โ€ and 500 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, and sex trafficking of a child. Each charge carries a mandatory minimum term of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison when sentenced on Jan. 31, 2020. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneyโ€™s Offices and the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.justice.gov/psc.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Michael K. Lamonea, Assistant Special Agent in Charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcementโ€™s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Norfolk, Peter R. Rendina, Inspector in Charge of the Washington Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, James A. Cervera, Chief of Virginia Beach Police, Col. K.L. Wright, Chief of Chesapeake Police, Larry D. Boone, Chief of Norfolk Police, and Colonel Gary T. Settle, Virginia State Police Superintendent, made the announcement after U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen accepted the plea. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Darryl J. Mitchell and V. Kathleen Dougherty are prosecuting the case.

A copy of this press release is located on the website of the U.S. Attorneyโ€™s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. Related court documents and information are located on the website of the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia or on PACER by searching for Case No. 2:18-cr-143-1.

Thank GOD he was caught! Prisoners have too much unsupervised time if they are able to pull this off.

High Five to the officers and investigators!! Great Work!

I hope that whoever supplied him with the cellphones has been caught and will be brought to justice as well!

Glad our law enforcement is on top of this. Keep up the good work. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’™

This guy did all of this from his prison cell. Where is the supervision???? Wow! Job well done for finally catching him.

Good job,

Great work! Congratulations on catching this!

Congratulations officers

Outstanding!

Job well done

Wow he was a busy man, glad he got caught.

This is really interesting. When is Virginia going to start treating prison inmates like they’re prison inmates, instead of guests at the Biltmore Spa & Golf Resort? The instant question is how could this have happened?

WHY, WHY, WHY wouldn't the guards or whoever was in charge, check the parcels coming in to the prisoners??? They should be charged also! Someone is apparently not doing their job!!!

Yay we caught him! Yay you allowed it to happen! That warden should resign if he doesn’t sincerely address this. VSP it’s cool that you guys are magnifying how much stuff he got away with and then telling us that he was caught. But he needed outside help. I want to hear about the investigation on the prison personnel. Where was the breakdown or weak link that allowed this to happen in a prison. Sounds like some dirty guards to me. It will happen again. All of those teenagers and adults that were part of the sex trafficking that are going to be mentally scarred and and affected for the rest of their lives, well guess what, the prison system allowed that crap to happen, corrupt personnel probably encouraged it. Sad!

Glad it was finally found out and dealt with.

Job well done !

There had to be too prison officials involved with this crap

Just think he gets more done from a prison cell than Democrats do in Washington ๐Ÿ˜‚

We appreciate officer Viars more than he will ever know! He was a true God send to us last night.

Thank you to all VSP! You guys do a great job keeping us safe! God bless you!

OUR VSP go above & beyond for Everyone!!!! Thank You & God Bless!!!

keep up good work trooper

If that's the Trooper Viars that I know (pretty sure it is), he's first class in every meaning of the phrase. He was one solid man before becoming a VSP Trooper and has continued with said character since.

Thank you to all the VSP! You all are awesome! Thanks for all you do.

So is he just standing there watching the poor guy change his tire? Also, why no high vis safety vest? Asking for a friend X 2.

Kindness goes a long way โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Virginia troopers are the BEST!

Awesome

Virginia Troopers carry their weight y’all and will help you if they can. You gotta love VSP.

Top fan !!

NOT COOL, VSP! My husband was returning home from Bethany Beach, DE for the holiday weekend. You pulled him over this afternoon just west of the WW Bridge on 495 for no freaking reason, simply because our pick up truck, allegedly, matches the description of a truck used by the person who killed the Monty County cop (tragic). You accused him of drinking, he blew BELOW THE DETECTABLE LEVEL. No surprise, because...he...doesn't...drink! My eye, you smelled alcohol. Apparently his low level pissed off your troopers and you cuffed him. Unbelievable! You refused to tell him why you pulled him over. You also yelled at my husband for having a vicious 4.5 month Basset Hound puppy in the front seat. Thankfully, he and my puppy are safe at home...after you FOLLOWED HIM ALL THE WAY HOME. I have the utmost respect for the men and women in blue, but...dayum...these troopers give good cops a bad name. Abusive.

Of all the traffic fatalities in 2017, 26% involved at least one driver that was speeding.

Getting somewhere faster isn’t worth the cost of someone’s life. #SlowDown #SpeedLimit

Going too far below the speed limit is just as dangerous as too far above. Maintain constant speed and stay aware of your surroundings while driving.

Is the speed limit enforced on Gatesgreen Dr? It’s posted at 25 mph, and people absolutely fly up and down this road constantly. There are no sidewalks, kids are walking to the bus while people fly by all day long going 20 miles over the speed limit. Someone is gonna get hit down here, it’s scary!

You should see how people were driving on 95 N&S today. Cutting in & out. At one time a car looked like it would side swipe me. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

But yet you don’t stop the speeding on 81. People doing 80 and 90 an no one gets stopped.

How many involved texting and driving?

Yeah...tell that to the cops...racing down the roads at night, no lights or siren, going 60+ down Little River & Rt 50...but sure, they have a badge so they get a pass...#DoubleStandard ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคท‍โ™‚๏ธ

Honestly, my biggest fear when driving is getting plowed into from behind while stopped at the end of a line of traffic on a limited access 4-8 lane divided highway, because some incompetent idiot 3-dozen cars in front of me had to come to a complete stop just to change lanes. Nobody is speeding, not even the "hammer."

Hard to command much respect in a little bakery truck like that and doesn't seem very comfortable

I watch an episode of "Blue Bloods" and Jamie and his partner got stuck with a "smart" car cruiser. I hate to say this but this one isn't any better. What happened?

Love it

VSP please don't consider a vehicle like that for the road. That thing is straight up ugly. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ If one of those things were to chase me on the highway, I would have to pull over from laughing too hard. ROFLMBO! ๐Ÿคฃ

To bad that can’t go around to all the schools!

Funny little car. How fast can you go in it?? Thank you all for keeping us safe. ๐Ÿ™‚

Man, that is one bad, chase car !

Is that the new SWAT vehicle?

I want that car.

You guys (and gals) do realize that if this "official vehicle" was in HOT PURSUIT of me, I'd be laughing so hard, I'd have to pull over. Just saying..

I would love this to put in parades so need

love my heroes in blue and gray; but that vehicle is one ugly piece of mechanical equipment. No offense

God Bless and RIP Special Agent Rodney Grimes. I just love this site and how they never forget there Brothers and Sisters. True Heros each and everyone of you. Me and my wife live in NY, but our Son, well, he's on your team. God Bless you Son, and all that put there lives on the line each and every day.

Super nice guy. He came to Academy and they assigned him K-9 Unit. He came down to meet us and said, “I am well qualified to supervise K-9 Unit. I owned a dog once!”

Was one of our sergeants at the training school 65th session. I always held Sgt. Grimes in high regard, such a nice man!

Never will forget. This VST gave his life to the dedication of his community’s safety. We always keep VSP in our prayers along with all officers everywhere. OCPD is always deep in our heart too.

RIP, Oh my God what is happening there. so many have been killed. praying for all of them.

Close Friend, Fellow Sergeant on the Training School Staff and neighbor in Powhatan during 1976-1978. Rodney was one of the funniest and most pleasant man to work with that I ever knew. His ever-present smile, wit and light-hearted banter always made my work day more enjoyable. His untimely passing in a car crash was a shock and personal loss that I feel to this day. Rest In Peace, Rodney Grimes. I'll never forget you.

Thank you for your service and your ultimate sacrifice for the people of Virginia

I remember Rodney from when he served in Augusta County. Sending thoughts and prayers to his family wherever they are.

Always remember, never forget!

Thanks for your service! RIP

I knew him. His dad was our neighbor. Great people

May He Be Guided By Eternal Light Lord Hear My Prayer

Never forget any fallen VSP. Thank you for your service...

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

RIP BROTHER IN BLUE ๐Ÿ’™

Good man right there I considered a mentor of sorts. A good friend to a young Culpeper cop (me) working his first serious cases. RIP Sir ๐Ÿ™

RIP Thank you for your service to all of us.

Prayers for his family and friends today. RIP sir.

RIP Sir๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Rest In Peace Special Agent Grimes ๐Ÿ™

Never forget. !! May he continue to Rest In Peace. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

A good man. Always enjoyed being around Rodney.

It takes 100% concentration when riding. You're the most invisible motorist the stopping and slow crawling are challenging enough, try impairment of alcohol or some prescription medications with warnings to not drive or operate machinery. You're in for the end day/night of your life.

I wonder what the stat is for car drivers.

Why would you ride a bike if you’re drunk? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก

It would be staggering if they were walking. Riding while intoxicated is appallingly stupid.

I saw this one message one morning on 95 southbound, between Doswell and Ashland. Traffic was backed up for 3 miles, because people would glance at the sign, and immediately try to get out of the left lane! This message was a terrible idea!

This was the bane of my daily commute to VSP. ๐Ÿ™ I miss the people but not I95. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you for posting this.

295 EVERYDAY!!!! Don’t even go the speed limit in the passing lanes. Or wait till they get right to the 95/295 split and jump all the way over to keep going on 295

You can keep taking the lazy route with cute signs and Facebook posts, or you can get out there and actually start enforcing this one for a change.

Step one to improving Interstate 81 in Virginia. It’s low hanging fruit. I travel New York to Tennessee routinely. This is so much worse in Virginia than anywhere else along the drive.

Hand out tickets!!!! Followed a car up Rt 17 tonight at about 44 mph in a 55 mph zone and they never got out of the left lane. Passed them on the right. NO one hands out tickets..... no one!

Amen!!!

Love it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Left lane is for passing only , pass and move back over to the right. Leave left lane open for emergency vehicles

Love it !!!

What happened to the signs that say: "Slower Traffic Keep Right." also, there is no Warning, Stop Ahead sign on the off ramp of I-85 South onto US 1 at exit 15 and my do they fly out onto US 1!

I live with one of these!

Virginia State Police. Do you encourage or endorse speeding or breaking the posted speed limit when traveling in the left lane of traffic? It would seem so, If one is travelling at the posted speed limit in eather the right or left lane of traffic, it would seem as though you ( The Virginia State Police) would be suggesting or labeling thoes drivers as camping in the left lane. This appears to suggest that one traveling at the posted speed limit should get out of the way and let the faster traffic go by. Are you in any way endorsing or supporting the faster traffic who are spending and in violation of Va. State law?

I’m from Virginia I worked in Virginia! Why doesn’t The Virginia State Police enforce this policy? I alway said Virginia are the worst offenders of this exact thing!

Love these signs - hilarious plus get the point across!

Its funny-when I was a VA Trooper the Govt said all lanes on the Interstate were driving lanes.

Maybe the point is, when towing a camper, or anyyhing heavy, its harder to maintain the same speed.

A couple of people have stated that if you’re doing the speed limit aren’t you helping to slow traffic. Yes but 2 things wrong with that thinking. One you ain’t the police or have theauthority to tell someone else what speed to travel and two of they can’t pass in left lane they will cut in and out of traffic, I’ve even seen them pass on shoulder making situation more dangerous than speed.

Also remind people passing in the left lane does not give them the right to ride your bumper, flash there lights and speed like a mad demon or weave in and out of traffic because they think your not driving fast enough when your doing the posted speed limit which to me is way to,fast as it is I mean they think 70 gives them the right to do 90 ughhhh I avoid I-95 because of this

I don't like using left lane, even speeding 8 miles over somebody will want to go faster.

If only people could read this.....but they have thier face buried in thier phones.....SMH

AND use your turn signals when you move over.

Hahaha perfect statement!

Beautiful picture...VSP need to go have some fun! Thanks for all you continue to do for the communities!

Thank you to all State Troopers working the fair. Thank you to the Officer that helped me out when someone almost hit my truck as I was about to leave the fair this evening. I truly appreciate you.

I remember the first time I saw my father as a Trooper working traffic at the fair...around 1966..

Gorgeous picture! Thanks for sharing.

Nice picture!

Pretty picture. State fair is a lose. We went yesterday drove 1 hr to get there and we live 20 min from it..... that’s not it entrance is okey we both fast line tickets to get in that was 78 for 3 adults and 2 children... we got in there we could not get tickets to ride any rides so we got some food walked around both some souvenirs all totaled 200 dollars very disappointing will not for sure go next year !!!!!

Please stay safe out there troopers!

And Remember the Speed Limit through the Fair Zone is 35 MPH ! Need to set up some radar as some don't know what 35 means.

So pretty.

When he worked in NOVA I always teased him about wearing his long sleeve shirt in the middle of the summer. I asked him if he knew of a cold front coming that the weatherman didn't know about. We both laughed about it each time I teased him over it. He told me the real reason why and it made a ton of sense. Good man gone way too soon.

Thank you Sir for your service.

Two More #Roanoke Men Arrested in Connection to Eastern Avenue Marijuana Distribution Conspiracy, Shootings: Chad Custer, Darion Harvey Are Fourth Defendants Arrested in Recent Days

Roanoke, VIRGINIA โ€“A pair of Roanoke men, Chad Custer and Darion Harvey, who conspired with others to run a marijuana operation out of a rented, Eastern Avenue home in the City of Roanoke, have been charged in a federal criminal complaint with drug and gun charges. United States Attorney Thomas T. Cullen made the announcement today as part of the Western District of Virginiaโ€™s ongoing Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative to reduce drug and violent crime.

Custer and Harvey are the latest in a series of arrests tied to the alleged drug operation at the Eastern Avenue home. Earlier this week, Aaron Woods was arrested and charged with federal drug and firearms-related crimes.

โ€œThese and other recent arrests reflect the commitment of federal law enforcement and the Roanoke Police Department to respond, in an aggressive manner, to rising levels of violence and organized drug activity in the city,โ€ U.S. Attorney Cullen stated today. โ€œWorking collaboratively, we will continue to investigate individuals and groups engaged in these activities and, when appropriate, prosecute them in federal court.โ€

As alleged in the criminal complaints, Woods, Custer, Harvey, and others had been working together since at least 2017 to distribute large amounts of marijuana from an Eastern Avenue home Woods rented. Law enforcement estimated that a dozen or more individuals would visit the home each day to purchase marijuana from large, vacuum-sealed bags left out on a table. According to witnesses, purchasers streamed in and out throughout the day as others played video games, smoked marijuana and socialized. Witnesses described seeing Woods, Custer and Harvey in possession of firearms, which they kept out on tables or in their waistbands.

Nolan Kyle Harman, also of Roanoke, was charged federally in February of this year for making straw purchases of firearms for Custer, at Custerโ€™s request.

The complaints allege the distribution activity at Woodsโ€™ Eastern Avenue residence culminated in a shooting death on July 10, 2018. According to witnesses, three individuals who had earlier in the day left the residence following an argument about a marijuana purchase, returned around 9:45 p.m. Something like a brick was thrown through the front, plate glass window at which point Woods, Harvey and Custer began shooting. Two-way gunfire ensued, resulting in the death of an individual who was shot in the head and neck as he/she apparently attempted to flee the scene. Woods, Harvey, Custer, and others, fled the Eastern Avenue home following the shooting.

Investigation of these cases was conducted by the Roanoke City Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearm, and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Roanoke County Police Department, the Bedford County Sheriffโ€™s Office, the Virginia State Police, and members of the regionโ€™s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) task force. Assistant United States Attorney Kari Munro will prosecute these cases for the United States.

These cases were brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justiceโ€™s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

A criminal complaint is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. These defendants are entitled to a fair trial with the burden on the government to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Unites States Attorneyโ€™s Office Announces Arrest of Two Tied to Recent #Roanoke Violence, including Eastern Avenue Shootings

Roanoke, VIRGINIA โ€“ Aaron Lee Woods of Roanoke, whose Eastern Avenue home was alleged to have been something like a โ€œfast food operation for marijuana,โ€ was arrested on a federal criminal complaint last week and charged with crimes related to federal drug trafficking and firearms offenses. United States Attorney Thomas T. Cullen made the announcement today as part of the Western District of Virginiaโ€™s ongoing Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative to reduce drug and violent crime. In a separate criminal complaint, U.S. Attorney Cullen announced the arrest of Tyrik Dausha Merchant on one count of being a convicted felon illegally in possession of a firearm.

โ€œThese arrests underscore the commitment of federal law enforcement to address drug trafficking and rising levels of violence in Roanoke,โ€ U.S. Attorney Cullen stated today. โ€œWe are working closely with our partners at the police department and expect additional federal arrests in the near future.โ€

As alleged in the criminal complaint, Woods and others not named in court documents were involved in a conspiracy since at least 2017 to distribute large quantities of marijuana in the Roanoke Valley. Woods operated at times from a residence on Eastern Avenue leased in his name. On a typical day, witnesses described a steady stream of marijuana purchases at the house during the afternoon and evening hours. A dozen or more individuals, on average, would stop in to purchase marijuana from large vacuum sealed bags Woods kept on the coffee table in the living room while others played video games and socialized. Witnesses told law enforcement that firearms were frequently in view in the residence, on tables or leaning against the wall during periods of peak distribution.

The complaint alleges that the distribution activity culminated in a shooting death on July 10, 2018 at the Eastern Avenue address. According to witnesses, three prospective marijuana purchasers who left the residence empty-handed earlier in the day returned to the residence around 9:45 p.m. According to witnesses, something like a brick came through the front glass window, at which point two-way gunfire ensued. Woods, and others, began shooting from inside and in front of the residence. During the course of the shootout, one individual was shot in the head and neck and killed during an apparent attempt to flee the scene. Woods and others fled his Eastern Avenue residence following the shooting.

According to a separate complaint, on or about September 14, 2019, Merchant was at the 7-11 convenience store located at 3602 Williamson Rd., N.W. in the City of Roanoke. Witnesses and surveillance cameras showed Merchant approach a vehicle in the 7-11 parking lot, draw a pistol, and fire at the driver of that vehicle from a distance of no greater than four feet away. The driver of the vehicle returned fire, hitting Merchant several times. A Roanoke City Police officer was able to recover Merchantโ€™s pistol from the parking lot where Merchant dropped it. Merchant had previously been convicted of a felony, and so was prohibited from possessing a firearm when these events occurred.

The investigation of these cases was conducted by the Roanoke City Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearm, and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Roanoke County Police Department, the Virginia State Police, the Bedford County Sheriffโ€™s Office, and members of the areaโ€™s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force [HIDTA]. Assistant United States Attorneys Kari Munro and Andrew Bassford will prosecute the cases for the United States.

These cases were brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justiceโ€™s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them.

Good job VSP, HIDTA and all LLEA involved.

Thank you!!

I guess they didn't get the memo from the state lawmakers. All felons must turn in their weapons at once. Oh wait, I forgot that only applies to honest citizens of Virginia. Criminals and Felons and a** holes are exempt.

24018 here, first, I want to express my deepest gratitude. I have been following this page for about a year, and have been overwhelmed by the incredible work being done. I realize these activities sometimes result in the loss of Virginia’s finest, and I will keep them in my prayers. Finally, work needs to be done in the ROANOKE City area, 24014 & 24016. The meth has moved in about two years ago. They drop a few of them off, they hid in broad day begging for money on our street corners. They push their product and establish an army of addicts, who only care about getting high. Personally, I have 0 compassion for these maggots. They destroy our communities and our children suffer.

It will be best for all of VA to legalize marijuana and put forth drug efforts on far worse like meth and heroin

Leave these guys alone... the governor needs their votes!

K9 Flash is a beautiful um officer. I’m sure he does exceptional work in the field. Thank you for your service Flash. Keep up the great job !

I’ve heard this trooper is ruff with the evals! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜. Thank you both for your service. Be safe!

Every Trooper starts the evaluation year as an exceptional employee and it's the Sergeant's job to bring them down from that level over the next 12 months!

Just ask for a little bit of understanding Trooper Burke.

I meet these two at this year's National night out in Crewe Va. Wonderful officers! God bless you keep you safe and thanks for what you do!

I’m sure he got an excellent evaluation โค๏ธ if not I’m sure he could be a pain in the butt - I would not turn my back on that big boy ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„. Thanks to all the canines and their handler’s. They do a great job in the Commonwealth. We Thank You all.

Negotiation can be ruff. Take a minute to paws, and accept that both are extraordinary contributors to the community!

I’m sure Trooper Burke got a great eval. Flash knows where his food and treats come from.๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ–ค

Good job and keep up the great work

Both doing a great job !

Thank you for your service

Great picture!

I think he's asking for a raise. More doggy biscuits!

Wow, what a tough (but so cute) supervisor you have Trooper Burke! I don't think you have a chance to win an argument with him. lol

Looks like this canine warrants an exceptional rating. ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Next year, Trooper Burke, you should start heavy treats 2 weeks before your evaluation and a t-bone dinner the night before.. a little bribery for the boss goes a long way ya know..lol

Trooper Burke's expression is priceless. Suggestion - give Flash a few extra treats and a new chew toy!

When I was a handler with the Michigan State Police, the other Troops told me that if they could they could teach my dog to drive, they wouldn't need me!!!!!

OAN that dog has such a beautiful coat.

He deserves whatever he wants . Officer Cutie-Pie๐Ÿ˜

My goodness that dog huge , bet he’s the best ever though lv this picture

Ret. Sgt. Dean says "you got this, Trooper Burke!"

-- "Settle down pooch … I'm working on your EWP Performance Evaluation!"

Give them both "extraordinary contributor" and a raise. โค๐Ÿ˜Š

Two Defendants Convicted in Major Drug Conspiracy: Defendants Trafficked Crystal Ice and Other Drugs into Southwest #Virginia from Georgia

Abingdon, VIRGINIA โ€“ Two members of a drug distribution organization that trafficked methamphetamine, heroin, oxycodone, cocaine, and other drugs from Georgia into Southwest Virginia were recently found guilty following a five-day jury trial in federal court on drug conspiracy charges, United States Attorney Thomas T. Cullen and Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring announced.

Roy Lee Dykes, 51, of Watkinsville, Ga., formerly of Big Stone Gap, Va., was convicted of one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and distributing 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, in addition to cocaine, heroin, alprazolam, and oxycodone. Dykes was also convicted of 17 counts of distributing and possessing with intent to distribute controlled substances on a number of specific dates. At sentencing, Dykes faces a mandatory minimum sentence of imprisonment of 10 years and a maximum statutory penalty of up to life in prison and/or a fine of up to $10 million.

Leila Varetta โ€œRitaโ€ Hector-Dykes, 57, of Watkinsville, Ga., was also convicted of one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and distributing 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, in addition to cocaine, heroin, alprazolam, and oxycodone. Hector-Dykes was also convicted of one count of distributing and possessing with intent to distribute controlled substances. At sentencing, Hector-Dykes faces a mandatory minimum sentence of imprisonment of 10 years and a maximum statutory penalty of up to life in prison and/or a fine of up to $10 million.

โ€œMethamphetamine trafficking is currently the greatest threat to public safety in far Southwest Virginia,โ€ U.S. Attorney Cullen stated today. โ€œWe will continue to collaborate with our federal, state, and local partners to identify individuals responsible for distributing large quantities of this deadly substance and put them in federal prison.โ€

โ€œThis organization trafficked large amounts of crystal ice into Southwest Virginia. We appreciate the partnership with the U.S. Attorneyโ€™s Office and federal, state, and local law enforcement to crack down on those who transport dangerous drugs into the Commonwealth for distribution,โ€ Virginia Attorney General Herring said today. โ€œReducing the availability of crystal methamphetamine and other drugs in Southwest Virginia is a high priority for my office. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our law enforcement partners and will continue to aggressively prosecute those who endanger the lives of our citizens.โ€

In all, 11 individuals were charged as part of this drug trafficking conspiracy. All 11 defendants have now been convicted. Dykes and Hector-Dykes are scheduled for sentencing on December 19, 2019.

According to evidence presented at trial, these defendants conspired to traffic a variety of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, morphine, oxycodone, and alprazolam, from sources in Watkinsville, Georgia, into Southwest Virginia for redistribution. The organization operated primarily in Lee and Wise counties from November 2016 through March 1, 2018. Arrests on March 1, 2018, resulted in the seizure of approximately 11 ounces of crystal ice methamphetamine, in addition to heroin, cocaine, morphine, and oxycodone, with an estimated street value of $28,000. Currency totaling approximately $14,000 was also seized from the defendants on that day.

The investigation stemmed from another drug trafficking conspiracy arising out of Lee County, Virginia, involving seven defendants, all of whom have been convicted and sentenced. Another four defendants, including Dykes and Hector-Dykesโ€™ sources of supply, were also identified and prosecuted during the course of these investigations. In total, these investigations have led to the successful prosecution of 22 defendants and removed a conservative estimate of 3.5 pounds of crystal ice methamphetamine from the supply chain in Southwest Virginia.

The investigation of this case was conducted by the Southwest Virginia Drug Task Force, Virginia State Police, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Numerous agencies assisted with search warrant executions and arrests on March 1, 2018, to include the Drug Enforcement Administration, Big Stone Gap Police Department, Lee, Wise, and Scott County Sheriffโ€™s Departments, City of Norton Police Department, and the U.S. Marshals. Special Assistant United States Attorney M. Suzanne Kerney-Quillen, a Virginia Assistant Attorney General assigned to the Attorney Generalโ€™s Major Crimes and Emerging Threats Section, and Assistant United States Attorney Kari Munro prosecuted this case at trial for the United States.

I think of all the lives saved because you made the drugs unavailable for sale. Who knows what is in these drugs? Thank you all for your time, hard work and your dedication. I know many agencies work together to make these apprehensions possible. Thank you to all of you.

Thank you to All who helped with this...many lives were saved I'm sure.

keep up the good work.

Thank you for protecting us.

Thank you Virginia State Police ๐Ÿ’™ Well done

Great job VSP, and all LLEA’s involved.

Thank you for all you did in getting them put away. Such nasty drugs have made those already odd or off kilter people all the more scary and super crazy when they interact within our society. Admire how you are always there protecting us right from the start of any criminal activity.

Great job, thank you.

Thanks to all you guys, you are the best !!!

I never knew a problem like that existed there. My mother was from Lee county, but that was in the 30s. What a shame.

Great team work!!

Roanoke 24014 is crawling with meth addicts. Specifically the Franklin Road exit off 581/220. And the problem is growing. I’m a local business owner and have witnessed 2 occasions, within the last month, of addicts smoking their glass pipes in public broad day. Is this what we have to look forward to when you let these non-violent offenders walk!?

Bust them all

Manufacturers should have to provide rental cars for owners with cars included in safety recalls. Many don’t have the ability to wait for these things to be fixed.
