Today marks the five year anniversary of the murder of Captain Kevin Quick. This morning we gathered with family and friends to honor the memory of our fallen brother. Although Kevin is gone from this earth, his memory continues to live through all of us who were blessed enough to know him.

Rest in peace my brother.

Kevin was a dear friend and co worker. Sad to think our attorney general at that time Eric Holder took the death penalty away from these vicious people who did this. R.I.P. Kevin and we will always miss you.

This will never be forgotten. Prayers for his family his brothers and his friends. There was no justice in this sinceless murder. Thank you for your service

A terrible loss for Waynesboro and his family RIP you are not forgotten

Thank you for always remembering him and honoring him as he deserves. A special thank you for sharing his memory with his sweet, precious little girl and letting her see what a good man her Daddy was. 🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏

His poor mom is still devastated, his belongings are still where he left them. I am sure I would do the same if it was my son.

One great person. So glad I can call him my cousin. Love and miss you Kevin.

Our city, our state, and our nation lost a good man that day. We will not forget him. Sometimes there's Justice, sometimes there just us. Hold the line!

Rest In Peace and in our hearts forever my dear friend

R.I.P Kevin.

May comfort be felt by family an family in Blue

Amazing young man he was

I think of him often and I still pray for his family. What a tragic loss.

What a wonderful tribute!

Remember this day like it was yesterday, so sad .

RIP my friend. I was honored to know you as a special friend and a co-worker.❤

It’s so hard to believe it’s been 5 years. There’s not 1 day that goes by that I don’t think of you & your contagious smile & laughter that you had! I was blessed to have such a wonderful, caring & loving cousin! God only takes the best but why I’ll NEVER understand.. 💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤

Rest in peace.

Rest in peace...

Still miss you dear Kevin🌹❤️

To read this really saddens me Sara. I hope you can find peace through all of this. Love ya girl!!

We will never forget!!!! I worked with Kevin at Invista and will never forget his kindness and good nature! We held our breath when he went missing and prayed for his safe return. My heart was broken when we learned of his fate. Rest in peace, dear friend!

Thank you for sharing that Tami!

MEDIA RELEASE

WPD Special Operations Division and JADE Task Force Raid Local Hotel Room and Encounter Armed Juvenile

January 24, 2019

On January 23, 2019, members of the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division and the Virginia State Police Jefferson Area Drug Task Force (JADE) executed a joint narcotics search warrant at a hotel in the 2000 block of Rosser Avenue in the City of Waynesboro, VA. As the raid team approached the hotel room, a male, later determined to be a 15 year old, ran from the room and ignored police commands to stop. Two Albemarle County Narcotics Detectives, both members of the JADE Drug Task Force, gave chase. As the juvenile ran from the officers, he drew a 9mm handgun from his waistband and continually brandished it during the chase. After several hundred yards, as the detectives closed in on him, the juvenile first threw the gun near Rosser Avenue and then took off a backpack that he was carrying and discarded it. He was soon thereafter apprehended by the detectives.

Inside the backpack, police recovered 50 grams of methamphetamine (with a street value of approximately $5,000) and additional 9mm ammunition. The 9mm handgun that was recovered had an obliterated serial number so police believe it may be stolen. Police also recovered $3,500 in cash from one of the juvenile’s pockets.

The juvenile, who admitted to having just smoked methamphetamine prior to the incident, was transported to Augusta Medical Center for treatment for injuries sustained during the foot pursuit. He was treated and released to police custody. He is currently being held on a juvenile detention order at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Detention Center. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a firearm while in possession of a Schedule II drug, underage possession of a handgun and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.

Additional drug paraphernalia and a half ounce of marijuana were also recovered from the motel room during the ensuing search.

More arrests are pending.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends the following actions to stay safe this holiday season:

It is never okay to drive drunk or high. Designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride share service to get home safely.

If a friend or family member is impaired by alcohol or drugs and planning to drive, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get home safely. Don’t worry about offending someone—they’ll thank you later.

Be alert and distraction-free, and if you see an impaired driver, call 911 as soon as it is safe to do so.

Buckle up. Wearing your seat belt is your best defense against an impaired driver.

On behalf of the men and women of the Waynesboro Police Department, have a happy and safe holiday season.

I have not drank in 16 months

if you plan on drinking... regardless of the amount, take a ride to the event. Studies have shown that if you drive to the event then you feel obligated to drive home. This eliminates that option.

December 18, 2018

The Waynesboro Police Department honored one of its officers and two citizens at an awards ceremony held on Wednesday, December 12th, 2018.

The department’s lifesaving medal was presented to Officer Alison Willis who on July 20th, 2018 responded to the Comfort Inn pool where it was reported that an adult female was drowning. Upon arrival Officer Willis found two citizens, Mrs. Debbie Roberts and her grandson Zachary Tomey, removing an unresponsive female from the pool. Officer Willis and Mrs. Roberts quickly assessed the victim and found she was not breathing and had no pulse. Together they administered CPR and ultimately the victim was successfully resuscitated and made a full recovery.

For their immediate action which was instrumental in saving the life of a fellow citizen, the department presented its Citizen’s Lifesaving Award to both Mrs. Roberts and Mr. Tomey. (Mr. Tomey was unable to attend but Mrs. Roberts accepted his award on his behalf)

Also on December 12th, The Waynesboro Police Auxiliary held their annual awards banquet where three of their members were honored and recognized. Sergeant Ben Kontaxes was presented a departmental Commendation and received the Auxiliary’s Curtis Glass Award. Sgt. Paul Harris was presented a departmental commendation and was named as the 2018 Auxiliary Officer of the Year. Both of these officers were recognized for their tireless efforts and dedication while organizing and executing a recent auxiliary police officer training academy, including the final field training exercise.

Lastly, Lt. Colonel Corey Fox was recognized for providing the most volunteer hours to the auxiliary unit during this past year for a total of 259 hours.

DON'T LET THE GRINCH RUIN YOUR ONLINE SHOPPING!!

Here are some tips for you to consider:

1. Links in emails, tweets, posts, and online advertising are often how criminals compromise your computer. If it looks suspicious, it’s best to delete it.

2. Don’t share your personal or financial information over an unsecured network (a connection that doesn’t require a password for access). Using the direct web access on your phone (via 3G/4G connection) is generally safer than an unsecured wireless network when on your mobile device.

3. Make sure the website you are ordering from is legitimate. This includes a closed padlock on your web browser’s address bar or a URL address that begins with shttp or https. This indicates that the purchase is encrypted or secured.

4. Use safe payment options. Credit cards are generally the safest option because they allow buyers to seek a credit from the issuer if the product isn’t delivered or isn’t what was ordered. Never send cash through the mail or use a money-wiring service.

5. Keep a paper trail. Save records of your online transactions. Read your credit card statements as soon as you get them to make sure there aren’t any unauthorized charges. If there is a discrepancy, call your bank and report it immediately.

WPD Conducts Raids at Local Business and Residence

December 13, 2018

On December 13th, 2018, the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division and Patrol Division conducted simultaneous search warrants at a local Mexican market and at the business owner’s residence. At approximately 5:30 pm, police descended on the Mexican store, Abarrotes La Victoria, located at 440 West Broad Street in the City of Waynesboro. Police detained one of the store owners at the scene while a search of the store was conducted. During the search, police seized 39 grams of methamphetamine (with a street value of $3,900), a handgun, $1900 in cash, a 2010 Ford F150 King Ranch pickup truck and thousands of money wire transfer receipts from the business.

As a result of the items found at the scene, 40 year old Waynesboro resident Ramon Aguilera Bedolla was taken into custody for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs.

At the same time police were conducting the raid at the store, a second search warrant was being executed at Bedolla’s residence in the 2000 block of Whitebridge Road in Waynesboro. At that location, police recovered more money wire transfer receipts and over $8,000 in cash.

Bedolla was held on a $2,000 secured bond and transferred to Middle River Regional Jail.

This incident is part of an ongoing investigation into a large scale methamphetamine trafficking organization that spans from central Mexico to Waynesboro and the Shenandoah Valley. Additional arrests are pending.

$2,000? Seriously?? How about no bond. No plea deal. Just lock him away. Sorry, but meth is ruining too many lives to keep letting these people back out onto the streets to continue selling. Charge the top guys with murder... cause in reality that's what they're doing by making this trash available!!

2000$ bond seriously?? Damb they held my son on 2500 for driving charge..what they thinking

Damn, we live paycheck to paycheck and there's people running around Waynesboro with thousands in their pockets.

Nooooooooooo That's where I get my tortillos!!! 😥

While it is great that this trash is getting taken off the streets because it poisons our children families and communities it's sad to see good ppl make wrong choices especially with children. I'm glad wpd is cleaning up ensuring future generations a chance at a cleaner life but this is a son husband and father we need to figure out what causes these ppl to make these horrible choices if we truly want to get it gone for good.. I would never have thought in a million years this place would be involved in something so horrific 😣

Made me laugh so many times and saved a dance for me when I would see him and Vive💜

One of the best men I ever knew...REST IN PEACE...you have earned it

This man taught me how to swim and dive at the waynesboro moose lodge. He was absolutely an amazing man.

A man anyone would be honored to serve under!

Lt. Belch joined the PD the same year I started at Fishburne Military School. Even then I had a keen interest in become police officer and often spoke with WPD officers when I saw them downtown. I am sure that I spoke with Lt. Belch back in the day. My sympathies to his family and the officers and community of Waynesboro.

What a wonderful man he was! I graduated school with his daughter Laura. He was always so nice to me, when I hung out at his house with her. Such a kind soul.

He an d his granddaughter were at the moose with us all the time yu will b e missed

RIP and thank you for your service!

One of the greatest guys and sargent I knew...RIP my friend...nice service at the moose also....

A tremendous public servant, husband, father and friend. I am blessed to have been able to spend many many hours with him driving circles around the city with frequent stops at Weasie's. God Rest his U.S. Army Old Guard soul.

❤️🙏🏻💙

Erika your dad was a very loved man ❤️

Bands of heavy snow continue to develop and pivot north in a corridor from central Virginia to southern Maryland. Visibility may be reduced to a quarter mile or less at times, making travel very hazardous. Snowfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour are possible.

Snow plow crews and first responders from the City are out. Please use extreme caution if you absolutely must travel somewhere.

MEDIA RELEASE
Simultaneous Drug Warrants Yield Multiple Meth Arrests

November 28, 2018
On November 28th, 2018, the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division and SWAT Team conducted simultaneous drug raids at adjoining apartments in the 600 block of North Delphine Avenue. As a result of the guns, drugs and other evidence found at the scene, multiple arrests were made and multiple arrests are pending.

In the first apartment, police encountered a total of two adult females, four adult males and one juvenile male. Methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were recovered from four of these suspects. This drug evidence was collected and sent to the forensic lab for testing. Warrants are pending for these suspects and they will be named when arrested.
In addition to the drugs found on the suspects present at the scene, a .12 gauge shotgun and several grams of methamphetamine were recovered from a room at the residence as well. As a result, warrants were obtained for 57 year old William Gregory Gibson, of Waynesboro, for possession of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs. Gibson remains at large.

In the second apartment, police encountered a single adult male. A small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were recovered at this location and warrants are pending for simple drug possession. The offender will be named when the arrest is made.

As police were conducting these searches, a car arrived at the scene with four occupants. Police detained all four and recovered methamphetamine and paraphernalia from all four occupants. Police discovered a loaded .45 cal semi-automatic pistol concealed under one of the passengers in the rear of the vehicle. Approximately two ounces of methamphetamine (with a street value of approximately $5000) and over $700 in cash was also seized. For three of the suspects in the vehicle, the evidence was seized and sent to the forensic lab for analysis. Charges are pending for these suspects and they will be named when charged. One suspect, 28 year old Staunton resident Cody Brandon Christian, was arrested at the scene for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Police were able to determine that Christian was renting a room at the Howard Johnson Hotel on North Central Avenue in Staunton, Virginia. Staunton Police executed a search warrant at his room and recovered more narcotic paraphernalia and additional evidence related to the gun charges placed on Christian. Additional charges are pending in Staunton for Christian as well. Christian is being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.

"for rent... in the area of the 600 block of N.Delphine Ave" lol... and I would question the landlord too.... and possibly the management of the hotel/motel for accessory....my landlord used to know everything I did... drove by the property everyday and told me my grass needed to be mowed on a regular basis... stop harbouring them for money

👏👏👏

Keep cleanin' up those streets! Great job WPD!

Still ALOT more of these low lifes out there....LOCK THEM ALL UP!!!!

Oops .... one drug dealer someone will fall in and take over. As long as addicts or casual users want it there will be someone to provide We have to make it difficult fot people to get hold to the ingredients to make these drugs. Drug test everyone that get a Drivers Licence. We test people that are applying for jobs.

Way to go, keep it up law & drug enforcement! I consider hard drug dealing ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON WITH OR WITHOUT GUNS!

Great job Wpd, taskforce, I lost my niece to a drug of in 2016. Dealers don't care if they kill their customers as long as they get their money. So glad to see this effort to rid our city of this. Keep it up.

Good job wpd

just hoping Staunton starts rounding them up like this, what a great day that would be.

Good work, WPD! Stay safe out there! Thank you for keeping us safe!

Keep them behind bars and go get the rest of them WPD!

Good job SPD and WPD get them all off the streets if I gotta pay taxes so should they. Unfortunately Market and Demand seems to predict we lock up one dope dealer pf th

I remember the parade was during the day light.

As you brave the cold and the crowds to find those “BLACK FRIDAY” deals, we would like to remind you of a few holiday shopping safety tips:

Try not to shop alone.
Always be aware of your surroundings.
Report any suspicious activity immediately.
Keep any packages you put inside your vehicle out of sight or in the trunk.
Park in a well-lit area.
Keep your children in sight at all times.
Never leave your car running.
Always lock your car.
Don't drive distracted.
Be patient and courteous.

Have a safe day!!!

According the the Augusta County Sheriff's Office - Sheriff Donald L. Smith, the Kate Collins Middle School Shelter closed at 5:00 PM.

The roads in Waynesboro are still very icy and there are a large number of trees and power lines down all over the city. Many of the City residents are still without power and a good number of the traffic lights are not functioning due to power outages as well.

If you don't need to be out, please stay at home and off the roads. If you do venture out, please be extremely careful and mindful of the first responders, City employees and power company employees that have been out all night and will continue to be out all day, serving our community.

Be Safe and Thank You

It's not like these people didn't know what drugs could do to them.they have to take responsibility for their actions. We have to stop defending this non sense. I'm all for God's love and believe 100% that he could save every single person on this list. I also believe that he gives us all free will and we have a choice, unfortunately they chose poorly and should absolutely face the consequences of that. When they get out and they paid their debt to society they get another chance. Hopefully they all make better choices next time.

Good. Clean it up Waynesboro.

Let's get these people help who truly want it...I'm not talking 30 days and drop them on the streets, I'm saying 12 months to 2 years to get there minds halfway back.

I love how they used people's social media photo... that's funny right there

Well when are they going crack down on the violent criminals. You know the ones that prey on children?

Man yall will believe anything ✌

So no violent crimes on this list?

Does this include the other valley fog "drug bust" they also had that was also about 50 people

Ashleigh Loree Bryant !!! We were just talking about one of these people!!!

Some people just never learn....

I'm gonna assume most of the schedule 1 and 2 are weed related?

FYI... The National Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) reports that in 2014 approximately 53 people per 100,000 were receiving care at a specialized addiction treatment facility for issues involving methamphetamine.... be glad your not one of them!!!!

Y’all better run! They’re coming to get ya! 😆

#come

It is all drug related. So sad.

Drugs are for losers!!!

Wow so sad how some NEVER learn

Maddie Cale

26 people at large. Makes the cops look bad.

Telling ya Waynesboro is buckling now

*loads beanbag gun* lets go

Sierra Skye Worley

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. [7] So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

They aren't gona put out false warrants and they aren't gona say they are the police for simple fact it's against the law....So nine times out of ten it's real

Sad what drugs have done to our area! Unreal the number of women who are now involved with drugs now days.

Every time I drive into wboro I feel like I'm on the set of the walking dead there's so many methheads

Thank goodness we got that MARIGUANA off our streets! Just one MARIGUANAS can kill someone! 🙄 What would we do without the extortion and kidnapping by our government!?!?

Do we have any clinics in the area where these people can go for help? Just wondering because other areas that have this much methamphetamine traffic they have clinic set up to help people get off of it. Just wondering where the clinic is in this area or if we even have one????

An allusion to an utterance of Jesus' in John 8:7, viz. “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” The people are pretty good about criticizing have you ever prayed for them!

The court system won't do jack nothing to to these people. Another drug dealer will pay bail and back on the street again

Sending Prayers🙏🙏🙏.these people need Jesus in their life

But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. [7] So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Holy Moly!!! Way to go WPD!!! Clean out this beautiful little town ❤️

And all they'll get is a slap on the wrist

PROUD OF THE WAYNESBORO POLICE DEPARTMENT!!!!!!

I forgot this was going on, and came into town on main street this afternoon. Signage was fine, but might I suggest a bit better crowd control from the people directing traffic and pedestrians? It was an absolute free for all, with cars and people pulling out in front of other drivers. Meanwhile, the few people I saw standing in the road in fire/police gear seemed to not be paying any attention to it.

With Halloween coming up tomorrow,the Waynesboro Police Department would like to offer a few helpful safety tips to trick-or-treaters, parents, and motorists:

Trick-or-Treaters:

Make sure to bring a flashlight and cellular phone on your trick-or-treat outing
If the lights are out at the house, pass it up
Be mindful of the street names and addresses on your trick-or-treating route
Be careful crossing the street!

Parents:

Accompany your child on his or her trick-or-treat outing
Pay attention to your surroundings and report anything suspicious immediately
Do not allow your child to accept anything that appears inappropriate or suspicious
Inspect your child’s candy before they eat it

Motorists:

Drive carefully in neighborhoods
STAY OFF THE PHONE AND DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE
Don’t drive while wearing bulky costumes
Be aware; law enforcement agencies across the area are holding enhanced DUI patrols on Halloween night; if alcohol consumption is part of your celebration, designate a driver.

Thank you WPD!!! Got all my stuff back and caught them!

My question is why Matthew got released on $50 bond and... nvmd

Looking like some standout citizens.

Does the white boy have lipstick on??

#9pmroutine Remove your valuables, Lock your car, Take it (purse, wallet, cell phone) with you. Always remove firearms from your vehicle & secure safely inside your home. Also understand the laws that govern the use of protecting your home, family, & self from crime. Use of excessive or deadly force when you are not personally attacked or at a time when you are not in fear for your life is going to let a perpetrator walk and put you behind bars when you are the victim to begin with.

Guess video games wasnt enough for these 2.

Wonder if they are connected to the vehicle break ins at the YMCA.

Great job

Great Job !! 2 more winners behind bars.

Ask them if they took my black school back pack out my 2000 f150 2 door truck and its blue it had my school laptop in it. 😂😂😂🤣😂😂 but really doe. 😂🤣

Looks like the 2 they just arrested for breaking into vehicles in Hopeman Station

Someone please identify these cats. Keep going in hard working people cars, sheds, and homes. Very scary and dangerous.

We are curious to know "what they were up to."

There was 3 WPD cars just up from my house last night on Gum Had a car stopped and was going though it .

And what are they up to! I know, No Good! But not much about a so called incident. Just wondering!

It isn't called curious. It's called being nosy and minding your own buisness.

Methamphetamine Trafficking Arrest

On October 19, 2018 members of the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division, Waynesboro SWAT team and agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations executed search warrants at Tienda La Mexicana, a Mexican-themed market located at 401 North Poplar Avenue in the City of Waynesboro.

The search warrant immediately followed the arrest of 40-year-old Waynesboro resident Nancy Martinez, who was taken into custody for four felony charges stemming from an ongoing investigation into a Mexican Drug Trafficking Organization. A second search warrant was executed simultaneously at Martinez’s residence in the 500 block of King Avenue in Waynesboro. During the arrest and execution of the two search warrants, police recovered thousands of money wire transfer receipts, financial documentation and a large amount of U.S. currency.

The arrest and searches were the culmination of a year-long investigation into drug smuggling and money laundering committed by a network of Mexican foreign nationals who were trafficking large amounts of methamphetamines through a network of illegal immigrants and local residents residing in the City of Waynesboro and surrounding areas. As the store owner and operator of Tienda La Mexicana, Martinez is accused of utilizing at least four of the money wire transfer services located in her store to send money from local drug dealers back to the Mexican suppliers in central Mexico.

Martinez was charged with four felony violations of Virginia State Code as a result of the investigation:

18.2-256/18.2-248 (H1): Conspire to act as one of the principal organizers of a continuing criminal enterprise engaged in the trafficking of methamphetamine (Unclassed felony). A conviction of this violation carries a 20-year minimum mandatory sentence.

18.2-516: As a person who owns or operates an enterprise, engaging in illegal money transmission which was derived from racketeering activity (Class 6 felony)

18.2-246.3: Knowingly conduct a financial transaction where the accused knew the property involved was from illegal and felonious activity (Unclassed felony)

18.2-256/18.2-248.01: Conspire to transport methamphetamine into the Commonwealth of Virginia (Unclassed felony)

This investigation is ongoing and more arrests are pending.

Having lost a brother and niece to this addiction, thank you WPD. I want all drug dealers locked up and off the streets. It is killing our children, our friends, our brothers, our sisters, mothers and fathers.

Good job WPd

The meth doesn't appear to be working

So very sad. She has 2 small children. Heartbreaking for them. 💔

Maybe she is selling to by more food

Lock her up for a long time!

Good job, WPD!!!

I feel sorry for her Children. But she knew what she was doing was wrong. WTG WPD!! Thank for your hard work on trying to keep out streets clean.

Great job get more of them

Keep up the good work get this crap out of this area !

Great job WPD.

So it is okay to supply drugs to kids and teens in the area..

Womp womp

Or maybe stop locking people in cages for something they put in their own body? It's alarming that she will spend more time in jail for a victimless crime than someone who admits to rape and child pedophilia.

Y’all wanna burn this girl at the stake but you’re probably all for pharmaceuticals and your “nerve pills” and “pain pills”. I love it! Keep pointing fingers and judging because that helps.

Waynesboro, VA – On 24 September, 2018, members of the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division executed a search warrant in the 200 block of South Winchester Avenue in the City of Waynesboro. As a result, two subjects were arrested on outstanding felony warrants. 36-year-old Brandy Renee Fitzgerald and 25-year-old Benjamin Thomas Reeves, both of Waynesboro, were arrested on outstanding felony warrants for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to transport methamphetamine into the Commonwealth of Virginia. These warrants were issued at the culmination of a several month-long investigation into a Mexican Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) which was recruiting local residents to transport bulk shipments of methamphetamine from the Western United States directly to Waynesboro and surrounding areas. Reeves and Fitzgerald are charged with transporting several pounds of methamphetamine for this DTO directly into the City of Waynesboro. Both Reeves and Fitzgerald are being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.

I think these two need our prayers God wouldnt want us name calling

Name calling and bullying leads to low self asteem that leads to suicide or drugs think about that good citizens!

Wonder if this had anything to do with the 4lbs found during a traffic stop the other day or if this is a separate case?

Keep getting the trash off the streets Waynesboro PD

Great Job !!!! keep on putting in jail where they belong .😁

Keep up the good work. 👏🏻👏🏻

Wow nice going Brandy 🙄 Tami Hemp check it out, hopefully she gets some help

👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👌👌👌👌👌👌

Thank Goodness They were Caught Glad I am also reading this late

This drug culture breaks my heart and angers me and at the same time! God help these drug dealers & adficts! I see drug dealing as "ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON" but I also remember these dealers are somone's children dealing and helping killing someone else's children! Law enforcement can only do so much....

Cody Lee Elkins and I seen brandy the other day at sheetz

John 8:7 Verse Concepts But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." I hope they both get the help they need.

AWESOME job WPD

Awesome job!!! So proud of the men in blue

Outstanding!

Thank you, Police Officers! ❤️🙏

Not good

Good job guys!!

Great Job !! 2 more scum bag's off the streets.

I have no Sympathy for the drug cartel or their mules. You bring it in to sell it go to jails. That's where I believe you belong. Go straight to jail do not collect $200 go to jail. You bringing the stuff in and its killing families and anybody else that can get their hands on it.

Sick trashy people.

Waynesboro, VA – On 23 September, 2018, members of the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division recovered 4 pounds of crystal methamphetamine following a traffic stop and narcotics K9 alert on West Main Street in the City of Waynesboro. As a result of the find, police arrested a husband and wife team from Aurora, Colorado for methamphetamine trafficking, felony child neglect and conspiracy to transport narcotics into the Commonwealth of Virginia. 30-year-old Jose Edwardo Basuro Munoz and 29-year-old Karina Soto Garcia, both residents of Aurora, Colorado, were taken into custody at the scene of the traffic stop and are being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail. The couple’s two children that were in the vehicle when it was stopped, a 7-month-old boy and an 8-year-old girl, were taken into temporary custody and placed in foster care by the Department of Social Services. The wholesale value of the methamphetamine in Central Virginia is an estimated $60,000 dollars. If sold at street value in this area, the drugs could have had an economic impact in excess of $180,000.

On 8/16/18 the Waynesboro Police Department arrested two adult males on unrelated charges from the same traffic stop.

Officers were contacted by an anonymous caller who advised they had observed 31 year old Waynesboro resident Brandon Lamont Carter driving a vehicle in the 900 block of Hopeman Parkway and police were aware there was an active warrant for his arrest.

Officers performed a traffic stop on the vehicle that Carter was driving and arrested him for a warrant that had been issued for misdemeanor assault and battery.

During the arrest of Carter, officers recognized 29 year old Chiejio Ja’meze Davis in the passenger seat of the stopped vehicle. Davis was wanted on several outstanding warrants unrelated to Carter’s charge which included:

Destruction of Property/Misdemeanor from Waynesboro (VA Code: 18.2-137)

During the arrest of Davis, officers recovered a stolen Glock Model 23 pistol with two loaded magazines and a small container of suspected controlled substances. After the discovery by officers, Davis was charged with four additional felonies which include:

Sookie wth is going on here. Not Bishop

In Staunton from 2011 and 2012, based on numbers from USA Today garnered from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, city police had a black arrest rate of 403 arrests per 1,000 residents, compared to an arrest rate of 149 for non-black suspects. For Augusta County, the rates were 88 arrests per 1,000 black residents and a rate of 36 for non-blacks. In Waynesboro, there were 274 arrests per 1,000 black residents and 121 per 1,000 for non-blacks. The data was published as several high-profile incidents in the U.S. prompted a closer look at police practices.

The Waynesboro Police department has arrested two adult males and one juvenile male in connection with a robbery that occurred last night at a Waynesboro convenience store.

Officers responded to the Kings Market located at 80 King Avenue at approximately 10:45 P.M. on August 6, 2018 for an armed robbery that had just occurred

Dispatch information relayed that two male suspects had entered the store wearing bandannas over their faces with what appeared to be handguns in their waistbands. Demanding cash, the suspects obtained an unknown amount of money then fled the store heading north towards Ivy Street.

As officers arrived at the scene, other units converged on the neighborhoods north of Ivy Street. As further descriptions of the suspects were broadcast, one of those units observed two individuals matching the description running through a yard in the 100 block of Henry Avenue.

These subjects were detained near the basement of a residence on Henry Avenue. A third suspect was subsequently located at the same residence, along with numerous items of evidence including two bb guns as well as an undisclosed amount of cash.

Subsequent investigation led to the below charges against the following suspects in the case.

MEDIA RELEASE
August 2, 2018

A Waynesboro man has been arrested for breaking into Kate Collins Middle School and causing substantial damage to pipes in the ceiling of a boiler room.

City firefighters were initially dispatched to the school due to a fire alarm shortly after 7:00 a.m. Upon investigation, they found that the alarm was caused by a burst pipe in the boiler room. Upon further investigation they discovered a male subject who began acting disorderly among the pipes that crisscrossed the room overhead.

Firefighters immediately summoned police who arrived and began attempting to apprehend the suspect who was still disorderly and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. During the officer’s attempts to get the suspect to climb down or to contain his movements, the man continued damaging pipes and other equipment and even broke off pieces of pipe in an attempt to assault the officers. The subject even threw a small piece of concrete at an officer before he was finally taken into custody.

No officers or firefighters were injured during this event and the suspect was taken to Augusta Health Emergency Department where he is being treated for drug related illness.
Officers continue to assess the damage to school property which at this point is estimated to be well over $1000.00. In addition authorities are trying to determine exactly how the man entered the school but believe he may have come in through a roof hatch located in the boiler room where he was found. A review of school security camera footage may yield answers to this question as well as how long he was in the school before causing the damage which triggered the fire alarm.

As a result of this incident, Christopher Allen Jackson, 26, has been charged with Breaking and Entering, Felony Destruction of Property, Assault and Battery of a Law Enforcement Officer, Obstruction of Justice, Disorderly Conduct and Trespassing.

He is currently in police custody at Augusta Health and will be brought before a Magistrate for a bond hearing upon medical clearance.

Great job, WPD and firemen! Sounds like a dangerous situation that you resolved safely. We're lucky to have you!

Who give him the help he wants help but he was told no

It's sad to see my community that values its Christian sentiments react so angrily to this woman, absolutely vile. God said to love all your neighbors, not just the ones you like. Someone sit down with her and talk to her because its obvious she needs it.

Copper theft is a big problem. Likely after an easy score for his next fix.

STUPUDITY ON DOPE!!!!

MEDIA RELEASE

July 20, 2018

The Waynesboro Police Department held an awards ceremony on Wednesday, July 18th to present the 2017 Employee of the Year Award and recognize another officer for exceptional performance.

Officer Jesse Feazell was selected as the Department Employee of the Year. Officer Feazell is a 7 year veteran of the department who is assigned to the Patrol Division where he serves as a field training officer (FTO). In addition he is a member of the department’s bike team and SWAT.

Officer Feazell was singled out for his work ethic and positive attitude, but most importantly, the outstanding leadership displayed while mentoring our younger officers in the field training program.

Officer David Layman received the department lifesaving medal for actions he took on May 15th, 2018 while on duty as a school resource officer at Waynesboro High School.

On that date he observed a student in the cafeteria who was visibly in distress and displaying the “universal signs of choking”. Officer Layman quickly assessed that the student was not able to breathe and immediately performed the Heimlich Maneuver, a proven method for clearing a foreign body obstruction from the airway. The procedure was successful in clearing the student’s airway and after being checked by the school nurse the student required no further medical attention.

Officer Layman’s quick and decisive action was directly responsible for saving the life of this student who without his intervention would have soon been rendered unconscious, and in respiratory arrest.

Officer Layman is an 11 year veteran of the department and has been assigned as a school resource officer for the past 5 years.

I’m glad someone else agrees with me! Could you all hear me yelling at my phone? I would love to know the justification for such a low amount? He had over $37k what makes them think that he couldn’t afford $1500?

1500$ for real.... knowed people held alot more than that for nothing near those charges..smh...

It's sad to see my community that values its Christian sentiments react so viciously. God said to love all your neighbors, not just the ones you like!

1500 seriously

Why did he get bail, Unbelievable.

$1500 bond...? 🤔

What a joke! 1500! Pocket change to a drug dealer.

DRUG DEALING TO ME SHOULD BE CALLED BY LAW "ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON" period!

😮

Good grief! A $1500 bond = $150 to get out of jail?

fishing permit.... catch and release

Seriously keep the deadbeat in jail

Your day's coming.....

Wow my17 year old got 3 years for just driveing a car and his friend took pot from a girl just enough for one bowl

He's probably snitching now

Hes obviously cooperating with police, aka a snitch, thats a good indication as to why the bail was so little, singing like a canary...

He doesn't get a 50 yrs he's working it's no bond on this much dope I don't know if it's safe for him to be out because we know it wasn't his he may be safer in jail they want to know where he got it from or else

I want his weed lol lol

Don’t play music when the fireworks are going off

Due to the extreme storm we are currently experiencing, we would like to remind citizens of some basic "safety" tips.

Report downed power lines immediately by calling 911.

Do not drive through standing water on roads or in parking lots.
The average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water, and roads covered by water are prone to collapse. Attempting to drive through water also may stall your engine, with the potential to cause irreparable damage if you try to restart the engine.

Pay attention to barricades. Don't ignore them by driving past them.

If you come upon a flooded street, take an alternate route.

Use caution when approaching intersections where the traffic control devices are "flashing" or inoperable.

Be smart and stay safe!!!!!!!!

I would just like to ask why the police department doesn’t block these roads off. We have had flooding on my road ever since I’ve been here and you have yet to come through here and block it off, even when we call you you don’t come. Why is that?

Thank you so much for the FYI. We need information when things happen. We need the communication. THANK YOU

Power out at big lots and dollar tree

We got 3.5 on Woodrow Ave.

I got 3.5” in my gauge near Ridgeview Park.

Any idea how many inches of rain we just got?

No rain in Forest

The Waynesboro Police Department continues its investigation into the June 4th early morning Armed Robbery of the Cook Out Restaurant on W. Main St.

Investigators have recently received surveillance footage from cameras inside the business which captured images of the suspect during the commission of the crime and are releasing stills from this footage in an attempt to produce leads in the case. Although the suspect’s face is not visible in the pictures, we are asking the public to observe the clothing, including the baseball hat, which may have distinctive logos or other characteristics.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-322-2017 or Detective Sue Vance at 540-942-6798.

Waynesboro Police responded to a report of an armed robbery early this morning at the “Cook Out” restaurant located at 1432 W. Main Street.
Officers arrived at approximately 1:33 A.M. to find that the business, which was closed, had been robbed and the manager had been injured during the commission of the crime. The suspect had fled the scene prior to police arrival and a search of the building and immediate area were unsuccessful in locating him.
Employees told police that they were cleaning up for the night when the suspect entered the store through the rear door which was momentarily unsecure due to a delivery that had just occurred. Once inside, the suspect brandished what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money from one of the four employees there. Once the manager was made aware of the situation he approached the suspect who subsequently struck him in the head with the weapon and demanded that he open the safe. The manager complied, but while the suspect was removing money from the safe, the manager attempted to disarm the perpetrator and was shot in the face during this struggle.
The Suspect then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The manager, a 23 year old Staunton man, was transported by rescue squad to Augusta Health Emergency Department where he was treated and subsequently released.
The suspect is described as a light skinned black male, 5’11 – 6’2”, weighing approximately 200-230 lbs. He was wearing a bandanna which covered his face along with a baseball cap, possibly a gray hoodie and dark pants.
