Operation ‘Spring Cleaning’ Nets Thirteen

Thirteen is definitely an unlucky number for these suspects who were rounded up in the early morning hours of Monday March 25, 2019.

Thirteen individuals have been arrested on criminal indictments including various drug charges in what Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office is calling Operation Spring Cleaning.

All arrests were made without incident.

According to a Facebook Release by WCSO, “Westmoreland County Narcotics Detectives conducted the undercover investigation in conjunction with the Tri-County Drug Task Force. Members of the task force include the sheriff’s offices of Caroline, King George and Westmoreland, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Virginia State Police. Agencies that assisted during the morning operation were Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office and Northern Neck Regional Jail.”

The arrests span the Northern Neck including suspects from Kinsale, Montross, Hague, Callao and Warsaw. Suspects range in age from 20 to 70 years old and the majority of suspects have been charged with distribution or attempted distribution of various drugs.

Two of the suspects, Kevin A. Miles and Timothy B. Seward, were already being held at Northern Neck Regional Jail for other crimes or charges.

Among the charges is distribution of a Schedule I or II controlled substance N-ethylpentylone with the street name of ‘Molly’.
