The captain of a sheriff's department in Virginia said a SWAT team's assistance was employed in a recent drug-related operation. The captain stated he believed it was necessary due to certain projected risks associated with a suspected drug ring the department was attempting to infiltrate. It all went down when SWAT members made a surprise visit to a home in Spotsylvania County. Drug charges were later filed.
Multiple individuals were recently charged following an investigation of alleged gang activity. Twenty people, some from Virginia, are now facing federal crimes charges, including racketeering. Each of these individuals will have the opportunity to respond to those charges, as they attempt to present their side of each case.
