Stafford, VA. A long term drug investigation came to a close Saturday morning with the arrest of a suspect on drug possession and distribution charges.
In recent months, detectives from the Special Investigations Unit of the Sheriff’s Office developed information that Michele Marie Deavers, 30, of Stafford was selling heroin and fentanyl in Stafford County. The investigation ended on the morning of July 21, 2018 when SIU learned she was traveling into the county from the City of Baltimore with a quantity of heroin. Deputies conducted a traffic stop in the area of Brooke Road and Mount Hope Church Road and Deavers was arrested on an outstanding drug warrant.
Opioids and crack cocaine were located during the traffic stop. In addition, a search warrant was executed at the suspect’s residence located at 59 Little Whim Road on the same day. Evidence indicative of drug distribution and drug paraphernalia was discovered.
Deavers was charged with possession with intent to distribute a schedule II narcotic and possession of a controlled substance. She was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
