Stafford, VA. Deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office arrested two suspects following a traffic stop after the vehicle returned stolen and counterfeit money was located inside.

On August 22, 2018, at approximately 10:11 a.m., Deputy Mulligan observed a vehicle pulling out of a parking spot quickly at the Motel 6 located on Warrenton Road. The deputy ran the tags and the vehicle returned stolen out of Westmoreland.

Deputy Mulligan initiated a traffic stop on Bellows Avenue. The juvenile driver and the passenger, identified as Donavin Lee Powell, 20, of Stafford were detained while deputies performed a search of the vehicle. The search revealed several counterfeit $20 bills in the juvenile’s wallet.

Deputies learned the juvenile was wanted on two felony detention orders out of Spotsylvania and Powell was wanted out of Fredericksburg for possession of a controlled substance.

Powell was taken into custody on his outstanding warrants and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail. The juvenile was transported to the Juvenile Detention Center and deputies submitted petitions for charges of possession of stolen property, possession of counterfeit money, and driving while suspended.
