On October 2nd at approximately 5:24 p.m. deputies responded to a residence in Stafford for drug activity. The victim advised they received a package in the mail that was sent to the wrong address. Within the package was a plethora of fentanyl pills. Approximately 15,000 pills were seized. Due to the nature of the incident, our Special Investigations Unit was notified and took over the investigation.
Jones was charged with conspiring to traffic fentanyl into the Commonwealth of Virginia, possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, and possession of a firearm while distributing fentanyl. Child Protective Services was notified and decided to remove the child from the residence. Jones was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
