Stafford, VA. Multiple suspects have been charged after illegal drugs were found hidden in mail sent to several inmates at the Rappahannock Regional Jail in Stafford County.

Over the past several months, members of the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit (SIU) and the Rappahannock Regional Jail’s Gang Unit have been investigating numerous individuals who were involved in attempting to have illegal drugs smuggled into the jail through mail.

During the investigation, more than 8 pieces of mail were seized for containing hidden illegal drugs. The inmates who received the mail were identified as Darnell Richardson, 30, of Spotsylvania; Robert Keating, 27, of Spotsylvania; Kody Banks, 27, of Stafford; and Jeffrey Kenniston, 23, of Stafford. Detectives determined that the inmates were working together to attempt to smuggle the illegal drugs into the jail. They were served warrants for conspiring to deliver drugs to a jail and other drug-related charges.

The suspects responsible for sending the illegal drugs to the inmates were also identified. Juanita Miller, 52, of Spotsylvania has been charged with conspiring to deliver drugs to a jail. She was released on bond. Amber Rogers-Amos, 30, of Spotsylvania has been charged with delivering drugs to a jail, distribution of a schedule III drug, and conspiracy to distribute.

Rogers-Amos was arrested at her home by the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Unit after she jumped from a second story window in an attempt to avoid arrest. She was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

The investigation is ongoing and additional suspects may be charged at a later date.
