A Stafford man got himself and a friend in trouble over the weekend after prank calling the Sheriff’s Office. However, he failed to flush away his contraband prior to deputies arriving.

On April 21st, at approximately 12:15 a.m. Deputy D.S. Jett responded to the Motel 6, located at 401 Warrenton Road, for a suspicious call. Dispatch received two calls from the same number, the first time the caller hung up, the second, the caller advised someone had a gun. Deputies arrived and made contact with the caller, Brian Lee, 39. Lee however, advised he never called. He also appeared to be under the influence during their conversation. Deputy Jett reminded Lee the importance of only calling 911 for emergencies and deputies left hoping that was the end of it. It was not.

Deputies left at 12:44 a.m. and at 12:45 a.m. dispatch received another call from Lee. Deputies, who didn’t have to travel far, responded back to Lee’s room. This time, there were three people in the room. The party of three quickly grew when three more individuals walked out of the bathroom. Amidst the growing number of individuals, Deputy M.A. Holub observed suspected controlled substances in plain view. One of the bathroom attendees, Kemonta Johnson, 32, of Hague, was wanted out of Spotsylvania for failure to appear.

Deputy K.P. Hall conducted a search incident to arrest for Johnson and located suspected controlled substances while Deputy Jett searched the room. Suspected controlled substances were located throughout the room, including in the toilet. It appeared someone attempted to flush the evidence, but in the process mother nature called, and subsequently the items were urinated on. Lee later admitted to not only urinating on the items in an attempt to destroy the evidence, but also called the Sheriff’s Office as a prank.

This so-called prank earned both Lee and Johnson a ride to Rappahannock Regional Jail. Lee was charged with possession of a controlled substance, destroying evidence, falsely summoning law enforcement, and possession of paraphernalia. Johnson was served on his outstanding warrant and earned a charged of possession of a controlled substance. Both were held without bail, and all six guests were trespassed from the property.
