On 11 December 2014, 0800 hours, law enforcement agents from the ABC Board, Town of Bedford PD, and the Virginia State Police assisted the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, Vice/Drug Unit, in the service of arrest warrants on eighteen persons charged with the distribution of illegal drugs and prescription drugs (pills, cocaine, marijuana, and heroin). The arrest took place throughout the county and in the Town of Bedford.
A list of persons arrested and the exact charges against them will be provided to the media as soon as possible.
“I want to commend the public for their assistance in this effort. We received information through our Facebook and Twitter accounts and our land line which assisted in our investigation. In this regard, I would encourage our communities to reach out to us if they have information on illegal drugs in their community. ALL information provided to us is kept CONFIDENTIAL!”
Taking these drug dealers out of our communities may have saved a life during this Christmas Holiday…citizens of Bedford County, keep up the good work!
As in past Christmas ‘Round Ups’, we presented every person arrested our, now famous, Miranda Christmas Card that is attached to this email. Most took it in the spirit of holiday giving and several weren’t too happy to get them.
