Year Long Drug Probe Leads To 28 Arrests

A 12-month investigation has resulted in the arrest of 28 individuals within the Central Virginia region on approximately 100 drug and firearm charges. The Central Virginia Drug and Gang Task Force (CVDGTF) initiated “Operation Ice Melt” Thursday morning at residences and motels across the counties of Appomattox and Campbell, and with help from authorities in Amherst Conty. The charges stem from indictments recently handed up by both a Campbell County grand jury as well as a multi-jurisdictional grand jury. More than 3,139 grams of methamphetamine, 212 grams of heroin, 54 grams of cocaine, 7,732 grams of marijuana, 251 MDMA tablets, 75 Morphine doses, and 10 Acid/PCP doses with a total estimated street value of $647,063 were seized during this extensive investigation.
