Greene County man indicted on drug charges
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A Greene County man is facing multiple federal drug charges concerning fentanyl.
On Wednesday, a federal grand jury in Charlottesville handed up an indictment against 28-year-old Trevail Stuart Woodson, who was arrested in Harrisonburg in October following searches in Greene County, Harrisonburg and Charlottesville.
According to a release, he is charged with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine after more than 10,000 fentanyl pills and a kilogram of fentanyl powder were found in his possession.
The indictment also includes charges of distribution of fentanyl, possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.
“One kilogram of fentanyl has the potential to kill 500,000 people. This lethality of synthetic opioids is simply staggering, and my Office will continue to prioritize prosecuting those who seek to profit by preying on our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh.
Court documents show that in late 2022, the Jefferson Area Drug Task Force and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration began to investigate Woodson.
On Oct. 6, a search warrant was executed at Woodson’s home in the Ruckersville area, at which time, officers recovered 10,181 fentanyl pills, 1.1 kilograms of fentanyl powder, more than five kilograms of methamphetamine, 360 grams of cocaine, and nearly a kilogram of heroin.
They also recovered six firearms, including an AR-style rifle, and more than $12,800 in cash.
