133 Oxycodone pills seized during 1 a.m. traffic stop
Ellen Graham and Tina Kenny face three charges apiece resulting from the traffic stop early Saturday morning in Warrenton.
Two Warrenton women face drug distribution charges resulting from a deputy sheriff’s stop of their vehicle early Saturday morning.
Deputies seized Oxycodone, methadone and crack cocaine after stopping the vehicle for defective equipment at 1:07 a.m. March 2 on Frost Avenue in Warrenton, according to Sgt. James Hartman.
“During the stop, the deputy became suspicious there may be narcotics in the vehicle and requested assistance from a K-9 unit,” Sgt. Hartman wrote in a press release. “K-9 Bane conducted a free air sniff and alerted to the presence of narcotics. A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of oxycodone pills, methadone pills and crack cocaine.
“Both female occupants, identified as Ellen Graham and Tina Kenny, were taken into custody and transported to the magistrate’s office. It was discovered that Graham had attempted to conceal oxycodone in the patrol vehicle and Kenny had attempted to conceal crack cocaine during transport.”
The deputies seized 133 oxycodone pills, 3-1/2 methadone pills and 2.3 grams of crack cocaine, Sgt. Hartman said.
Ms. Graham, 65, of Warrenton, faces charges of possession of Oxycodone with the intent to distribute, possession of crack cocaine and possession of methadone.
Ms. Kenny, 43, of Warrenton, faces charges of possession of Oxycodone with the intent to distribute, possession of crack cocaine and a summons for defective equipment.
Both suspects remained at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center on $25,000 in lieu of $25,000 bonds.

JohnnyD - In that case I get where you are coming from, and yes drug dealers are poisoning our society, yet that is nothing new is it? Opium dens were prevalent back in the day. It's supply and demand. If there were no demand, then the suppliers would go broke. Fix the addicts and the dealers will disappear, no need to hang them. Just saying I'm not spinning anything that hasn't already been spun for centuries.

JohnnyD - Does that public hanging comment go for all colors of criminals or only African Americans? We have many white drug dealers and users in the area too. Check Judge Parker's record, I think you will find he was much harder on non-whites IMHO.

These drug dealers need to get the maximum punishment for trying to poison our community. Good job by the Sheriff's Deputy. We need to rid our community of these potential killers.

Parents, always remain hypervigilante with your children starting from middle school. Have the attitude you'd rather them made at you vs. Dead.
Be persistent and consistent. Don't permit them to stay overnight especially if their friends have older siblings. Children's neurons aren't developed til they are 23 or 24. They need parental involvement. Show up at school functions, volunteer, ask hard questions. These two women are examples of parents whose own children are also addicts. It will cause long term harm to serotonin levels and their intestines. Please watch over your children.
