Cocaine and heroin seized after traffic stop in Opal

Deputies arrested aul Antonio Flores, 28, of Sumerduck, and Gary Dell Seamon Jr., 50, of Culpeper, on drug charges Saturday night at Opal.
Deputies seized 34 grams of cocaine and 11 grams of heroin after a Saturday night traffic stop in Opal, according to the Fauquier sheriff’s office.

“Corporal Andrew McCauley observed a 2014 Chevrolet pickup cross the center line several times on Opal Road” around 9:50 p.m. Feb. 3, Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release.

The pickup “turned into the Opal McDonald’s parking lot,” after Cpl. McCauley activated his cruiser’s emergency lights and siren, according to Sgt. Hartman.

Master Deputy James Arrington and his drug-sniffing dog Bane arrived quickly.

The dog “conducted a free-air sniff of the truck and a subsequent search led to the discovery” of the cocaine and heroin, along with “suspected opioid pills,” Sgt. Hartman said.

The deputies charged:

• Raul Antonio Flores, 28, of Sumerduck, with possession and intent to distribute cocaine and heroin. Mr. Flores drove the truck.

• Gary Dell Seamon Jr., 50, of Culpeper, with possession of a controlled substance. The deputies also served Mr. Seamon with an outstanding Culpeper arrest warrant.

At the time of the arrest, Mr. Flores was held on a $25,000 secured bond and Mr. Seamon on a $5,000 secured bond, according to Sgt. Hartman.

The search of the vehicle by the "drug dog" was good police work. This was a good investment by the Department and I totally support having dogs available around the clock. They could be used to assist State Police along I81, perform building searches, as well as random searches of school lockers in the high schools. Lets keep our community as safe as it can be.
