Duo allegedly dealt heroin from Warrenton home

Rachel Lynn Griffith, 25, and Huixian Nadir Solis, 30,face charges of heroin distribution.
Fauquier sheriff’s detectives and Warrenton police charged two town residents with heroin distribution after searching a house on Gold Cup Drive early Tuesday morning.

“A month-long investigation into the alleged distribution of heroin by an occupant of the residence, and from the residence, resulted in the search,” sheriff’s Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release.

Sheriff’s Detective Jonathan Waddell got a search warrant for the home at 629 Gold Cup Drive on Feb. 13.

“Multiple controlled purchases of heroin have been conducted from or set up by Rachel Griffith,” Detective Waddell wrote in his affidavit for the warrant.

Another detective was present “during all controlled purchases,” the detective wrote.

After the 7 a.m. search of the home, authorities charged:

• Rachel Lynn Griffith, 25, of Warrenton, with three counts of distribution of heroin and one count of possession of a schedule II substance.

• Huixian Nadir Solis, 30, of Warrenton, with two counts of distribution of heroin. Mr. Solis was in jail on unrelated charges at the time of the raid, according to Sgt. Hartman.

Authorities held Ms. Griffith in the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center on a $25,000 secured bond. Mr. Solis also had a $25,000 secured bond.

During the search, officers seized prescription pills, miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, a cell phone and digital scales, according to the inventory Detective Waddell filed in Fauquier County Circuit Court.
