DEA praises sheriff’s office heroin investigation

At Wednesday’s recognition: Sheriff Bob Mosier, Lt. Sean Healy, Capt. Ray Acors, DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge Kevin Carter, DEA Group Supervisor Mary Toomey and Special Agent in Charge Karl Colder.
The Fauquier sheriff’s office this week received Drug Enforcement Administration recognition for an investigation that led to conviction of a Warrenton heroin dealer whose product killed a customer and produced multiple overdoses.

A U.S. District judge in Alexandria on Oct. 21 sentenced Justin Chrisp to five years in prison. Mr. Chrisp in September pleaded guilty to charges of distributing more than 100 grams of heroin “to a network of customers in Fauquier County from 2010 to 2017,” Karl C. Colder, special agent in charge of DEA’s Washington Division, wrote in a letter praising the sheriff’s investigation.

“The successful prosecution of Chrisp was achieved only through the interagency cooperation between the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Washington Division Group 44,” Mr. Colder wrote. “Under the leadership of Captain Ray Acors and Lieutenant Sean Healy, detectives from the Special Operations Unit dedicated six months to this investigation ensuring all elements of Chrisp’s illegal activities were identified and successfully prosecuted.”

The letter names six Fauquier detectives who worked on the case, but the sheriff’s office asked reporters not to publish those names because of their work.

“In addition, special recognition should be made to Crime Analyst Kristie Koglin who provided invaluable analytical support to the investigation,” Mr. Colder wrote.

He thanked Sheriff Bob Mosier and his staff at a meeting Wednesday afternoon in Warrenton.
