Tri-County Narcotics Task Force arrest 15 in Operation Heat Wave

In the morning hours of Wednesday, Sept. 26 the Tri-County Narcotics Task Force rounded up 14 people on various drug charges. The first arrest in Operation Heat Wave occurred on Sept. 25 and the 15th arrest was of an individual who is incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on unrelated charges.

Police also seized narcotics, a handgun, ammunition and drug paraphernalia to include scales and a smoking device at the residence of Charles B. W. Sneed, age 20 of Colonial Beach.

Wednesday's round up began at 4 a.m. and ended around 7:30 a.m.; processing suspects took until around 9 a.m.

All but two individuals were held without bond and were arraigned in Westmoreland Juvenile and Domestic Court to allow the swiftest court opportunity.

Sheriff C. O. Balderson said that all arrests were conducted without incident and the investigation is continues with other arrests pending.

Operation Heat Wave has been ongoing for five months and is a combination of efforts by the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s office, King George County Sheriff's Office, Caroline County Sheriff's Office, Virginia State Police and the Naval Criminal Investigative Services.


Virginia Alcohol and Beverage Control and Tappahannock Police Department also assisted in the round up.

Balderson said he is very proud of the efforts from all personnel who participated in this operation. “We will continue to conduct our activities to halt the use and distribution of all illegal substances in Westmoreland County.”
