Mass arrests made in Caroline drug raid

Two dozen people were arrested this week as a result of Operation Impact, an undercover drug investigation by the Narcotics unit of the Caroline County Sheriff’s office.

Sheriff Tony Lippa said 32 people are facing 94 charges ranging from distribution of prescription pills to cocaine, heroin and marijuana.

Arrests teams were deployed around 4 a.m. Thursday morning to conduct mass arrests throughout the county, Lippa said.

The following people were arrested within the Four Winds resort community in the Rappahannock Academy area of Caroline related to the illegal sale of prescription pills and marijuana:

Edward Eugene Cox Jr., 48; Teresa Newton, 52; Heather Jean Larossa, 45; Mary Ridley Pike, 66, David “Davie” Jones Jr., 38; Lynn Denise Rowan, 37; Richard Shane Riggleman, 43; Ross Julian Pollitt, 49; Jason Michael Bisser, 26; and Jacqueline A. Mitchell, 27.

Others arrested include:

Ruther Glen residents Timothy Vernon Morris, 48 on two counts of distributing cocaine; Justin Michael Leslie, 19, on four counts of distributing marijuana; Antoine Jermaine Johnson, 30, on one count of distributing marijuana; Lisa Michele Tony, 27, on three counts of distributing heroin and prescription pills; Vanessa Sanders-Johnson, 49, on three counts of distributing prescription pills; and Jessie Briscoe Beverly Jr., 20, on three count of distributing marijuana.

Woodford residents Laura Ellen Valdez, 62, on two counts of distributing prescription pills; Edward “Booby” Childs, 33 on one count of distribuing marijuana; Billy Joel Jolin, 44, on one count of distributing prescription pills; and Michael Wayne Murphy, 42, on three counts of distributing marijuana and prescription pills.

William Paschall, 59, of Leavells Road in Fredericksburg was arrested in Pittsylvania County early Friday morning.

On Monday, the Tri-County Drug Taskforce, which consists of deputies from Caroline, Westmoreland and King George sheriff’s offices, the Virginia State Police and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, executed a search warrant at a home in Caroline Pines subdivision in Ruther Glen, Lippa said.

Robert and Deborah Stead were arrested and charged with distributing marijuana and prescription pills.

On Wednesday, Lippa said Caroline investigators assisted by the State Police executed a search warrant at a home in Milford where they arrested and charged 28-year-old David Swisher on three counts of third offense distribution of cocaine.

“This operation has been ongoing for nearly two years and has resulted in the arrests of more than 70 suspects at this point,” he said. “Investigators have seized large amounts of marijuana, prescription pills, ecstasy, cocaine and heroin during this operation.”

Lippa said more arrests are expected as a result of this operation.

    I like how I’m guilty until proven innocent.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    I like how I’m guilty untill proven innocent. Ya’ll need to get the facts straight before you wrongfully accuse someone, but after it is all said and done they will be facing a lawsuit on caroline county police, and the person that turned me in. That is messing around with a king george cop.

    bs is all I have to say untill I go to court then everything is going to be said……

    And no the cops have not seized large amounts of evidence they have nothing on me…….

    this isnt jackie, its her husband, hey editor..operation impact was a joke,yep, the big time caroline county police sure did accomplish one thing and thats violating a load of civil rights, but go figure the lame stream media needs to lie to make police look good, it was a form of martial law, now i dont condone drug usage, even in a raid people have the right to know what they are being charged with BEFORE they are kidnapped from their homes at 6 in the morning, but editor, why dont u say anything about civil right being violated, or do they exist anymore, all the cops did is get a bunch of charges gathered up, you know it too, thats the bad thing, so please be fair and at least mention the faults on both sides, just because they a labeled “police”, doesnt mean they are truth tellers, they treated my wife worse than ive seen them treat a goddamn repeat offender on a malisuos wounding charge after being caught red handed. as you can see, there is alot of anger here and im not the only one. poeple need to know, and they cant know the full truth with editors half assing the story. sorry for being mad at extremely bad police procedure.

    they say they got my wife on audio….AUDIO..pssst lmao…we dont live in 1985 anymore. lawyers are better now in 2012….usually when u get possession, you need it found on your person, not a tape, 9 tenths of the law, lol, caroline itself is a joke, when did the cops search anything to find anything, hey editor, make sure you show up at the court date so you can edit your story, and i emphasize STORY., what they did isnt any different than me saying that you are under arrest for putting drugs in your arm, you didnt do it, but since the cop said you did than your gone nuff said, behind closed doors the fact is that certain cops do what they want, and they are hepled by the people like you who print what they say, im not against the law in general, im against tyranny matter who  its against. and WE THE PEOPLE, should rise up against prick cops who THINK they are the law, again this isnt jackie

    its been going on 2 yrs. and that is all they have is someone informing them of people she has gotten a bone to pick with, like me defending her from making fun of my special needs niece, and she got fired from guard shack here because she used one of her friends daughters pee to pass the drug test to get the job at guard shack, then she starts turning people in to make money but not all of us are guilty…..but ya’ll don’t print that why?cause she is messing with a king george cop…..she is the one they need to be arresting if you ask me(this is jacqueline mitchell typing now)n i got proof of what I’m saying…GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU ACCUSE INNOCENT PEOPLE!!!!!!!!

    this is the sad thing about america, we ignore the real problems, we ignore threats, we ignore people when they are mistreated, we are not united anymore, we are the divided states of america

    now what do you do when you are detained from 6 am, to 10 pm, without being read your rights, and denied a phone call, all this happened with the caroline county police, i was denied to put my bra on, had sexual comments and jestures at me at the jail, is there anyone who acually wants to help, or do we gotta pay for our rightful justice. you shoulnt have to pay for justice, it should already be there for people who need it. having to pay for justice is bullshit, and for the caroline county, you can paint a terd white and dip it in perfume, but its still a piece of shit

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    ok, my wife gets arrested and charged with possession with intent, my wife hasnt been pulled or even spoke to a cop since 2007, how do you get charged with possession with possessing anything…i hope you are a good editor, if you are youd write about the the false arrests that were made, but when court comes, youll see, and if you dont report it right, then we are gonna bring you up in the lawsuit. thats a promise. from casey mitchell

    i was reading my paper work to find the arresting officers name, and its not on any of the papers they gave me, i wonder what excuse the law will invent now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrea.mitchell.3950 Andrea Mitchell

    Well wouldnt you know Tony Lippa is up for reelction, this article is so misleading the reporter quotes a source “he said there were large amounts of drugs recovered”
    but from who and where and in which bust were these large amounts of drugs recovered it makes it look like it all came frome this one raid. If its not an iresponsible trigger happy cop its a dumb ass reporter too lazy to do her own investgation. Just take the sherrifs word for it we all know that the police are never wrong and certainly the police would never falsify information. This whole operation impact is just to make Lippa look good for reelection. His personell should be investigated for sexuall harrasment as well as false arrest. Anymore the police make me want to vomit.
    Tommie T totaly pissed off.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    lippa is like obama, dont do shit throughout his whole term, now rushes to do something, and is wrong as shit on most of the crap hes rushin to do, it would take a broke ass county like this to vote on the tyrant, where is internal affairs when you need them

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    isnt it weird how this happens just in time for reelection, when there isnt alot of crime, the cops need to invent shit to get their quota, ive known too many cops in my life, and they all sing like birds when u talk to them,  its sad that its gonna take a lawyer to make them do a correct job. i would think that if u properly investigate something for a year or so, you should get what u was lookin for right?  so whers the big dealer, a whole year and yall find nothing…lmao

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrea.mitchell.3950 Andrea Mitchell

    I am sure that a few of the people arrested were doing the wrong thing but I am also sure that most of these people are innocent victims of a piss poor investigation. Just read this article carefully where are the folks arrested side of the story? Waste of tax payer money to jail someone for smoking pot , how about having some balls Tony Lippa and Portsia Smith and investigate real crimminals. Oh thats right up for re election are ya. If someone done an investigation they would blow holes in the investigation your people did. The least you could have done is let my sister in law put her bra on but then your officers wouldnt have gotten to comment on how nice her breasts are, how about checking into that. i am sure the cops would deny it we all know they are all upstanding citizens.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

     we called the cops on a guy in here for showing my son his dick, instead of me putting his bony ass in a bucket somewhere, i called the caroline county cops on him, just for them to tell me that sinceTHEY didnt see it then they cant do anything, i guess my eyes arent good enough, what do you do when tha law is a failure, who do you call, a lawyer, well that brings up a good point of the law knows that most people cant afford one so tha law gets away with breaking itself

    but realize that an arrest does not mean guilt

    editor dont even write back on email either…lmao…wait till court

  • OldSaying

    The old saying goes if you lay down with the dogs you get up with the fleas. Ever heard of guilty by association? Don’t blame the reporter she is just repeating the store she got from the County. She is smiling not because you were caught because she probably is a very nice person unlike the rest of these posters. If you do wrong you will eventually get caught so you have to suck it up and pay the price. Don’t go blaming everybody else for your stupidity. Maybe now you will reevaluate your lives and turn around and do the right thing for a change. If you want to dance you got pay the band.

  • Portsia Smith

    This is the reporter that wrote the article. The article says the people involved were ARRESTED & CHARGED. Was that not true? The article does not state innocence or guilt. That is for a judge to decide. I would suggest not posting on a public site bc it can be used against you in court. And fyi-Tony Lippa is not up for re-election. He won that in November.

    we will find out. then sue
     

  • Portsia Smith

    What alias? And why the name calling? You’re not helping yourself. sh

    that is an old saying…wonder who u work for…and if u was as wise as u are old then youd realize u proved my point of a lazy reporter not going out to report but letting it fall into her lap, as a matter of fact, the only fact is you r ignoring the real problem of unlawful police, and while certain police arent at work…thet talk, and another thing, i said nothing that could get me into trouble..this isnt jackie..ill dance with u

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    its easy for ANYONE to make comments, but it really makes more sense if you saw it like i did, and then make comments, that way you know what you are talking about instead of blocking certain things out of your head…my wife is innocent period

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacqueline.mitchell.397 Jacqueline Mitchell

    to the editor, yes you are right, there were arrests and charges, sorry for my anger at the situation, but there was still civil rights issues that WILL be brought to light…and to the old saying, you are right about if you lay with dogs you get up with fleas….but in some cases, how do you know who a dog is anymore, i mean we have preachers screwing kids anymore, i never saw a preacher as a dog, just like my wife has no clue what type of friends she had, its not like she knew them longer than 2 weeks, she wanted to just have a friend to chill with thats all, and being with a closet smoker or junkie doesnt indicate stupidity, it points out that she cant read peoples minds and automatically know what they do, especially if they hide it from you..point is you yourself could be something and just put up a peaceful front to hide what you really are, not saying you are though but hopefully you understand my fear and anger and what i said in the top of this paragraph about preachers, well not all preachers are like that either, if you dont show it people dont know it. my wife is 99% at home mom, she got caught up in the mix and I pulled her away from the real crap. again sorry for my out bursts, but if you were here to see it, youd change your tune, i mean who knows about civil rights better than a newspaper editor ya know…i was still wondering why the cops didnt present me a warrent, no rights were read upon the wrongful arrest, why havent you tried to find out these kinds of issues, its like you are ignoring those facts on purpose. why?
