Caroline probe nets two on heroin charges
A tip to police led to the arrest of two Richmond men charged with supplying heroin in Caroline County.
Caroline narcotics investigators received information that two men were staying at a local motel for the purpose of distributing heroin, said Sheriff Tony Lippa Thursday.
A two-day surveillance operation, which included undercover purchases of what was suspected to be heroin, he said.
Lippa said the two men left the hotel room last Thursday and were stopped for a traffic violation.
Investigators reported finding about $1,500 worth of heroin in the vehicle, Lippa said.
Deangilow Hill, 33, and Garmill Smith, 30, both of Richmond, were arrested and both were charged with two counts of distributing heroin, two counts of conspiracy to distribute heroin and one count of possessing heroin with the intent to distribute and one count of conspiracy to possess heroin with the intent to distribute.
Both men are being held at Pamunkey Regional Jail without bond.
