FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Stephen A. Rubino, Major James City County Police
F. Troy Lyons, Captain York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office
Search warrants used in local meth investigation
The Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force in conjunction with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office and James City County Police Department executed five search warrants regarding the manufacturing and use of methamphetamine. The warrants were executed at three York County residences in the 1200 Block of Duncan Dr., the 1200 block of Wilkins Dr. and two James City County residences in the 1100 Block of Penniman Rd. and the 100 Block of Rondane Pl. These search warrants are the culmination of a five-month investigation.
Due to the hazardous nature of chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine, York County Department of Fire and Life Safety, James City County Fire Department and Regional Hazardous Materials Teams are on scene to assist law enforcement with any chemicals that may be found during the search. The chemicals that may be encountered DO NOT pose an immediate risk to the general public, however residents in these areas are asked to remain in their homes. Partial street closures may occur in these areas while the residences are being searched. In the unlikely event any residents will need to evacuate their homes, the effected residents will be contacted directly by Law Enforcement or Fire Department personnel.
Additional information will be provided once the searches are completed.
