In a major crackdown on illegal drug activities, Tri-Rivers Task Force Agents, supported by James City County Police, have successfully conducted a major drug bust. The operation, which was planned over several weeks, was aimed at disrupting the illicit pill distribution network and ending the menace of drugs in the community.
The search warrant was executed at a James City County residence on Feb. 9. The search led to the seizure of approximately $13,400 in US currency, approximately three pounds of crystal methamphetamine, over 400 illicit pills, and numerous items of paraphernalia. The recovered pills are suspected of containing Fentanyl; the investigation is ongoing. Arrested during this operation was James B. Baynor, 72. Baynor is a resident of James City County.
The Task Force Agents and James City County Police Department are committed to making the community a safer place and will continue to work tirelessly to eradicate the drug menace. The department would like to thank the York-Poquoson County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit for their vital assistance during this operation. The department encourages anyone with information about illegal drug activities to contact them.
The Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force is a task force comprised of investigators from the Virginia State Police, York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office, Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office, Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, Mathews County Sheriff’s Office, City of Poquoson Police Department, James City County Police Department, and the City of Williamsburg Police Department.
