Man free after drugs found in back of police cruiser

By Sally Voth svoth@nvdaily.com

WOODSTOCK -- A Winchester man has avoided jail time after a Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office deputy said he dropped cocaine in the back of a police cruiser.

Deloss Joseph Wolfe, 38, of 1204 Rockwood Trail, entered into a plea agreement Wednesday in Shenandoah County Circuit Court, according to court records.

The agreement amends the indictment against Wolfe from possession of cocaine to disorderly conduct, and calls for a 12-month sentence and $2,500 fine, with both suspended.

Wolfe, who entered an Alford plea in which he doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him, will be on unsupervised probation for a year.

According to a criminal complaint written by Deputy Tom Frazier in January 2011, he was transporting Wolfe, who had been arrested. After getting Wolfe out of
the car, Frazier found cocaine in a baggy in the back seat, the complaint says.

Frazier had checked the seat for contraband before driving Wolfe, and when he reviewed the surveillance video, Frazier said he saw him moving in the seat and could hear the handcuffs being manipulated, the complaint says.
