Two more arrested in meth bust

WOODSTOCK – Shenandoah County sheriff’s deputies have arrested two more people on drug and gun charges stemming from the execution of a search warrant at a suspected methamphetamine laboratory near Mount Jackson.

The defendants, Fallon K. Frye, 22, and Kenneth Miller, 28, both of 102 Smoot Trailer Park in Mount Jackson, join four other defendants arrested last week after deputies executed a search warrant at a mobile home at 742 Massanutten Park.

Frye and Miller each were charged with one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, one count of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

Maj. Scott Proctor of the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office said Frye and Miller were arrested at the trailer park on Saturday without incident. Proctor said the arrests were linked to a lengthy list of items recovered as a result of the search warrant.

“That search warrant resulted in the seizing of several firearms, one with a silencer,” Proctor said.

Search warrant papers filed Monday in Shenandoah County Circuit Court list 17 revolvers, rifles and shotguns seized in the trailer. The search warrant inventory also includes ammunition; cell phones; an unspecified white powder residue; scales and a smoking device.

The search warrant affidavit states that Shenandoah County Sgt. Brent Lutz and several other law enforcement officials found suspicious items in two trashcans outside the mobile home.

The search warrant affidavit states that the items included “several precursors that could be used to manufacture methamphetamine along with plastic baggies with residue that tested positive for methamphetamine.”

Proctor said Frye and Miller were being held without bail in the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail as of Monday afternoon. Both are scheduled to appear at 9 a.m. Sept. 18 in Shenandoah County General District Court.
