Winchester man faces multiple charges

James Atwell Judy Jr.

A Winchester man faces several charges after police say they found him with bags of suspected marijuana.

James Atwell Judy Jr., 51, was stopped Sunday driving a 1996 Lincoln Town Car by Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office deputy Christopher Manich on Capon Street in Strasburg.

In his complaint, the deputy stated that when he first approached the vehicle, Judy gave him a false Social Security number that came back to another person. An investigator was able to identify Judy after his arrest.

The deputy found five small bags of a green leafy substance and $5,167 in cash, according to the complaint.

When Manich ran the license plate, he found it was registered to a 1997 Mitsubishi.

Judy faces charges of possession with intent to sell marijuana, obstruction of justice for providing a false identity to law enforcement, driving after being declared a habitual offender, improper registration and possession of a title issued to another vehicle, according to jail records.

Judy is being held at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail in Warren County without bond until his court appearance on April 27.

In 2013, Judy faced charges in Frederick County General District Court of driving after being declared a habitual offender as well as fleeing and eluding, according to public records.
