WOODSTOCK – A grand jury indicted a Shenandoah County man Wednesday on drug distribution charges.
The grand jury handed up indictments in Shenandoah County Circuit Court charging Charles Daniel Hackley Jr., 38, of Woodstock, with two counts of distribution of cocaine and two counts of distribution of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school or child care center. The indictments charge Hackley with committing the offenses on Aug. 2 and Aug. 8.
An affidavit filed in the circuit court April 3 with a search warrant for 1252 Ox Road, Woodstock, states that a confidential informant working with agents assigned to the Northwest Regional Drug Task Force made a scheduled, controlled purchase of crack cocaine from Hackley near the Hampton Inn.
“The Hampton Inn is located near 1252 Ox Road and Hackley normally rides a four-wheeler from the Ox Road address to the Hampton Inn, and then back to the Ox Road address,” the affidavit states.
Task force investigators used a confidential informant on Aug. 2 and Aug. 8 to buy crack cocaine from Hackley at a nearby McDonald’s restaurant and the Hampton Inn, the affidavit states. Both times, Hackley rode a four-wheeler from the Ox Road address, completed the transaction, then returned to the Ox Road address.
Authorities later searched the Ox Road residence and recovered the following items, according to the inventory list:
• A clear container containing green plant material.
• A box of 9mm ammunition.
• A black Lorcin 9mm pistol.
• A black holster for a pistol.
• A 9mm pistol magazine.
• A clear plastic bag containing approximately 4 grams of a white, rock-like substance.
• A clear plastic bag containing approximately a half a gram of a clear, crystal substance.
• Three small black bags individually packaged containing approximately 4 grams of a white, rock-like substance.
• Two digital scales with residue.
• A white Samsung cellphone.
• An electric hot plate with residue.
• Two metal measuring cups with residue.
• A metal knife with residue.
• Three boxes of baking soda.
Authorities also searched Hackley and recovered a clear bag containing approximately a half-gram of a clear, crystal substance. Investigator E.M. Ramey filed an addendum to the search warrant inventory Thursday noting that instead of recovering $10,393 from Hackley, authorities found $10,293 on the suspect.
Investigators sought the search warrant to look in outbuildings on the suspect’s property and the affidavit notes that people engaged in narcotics activity often store drugs somewhere else on the property. Investigators also sought the warrant to search electronic communications devices because the transaction scheduled for April 3 was set up using a cellphone.
