A Timberville man was arrested after being found with over $10,000 worth of drugs, including meth, according to the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force.
Carl Joseph Kagey, 67, was charged with distribution of a Schedule I or II Controlled Substance, a news release states. He is being held at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail without bail.
On Tuesday, the task force received credible information that Kagey was residing at the Budget Inn Motel in New Market.
According to the release, task force officers learned that Kagey had a large quantity of methamphetamine in his possession inside the room. The task force had purchased an amount of methamphetamine from Kagey during a controlled purchase operation last year and had an outstanding warrant for drug distribution in Shenandoah County as a result.
Task force officers obtained and executed a search warrant at Kagey’s motel room, which yielded approximately 241 grams of methamphetamine, with a street value of $10,200. One hundred Xanax with a street value of $300, two doses of LSD with a street value of $20 and $1,900 were also seized.
Kagey was arrested without incident.
The task force was assisted by the New Market Police Department and the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office.
The task force is composed of law enforcement personnel from sheriff's offices in Clarke, Frederick, Page and Shenandoah counties and the Front Royal, Luray, Strasburg, and Winchester police departments as well as the state police Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Culpeper Field Office.
