Traffic stop leads to heroin charge for Boydton man

SoVaNow.com / March 08, 2017
A Boydton man was arrested and charged this week for possession of heroin.

On Friday, Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ramsey stopped Paul Arlin Tolliver, 31, as part of a routine traffic stop in Boydton. After determining that the car Tolliver was driving was improperly registered, Ramsey made arrangements to have the vehicle towed to the impound lot.

A search was conducted for the purpose of completing the “impound sheet,” an inventory of the car’s contents at time of the towing. During the search, Ramsey found a handgun and heroin concealed in the vehicle.

Tolliver was arrested, charged with possession of heroin and taken to Meherrin River Regional Jail. He was released on an unsecured bond. His pending court date is April 27.

In other reports, Sgt. Brent Evans is investigating a Sunday break-in at a residence in the 500 block of Bailey Drive in Chase City. According to the victim, he was gone from his home for about five hours, having left that morning around 9:30 a.m. When he returned at 2:30 p.m., he discovered several items were missing from the house, including a .32 caliber revolver, .38 caliber revolver, .25 caliber semi-auto pistol, money, and ammunition.

This case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office at (434) 738-6171.
