Two arrested for drug-related offenses

SoVaNow.com / December 20, 2012
The Halifax Regional Narcotic and Gang Task Force and South Boston Police officers has arrested two suspects on various drug-related charges.

On Dec. 6, George Chandler, 23, was arrested and charged with one count of distribution of cocaine, one count of conspiring to distribute cocaine and one count of distributing less than an ounce of marijuana.

Task Force officers received information that Chandler was hiding out in a residence located in the Woodlawn Park area and a search of the home there led to his arrest.

Shiqutta Renae Sanford was charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly attempting to conceal Chandler in the house.

Chandler is being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail under no bond.

Also with the assistance of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, Task Force and South Boston officers arrested Brian Lamar Tucker, 27, on Dec. 12 and charged him with one count of distribution of cocaine and one count of conspiring to distribute cocaine. More charges are likely to follow, according to police.

During a surveillance operation, Tucker was arrested when he was discovered to be a passenger in a vehicle that was followed and subsequently stopped. Tucker attempted to evade law enforcement officers by exiting the vehicle. He was, however, taken into custody without incident. He reportedly had suspected cocaine in his possession at the time of his arrest.

Tucker is being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail under no bond.
