Police: Woman arrested after cocaine worth $10K found
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia police say they’ve arrested a woman after finding nearly $10,000 worth of cocaine in an apartment.
The Virginia State Police issued a news release saying that 22-year-old Lanaja Jackson from Albemarle County in the Charlottesville area was charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute.
Investigators from a multi-agency task force were conducting an investigation this month at a home in the area when they encountered Jackson. While executing a search warrant, they found 94 grams of cocaine worth approximately $9,400, along with about $1,000 worth of marijuana, according to the news release. They say they also found an assault rifle.
Jackson didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment. No phone listing could be found.
