Five Halifax County men face drug charges

Five Halifax County residents have been served indictments on drug charges, according to Virginia State Police Special Agent Mark Campbell, coordinator of the Halifax/South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force.

On Monday task force members served indictments on 28-year-old Bradshaw Woody of South Boston, 45-year-old Joe B. Allred of Scottsburg and 22-year-old Raymond E. Moten of South Boston.

Campbell said Woody was arrested on three counts of distributing cocaine, one count of conspiring to distribute cocaine and two counts of gang participation.

Deputy J. P. Adams transported Woody to the magistrate’s office at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail where he was held on no bond, Campbell said.

Allred was arrested on one count of distributing a Schedule II Controlled Substance, and Deputy Adams transported him to the magistrate’s office where he was released on a $3,500 secured bond, Campbell said.

Moten was arrested on four counts of distributing cocaine, and South Boston Police Officer M. W. Bowen transported Moten to the magistrate’s office where he was released on $7,500 secured bond.

On Wednesday task force members served indictments on 47-year-old Wayne D. Reese Jr. and 60-year-old Glenn M. Francis, both of Nathalie, Campbell said.

Reese was arrested on one count of manufacturing marijuana, and Deputy S. Edmonds transported Reese to the magistrate’s office where he was given a $3,500 secured bond, the task force coordinator said.

Francis was arrested on one count of manufacturing marijuana, and Deputy T. B. Sargent transported him to the magistrate’s office where he was given a $5,000 secured bond, according to Campbell.

“The Halifax / South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force would like to thank the citizens of Halifax County, the Town of Halifax, Town of South Boston and the respective communities for their invaluable assistance in these matters,” Campbell said.
