CAROLINE COUNTY, Va. — A Woodford, Virginia man was arrested as the result of an undercover heroin distribution investigation by the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office.

Justin Parker, 29, was charged with distribution of heroin, possessing heroin with the intent to distribute, and possession of marijuana, according to the sheriff’s office.

Parker was arrested after deputies searched his Villeboro Road home last week.

“Investigators conducted several undercover purchases of heroin from a suspected heroin dealer living in the residence, which led to a search warrant being issued for the home,” a Caroline Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said. “During the search of the home, investigators reported seizing heroin with a street value of $16,000.00, digital weight scales, a small amount of marijuana, a money ledger, various smoking devices, ammunition, and other paraphernalia.”

Parker was being held at the Pamunkey Regional Jail without bond.
