In Fredericksburg, a juvenile from Spotsylvania County faces multiple charges following a vehicular accident that led to the discovery of drugs and a firearm. On May 11th, just after 2:30 p.m., local authorities were alerted to an overturned vehicle in the 3000 block of Normandy Avenue. Upon arrival, Fredericksburg police conducted interviews with the driver, occupants, and witnesses, learning that the car had been speeding along Woodford Street before the driver lost control and crashed.

While none of the juvenile occupants required medical attention, the driver, also seventeen, received summonses for reckless driving and violating juvenile passenger restrictions. During the investigation, a witness reported seeing an occupant discard objects into the nearby woods. A subsequent search by a patrol officer, aided by a Stafford County Sheriff’s Office K9, uncovered a large bag of marijuana and an American Tactical AR pistol with a round chambered.

The juvenile, who witnesses identified as having thrown the items, now faces several charges, including possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, underage possession of marijuana and a firearm, obstruction of justice, and providing false identification to law enforcement.
