UPDATED: Another Alleged Drug Dealer Arrested

Gotta love that headline. From the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office: Another Alleged Drug Dealer Arrested:

Sheriff Tony Lippa wishes to express his gratitude to those who provided us information that allowed the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office to arrest another alleged drug dealer. “I truly appreciate the ongoing support of our community in assisting us in our continued efforts on the war against illegal drugs in Caroline County. Together we are making a difference.”

On 2-22-08 Caroline County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigators executed multiple drug related search warrants resulting in a seizure of $10,000.00 worth of crack cocaine. An investigation into Dupree Johnson, a 35 year old rap recording artist from Prince George County Maryland began six months ago. A search warrant was executed on a residence located at 6672-A Cedar Fork Road, Ruther Glen, VA., in Caroline County. As a result of this search warrant, the investigation branched out to neighboring Spotsylvania County. Two search warrants were executed in Spotsylvania County with the assistance of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics unit.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office had gained information during this investigation that Johnson traveled from Maryland to the Caroline County area for the purpose of distributing illegal drugs. Upon arresting Johnson, the Sheriff’s Office has stopped a flow of cocaine into Caroline County valued at approximately $10,000.00 per weekend.

Johnson has been charged with two counts of distribution of cocaine and one count of possession of cocaine and is being held without bond in Pamunkey Regional Jail. As this is an ongoing investigation, no further information is being released at this time.

UPDATE: According to online court records in Maryland, Dupree Theodore Johnson (DOB: 11/16/1972) has been charged previously for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to distribute a narcotic, and he currently had a warrant out for him for failure to appear on a charge of driving on a suspended license.
