Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office will host a Winter 2015 session of the Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy from January 10th to 31st. The four-week course is set in the classroom and in the field, where Deputies lead students through Sheriff’s Office operations, including patrol, dispatch, jail, courthouse, and special operations, investigations, active shooter and work place violence, and more.

Carolyn A. Cubbage, age 65, of the 100 block of Wayland Road in Culpeper. She was charged with two felony counts of Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine.

Mr. and Mrs. Cubbage were arrested at their residence located on the 100 block of Wayland Road Wednesday night without incident, while Mr. Chuc-Canul was arrested at the intersection of Main Street and Evans Street during a vehicle stop.

“The investigation was a result of numerous cocaine transactions over the past three months. However, this investigation has been on-going for over a year” states Lieutenant Tim Chilton.
When Mr. Chuc-Canul was arrested cocaine was seized with a street value of $1000 that was just purchased from Mr. Cubbage under police observation. Also, over a $1,000 in currency was seized from his person during the arrest.

When Mr. and Mrs. Cubbage were arrested at their residence, officers seized over $3000 in currency, a numerous amount of firearms, a 2010 Buick 4-door sedan, and a 2013 EZ-Go Golf Cart.
During this investigation, police have determined the Buick 4-door sedan was purchased by proceeds of cocaine transactions over the course of years and the EZ-Go Golf Cart was used during the commission of cocaine sales. Officers do not believe any of the firearms have been used during the commission of any of the cocaine transactions, however due to the nature of the offenses the guns were seized.

Mr. Cubbage and Mr. Chuc-Canul were held without bond at the Culpeper County Jail, while Mrs. Cubbage was held until a $3,000 bond was made.

“This is another prime example of law enforcement working countless man hours together as a team to rid our streets of drugs and weapons” states Chief Chris Jenkins.

This investigation is on-going as more charges are pending as well as the possibility of more property seizures. If anyone has any information about this investigation are encourage to call Lieutenant Tim Chilton of the Culpeper Police Department at (540) 829-5568.
