THREE SEPARATE DRUG-RELATED CHARGES

Three people face drug related charges following separate investigations.

Randy Allen Caldwell, 46, Smithville, has been charged with possession of a legend drug without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use, driving on suspended license, possession of a schedule II drug, possession of a schedule IV drug and possession of a schedule V drug.

While on routine patrol, Gordonsville police officer David Petty got behind a Ford Explorer.
