A 36-year-old man who was wanted out of Bedford, Campbell, and Amherst counties was arrested on Thursday, July 20, according to the Lynchburg Police Department.
Around 5:06 p.m., the Violent Crime Response Team (VCRT) responded to the parking lot of a store on Wards Road after getting a report that a wanted man was inside, authorities said.
When the man, 36-year-old Charles Johnson, walked out of the store, he was taken into custody, LPD said.
Police said LPD K9 Kairos assisted in the search of Johnson’s vehicle. We’re told K9 Kairos alerted his handler to the scent of narcotics inside, leading officers to find and seize the following:
- 9.5 ounces of Methamphetamine
- 1.3 ounces of heroin/powdered fentanyl
- 865 dollars
Johnson was arrested and is facing two counts of possession with intent to sell or distribute a Schedule I/II substance, authorities said. He is now being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail without bond.
