WISE - A two-year investigation revolving around a drug subculture in Big Stone Gap has provided investigators in other states - including Tennessee - with leads on illicit drug suppliers to the tiny Wise County town, particularly significant amounts of cocaine.
On Tuesday, Wise County Commonwealth's Attorney Chad Dotson announced more than 100 felony indictments against 49 individuals in what the Southwest Virginia Drug Task Force dubbed "Operation Street Sweeper." As of 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, 30 of the 49 individuals indicted by a special grand jury had been taken into custody during a daylong roundup.
"Most of this is a cocaine ring," Dotson said, describing "loose-knit networks" of distributors and users mostly in Big Stone Gap, Appalachia and Norton.
The larger suppliers of "sometimes pounds and pounds ... and kilos" of cocaine were linked to sources in Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, New York and the Tidewater area of Virginia. During the 3,000-plus man-hours of investigation, the DTF itself purchased $14,000 of cocaine and some other drugs like OxyContin, heroin, morphine and marijuana.
Dotson said authorities in those states and section of Virginia are delighted with the results of "Operation Street Sweeper" and will likely have significant drug crackdowns of their own in the near future. Delighted to be assistance to those jurisdictions were Wise County prosecutors, the Virginia State Police, the police departments of Big Stone Gap and Norton, and the regional DTF.
Dotson said the undercover drug operation "made a big dent in the Wise County drug culture today" and "some serious (local) drug dealers are off the streets. The message from today is, you are being watched. If you're going to sell drugs in our community, we're going to come after you."
He said the probe "very quickly" became the largest and most expansive undercover operation ever conducted by the regional DTF.
Indictments served by 2:45 p.m. Tuesday include:
•Willie Hamler, 47, Big Stone Gap, three counts distributing cocaine.
•Gerald Davis, 42, Big Stone Gap, one count distributing Lortab (Schedule III prescription drug).
•Lamar McCoo, 23, one count distributing cocaine.
•Jacqueline Warfe, 32, Big Stone Gap, one count distributing cocaine, two counts distributing Lortab, two counts distributing cocaine and Ritalin, one count of conspiracy.
•Karen Elkins, 33, Appalachia, two counts distributing cocaine.
•Kenneth Johnson, 35, Appalachia, one count distributing cocaine.
•Stephanie Coward, 36, two counts distributing cocaine.
•Darrell Smith, 41, Big Stone Gap, two counts distributing cocaine.
•Albert Jake Neely, 47, Wise, one count distributing heroin.
•Melvin Noaks, 44, Norton, two counts distributing cocaine.
•Steven Harvey, 28, Coeburn, one count distributing cocaine.
•Tammy Marie McMahan, 35, Big Stone Gap, two counts distributing Schedule II drugs.
•Jonathan Funk, 19, Big Stone Gap, one count distributing cocaine.
•Michael Funk, 23, Big Stone Gap, three counts distributing cocaine and one count of conspiracy.
•Levitticus Smith, 45, Norton, one count of distributing cocaine.
•Frank Gravely Jr., 40, three counts distributing cocaine.
•Jeffrey Noaks, 40, Big Stone Gap, one count distributing cocaine.
•Lee Ann Fogarty, 43, Appalachia, one count distributing cocaine.
•Tatum Joi Anderson, 26, Big Stone Gap, three counts distributing cocaine.
•Matthew Taylor, 20, Big Stone Gap, three counts of distributing cocaine and Demerol.
Previous arrests were disclosed as: Sean Dowdy, 25, Virginia Beach; Donald Hennsey, 52, Big Stone Gap, possession of cocaine; Michael Mitchell, 40, Big Stone Gap, possession cocaine with intent to distribute; Enoch Singleton, 29, Greensboro, N.C., possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and armed trafficking of cocaine; and Christina Brown, 25, Greensboro, N.C., possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
They're getting all the wrong people.

1st of all, meth is used very little in this area despite what the cops think they know. everyone here is addicted to pain pills, which the doctors prescribe adamently. and if the cops and courthouse, actually cared about the problem and wanted to rehabilitate these drug addicts (who only sell drugs so they can afford to pay for their own habit)instead of just collecting their fines as our main source of revenues, they might actually be able to clean this place up. As it stands, its a very poor area, and the only way to pay for all the cops, commonwwealth's attornies, etc. is to charge everyone they can with drug charges and rake in the fines.

Putting people in jail for drug crimes does not create revenue, it eats up revenue.

If the cops were looking to raise money, they would be out on the highway writing speeding tickets to UVa Wise students and parents from NOVA
