A West Virginia woman who asked a Loudoun deputy for directions faces a charge of dealing drugs as a result.
According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Lisa M. Polk, 56, of Capon Bridge, WV, was driving on Rt. 7 near Round Hill on March 22 when she came across deputies directing traffic around a downed power line. She asked for directions from a deputy who suspected she was under the influence of alcohol.
A search of the vehicle turned up not only an open container of alcohol in the vehicle, but also several suitcases containing 6 pounds of marijuana, 200 grams of THC oil and more than $1,500 in cash along with packaging materials, anti-scent bags, rolling papers and other narcotics-related paraphernalia.
Polk was charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and public intoxication. She was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a secured bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 17 in Loudoun County District Court.
