[ARCHIVED] 03-02-2021 Operation Justice without Borders


Caswell County Sheriff’s Office and the Danville Police Department conducted a seven-month long drug trafficking investigation that led to multiple arrests along with the seizure of firearms and illegal narcotics.

Operation Justice without Borders was a joint operation lead by Danville Police Department and Caswell County Sheriff’s Office in response to the rise of opioid-related overdoses that we saw in the spring of 2020. The agencies identified multiple individuals responsible for trafficking illegal narcotics (specifically, heroin, fentanyl, and methamphetamine) across state jurisdictions. 

The purpose of this operation was to allocate resources and facilitate information sharing between multiple agencies to address violent crime and the victimization of those suffering from addiction. The agencies focused on those who were profiting from illegal narcotics and firearm trafficking.

The operation concluded in February and the summary stands as follows:

    Combined total controlled purchase operations – 46

    Total number of individuals charged – 12

    Total number of indictments – 72

    Narcotics seized:

                          Heroin         Cocaine/Crack        Marijuana          

                          Fentanyl    Methamphetamine      Prescription Narcotics 

    Total Weight (Grams): 3869.5

    Approximate Street Value: $126,187.00

    Firearms seized – 7

Investigations that stemmed from this operation remain active and ongoing. 

Several other agencies supported this operation to include the Virginia State Police, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This endeavor is another example of our commitment to combat the trafficking of narcotics and reduce violent crime while offering help to those who are suffering from drug addiction. 

Individual arrest data will be available in the weekly report found on our website and upon request. Anyone who may have information on these cases can contact us at 434-793-0000 or use our crime tips app CARE at
