GRAYSON COUNTY, Va. — Authorities arrested two men this week after finding stockpiles of illegal substances at an Elk Creek, Va., home, according to the Galax Gazette.

On July 9, a Grayson County deputy encountered a “suspicious individual” at a service station on U.S. 21. The individual was identified as Adam James Woods, 28, of Troutdale.

“Woods appeared very nervous, so [the deputy] asked him for consent to search his backpack and Woods agreed,” the Gazette reported, citing a police report.

During the search, the deputy discovered a container full of methamphetamine. Woods was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine.

Following an investigation, authorities obtained a search warrant for the property of Oscar Ray Thomas, 64, of 7773 Elk Creek Parkway, Elk Creek.

Upon searching Thomas’ home on July 10, authorities found numerous packages of methamphetamine, marijuana, and prescription pills, untaxed liquor and a firearm.

Thomas was charged with felony possession with intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance, felony possession with intent to distribute more than a half ounce of marijuana, felony possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance while in possession of a firearm, felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, misdemeanor possession of a schedule IV controlled substance without a prescription and misdemeanor possession of a schedule III controlled substance without a prescription.

Thomas and Woods were placed in the New River Valley Regional Jail under no bond.
