Waynesboro woman charged with dealing meth from home

Kerouac Cary JulietteThe Waynesboro Police Department arrested a city woman earlier this week for dealing methamphetamine from her residence.

Cary Juliette Kerouac, 29 years old, faces one felony count of Distribution of a Schedule I or II drug.  This is Kerouac’s third drug arrest in the last six months.

On June 7, 2016 at 10:00 AM, members of the Waynesboro Police Department, Augusta County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police raided Kerouac’s residence at 830 Pine Avenue.  In addition to methamphetamine, officers found packaging material, scales, and cutting agents during the search of the home.  These items are indicative of a distribution operation.

This action was the result of an ongoing narcotics investigation targeting Kerouac whose home had been used for the sale and use of illicit drugs, mostly methamphetamine.  Although the house had been raided before, the illegal activity continued.  Since the last raid three weeks ago, the Police Department fielded additional complaints about excessive vehicle traffic coming and going from the residence.  Officers from the Patrol Division conducted two nights of surveillance and witnessed several vehicles coming to the residence and leaving minutes after arriving; known drug users entering the residence; a hand to hand drug transaction on Pine Avenue between two men who came from the house.

Kerouac faces felony possession of a methamphetamine charges from raids at her home on December 3, 2015 and May 20, 2016.

She is being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.
