Police Charge Cole with Drug Offenses

Fairfax County police have charged a 35-year-old Centreville man with three narcotics offenses. He is Jennings Hobert Cole II of 14639 Stone Range Drive in the Sully Station community.

THE DETAILS of the criminal case against him were explained in a Sept. 14 affidavit for a search warrant to look for drugs, paraphernalia, records and documents in his home. However, Centre View is not revealing the name of the detective who obtained the alleged evidence against Cole because he was acting in an undercover capacity at the time.

According to the affidavit, during the month of April, this detective reportedly learned that Cole "is a current distributor of cocaine ... in and around the Chantilly area."

The detective noted that, in August and again in September, he purchased cocaine from Cole. According to the affidavit, Cole allegedly told the detective that he could get him a particular amount of cocaine, and then the two met at Cole's home — where the deal was reportedly consummated.

Afterward, say police, "The suspected cocaine [bought by the detective with Fairfax County "buy funds"] was field-tested and tested positive for cocaine."

Police executed the search warrant on Sept. 14 at 11:35 p.m. and seized baggies containing cocaine residue, drug paraphernalia, cash and records and documents.

The next day, Sept. 15, they charged Cole with three counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He is being held without bond in the Adult Detention Center and has a Nov. 15 court date.
