Fredericksburg police arrest three charged with drug trafficking


From the Fredericksburg Police:

On Saturday February 26, at approximately 11 p.m., a patrol officer carried out a traffic stop after seeing the driver of a Toyota Camry failing to stop for a red light at the intersection of Mall Court and Plank Road. The driver, identified as Nicole White, 38, of Stafford County, was found in possession of illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia. White was taken into custody and charged with possession of a Schedule I/II controlled substance and was held on bail at Rappahannock Regional Jail.

Around the same time, patrol officers arrived at the Super 8 Motel at 3002 Mall Court to serve outstanding warrants on two people. Officers made contact with Derek Toles, one of the wanted subjects staying at the hotel. During Toles’ arrest in his hotel room, officers saw narcotics in plain view and a second person in the room, later identified as Daran Horton. Horton and Toles were taken into custody without incident and a search warrant was executed. Several illegal substances were seized, including capsules containing white powder, suspected crack cocaine, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.

Daran Horton, 22, of Baltimore, Maryland was arrested on a fugitive from justice charge on a felony warrant. Horton remains incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bail.

Derek Toles, 35, of Locust Grove, Va., was arrested on three outstanding Stafford County warrants. Toles remains incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bail.

Additional charges for Horton and Toles are pending lab results.
