AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — Officials say a Charlottesville man is facing multiple charges following an arrest operation that happened on January 20 in Waynesboro.
According to a press release from the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office, Ty Quane Pertell Gregory, 24, has been charged with two felony counts of distribution of a Schedule I/II controlled substance, one felony count of assault on a law enforcement officer, one felony count of displaying a firearm while in possession of a Schedule I/II controlled substance, one felony count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one felony count of eluding police.
Officials say on the evening of Jan. 20, the Skyline Drug Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Service were conducting a narcotics investigation involving Gregory, when investigators attempted to stop Gregorgy in a parking lot of an apartment complex in Waynesboro.
