Comments Off on Mother, three sons indicted on federal drug charges

HARRISONBURG — A mother and her three sons were indicted last week on federal drug charges that claim they illegally sold methamphetamine in the counties of Augusta, Rockbridge and Rockingham, federal authorities said Tuesday.

Nathan L. Conner, 29, of Waynesboro is charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine. His brothers, Anthony Conner, 27, and David Taylor Jr., 31, along with their mother, Camilla “Momma” Ramirez, 49, all of Buena Vista, were charged under the same indictment.

Taylor faces five additional counts of methamphetamine distribution. Ramirez is charged with two identical counts.

Nathan Conner and Anthony Conner, if convicted, could be given additional federal time because of past drug convictions.

Federal authorities said the meth-dealing operation began in 2004 and lasted six years, according to a press release.

The federal indictments were sealed last week and released Tuesday.

The investigation of the case was conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Rockbridge Regional Task Force, which is made up of officers from the Rockbridge County Sheriff’s Office, the Lexington Police Department and the Buena Vista Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Thomas Cullen is prosecuting the case.
