About a month or so ago, I was informed about an article in the Northern Virginia Daily about a drug smuggling bust that involved the proprietors and a few employees of Shag's Lumber in Edinburg. Also mentioned in the article were Judge William Logan of Shenandoah County, and several members of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Department.
When I say "involved", I mean that they were apparently part of the smuggling ring. This involved the Hollywood-esque technique of smuggling drugs in hollowed out logs.
Since that time, I've heard little to nothing about this. Searching the online newspaper archives has turned up little to nothing (which isn't surprising, given the lack of archiving that goes on with our local papers around here).
However, why the silence since the initial break of the story? Does anyone know exactly what happened then, and what has happened since? I would think this would be a huge story.
What makes this stranger is that the gentleman from Shag's Lumber has now twice refused bail and wants to remain in jail. Is he looking for protection? Is he providing information on important people? Was Logan involved? What was his involvement? I have questions and there's no answers to be found.
What's going on?
