Vehicle Registration Stop Leads to Arrest in Medfield, Va.

Posted on Jun 28, 2011

When police pulled over 26-year-old Nathan Glenn Boddie of Norfolk for a revoked vehicle registration they didn't know that the stop would necessitate a drug dog and arrest.  However, once the Medfield police officer pulled Boddie over, he found that he was uninsured as well.  Then, reports Medfield Chief of Police Robert Meaney Jr., routine questions uncovered the presence of illegal prescription drugs.

"Since the vehicle is going to be towed, the officers usually ask the driver if anything dangerous or illegal will be found during the inventory search of the vehicle," stated Meaney.

Boddie was straightforward with police, telling them that a search of the vehicle would uncover drugs.  At this point a drug sniffing dog was brought in from the Ashland Police Department. 

Discovered in the car were some pills and an unidentified substance.  Boddie has been charged with possession of a Class B substance and drug distribution of a Class B substance.  The pills were said to be Oxycodone and Percocet.  Oxycodone and Percocet are considered schedule III drugs.

Boddie's bail was set at a total of $790.  The bail money was paid and Boddie was released the same day.  There was no word if the accused had retained the services of a criminal law attorney.
