Cash and Guns Seized
Marijuana Plants Seized
A 34 year old Culpeper man is arrested after a massive drug bust this week.
Peter Gates apparently slams the door in the face of detectives when they arrive at his home this week. Officers later get a search warrant and seize 60 marijuana plants from the home, along with several ounces of packaged pot, cash, handguns and an assault rifle. Gates faces several drug and firearms charges. He has been released from the Culpeper County Jail on a $10,000 secured bond.
This is the second large drug bust in Culpeper in a week.
