Richardsville man faces drug charges

A loud noise complaint in Richardsville Saturday night led to the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office arresting a Richardsville man on drug charges.

On April 21, at approximately 11:30 p.m., CCSO Deputy Brek Charapich responded to Beethoven Boulevard in Richardsville for a loud noise complaint. Deputy Charapich located a large party that included camping, food and beer vendors, and “six live bands each evening” of a two night event- according to “Big Papa Productions” owner. While attempting to make contact with the landowner, Deputy Charapich observed multiple people coming and going from a particular camper on site and observed a strong smell of marijuana being emitted from the area of the camper. Deputy Charapich attempted to make contact with the occupant(s) of the camper, and as additional Sheriff’s units arrived on scene, they continued to try to make contact with the occupant(s) of the camper. A search warrant was obtained. The registered owner of the trailer, Jeffery Fairman, exited the trailer just prior to Deputies making entry.

The search warrant was executed at 1:52 a.m. and numerous items of drug paraphernalia were located along with bags containing a large amount of suspected marijuana, marijuana brownies, and Psilocybin mushrooms.

Jeffrey Fairman, of Richardsville, was placed under arrest and charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a Schedule 1 drug for the Psilocybin mushrooms, and Conspiracy to Violate the Drug Control Act. Fairman is being held in the Culpeper County Jail without bond. Three warrants with the same charges were also issued for Lisa Fairman who fled the scene on foot shortly after deputies arrived. Additional charges are pending for the event organizer for holding a festival without a permit.

“Deputy Charapich and her patrol squad continue their aggressive enforcement on drugs and DUI in Culpeper. Saturday night was another example of her great detection and investigation ability with narcotics,” said Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins. “Thank you to the entire patrol squad for working together for hours to complete the investigation. Great work!”
