A Spotsylvania County Child Protective Services worker and two family members face drug charges in Westmoreland County.

According to Westmoreland Sheriff C.O. Balderson, a search warrant was executed July 25 at a home in the 100 block of Stratford Circle in Colonial Beach.

Investigators reported seizing prescription drug pills, drug paraphernalia, a firearm and an undisclosed amount of cash, Balderson said.

Upon further investigation, three Colonial Beach residents were charged this week.

Sherry Heslop-Dazy, 48, who works as a child protective services worker in Spotsylvania, was arrested Tuesday and charged with distribution of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm while possessing a controlled substance and conspiring to distribute a controlled substance.

Her husband, 42-year-old Kenneth R. Dazy, is charged with two counts of distributing a controlled substance, conspiring to distribute a controlled substance, possession of a firearm while possessing a controlled substance and possession of a firearm while being a convicted felon.

The couple's son-in-law, William J. Whitlock, 33, is also charged with possession of a controlled substance.

All three are being held without bond at the Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw.

Kenneth Dazy was already incarcerated on unrelated charges prior to these charges, Balderson said.

"Having the capability to use technology in order to monitor communication enabled us to not only further our investigation, but to obtain several indictments and arrest these individuals," Balderson said.

Sherry Dazy and Whitlock will appear in Westmoreland Circuit Court on Friday. Kenneth Dazy will make his next appearance on Monday.
