I just spoke with the Virginian-Pilot reporter covering the Shivers-Frederick drug raid story (the police station wasn’t accepting messages). He said there’s been no information since last night, and that the police aren’t talking at all. They won’t say if they found any drugs in Frederic’s home, or if they’ve even searched the garage where the informant alleges Frederick was growing a significant amount marijuana. They also won’t say if they knocked or announced before forcing entry.
It’s pretty troubling that several days after a raid that left a cop dead and for which a man is being charged with first-degree murder, the police department is bunkering down. They’re public servants, no?
UPDATE: Police say at 3:30pm this afternoon that they found marijuana in Frederick’s home. More here.
