And before anyone wants to jump on me for asking this question on the Shady Forum, punch in the Damascus zip code-- 24236, and you will see that the two forums are one in the same. :)

I have known the Chief for years and can tell you for a fact that he is not gay. Why would you make this kind of comment and get that kind of junk started?

My daughter was best friends in school with Tony's sister, Amy. I have known Tony for many years-he is definitely a ladies' man, and a good guy. He's always ready to help.

Damascus Police Chief Anthony Stephen Richardson was arrested this afternoon on drug charges at the department, according to a Washington County Sheriff's Office news release.

Richardson, 40, was charged in connection with an undercover investigation that was initiated several months ago and involved drug purchases by a confidential informant. Richardson was charged with distribution of a Schedule II controlled substance -- methamphedamine, authorities said at an afternoon news conference.

Richardson was being booked into the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon.
Authorities said more charges are likely against Richardson and other people may also be charged, but declined to say if other police officers are involved.

The investigation was a joint effort of the Virginia State Police, the Sheriff's Office and the Abingdon Police Department. Federal agents of the FBI; Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; and the Drug Enforcement Administration are executing a search warrant.

I am so glad that they arrested Tony!!!!!
Selling drugs when your supposed to be getting them off the streets is horrible!!!!!
It is my understanding that he has several high class gal friends and "had" to sell drugs to support his horney habits.

Selling drugs while wearing a badge, uniform, and gun is FAR from imperfect!!!!! The man's job is to protect and serve the town of Damascus. I understand he was real good about pulling over vechicles , searching them, confinscating drugs and letting them go on a warning so he could keep the drugs and resell them. What a jack-@$$, I hope he pulls time.

Why don't you tell everyone where you live so we can erect an altar to your perfection. We can take turns washing your feet and maybe you can make water into wine (depending on where you are....wouldn't wanna be anything less than perfect and break the dry city law). Again, you are a perfect example of a bored, lonely old cow who can't do anything but pry into other peoples lives to add a bit of excitement to your own. Go on....out to pasture with ya!

They have drugs in Damascus? I have not been there in years, but sounds to have turned up the drama. I grew up in the valley. I thought drugs were a thing from big cities not Damascus.

Dear surrounded by idiots,
Your name says it all. Are you still with the department? If so, you should feel more anger than the rest of us for the shame that Mr. Richardson has brought on our town and your department. His actions are as indefensible as your comments.

It does not matter if you know Mr. Richardson or not. There would have never been any cuffs put on him if there had not been enough evidence. Matter of fact a person can be charged for something he/she has done some time back (an Indictment). Law enforcement officers take information and evidence to a judge adn panel of people who decide if there is enough to issue a warrant. The information can build up over time if they choose for it to. The best thing for people to remember is that if you don't want to spend time in jail then don't do anything that might come back and get you.

I will tell you what the sad thing is.... the only thing you all are doing is repeating the same tired, rude, thoughtless things over and over again. Did any of you ever stop to think that maybe this could be a mistake? That slandering someone who has not been proven guilty may not be the right thing to do? Have any of you ever seen it with your own eyes?? Stop to think for one minute, what if Tony RIchardson really is innocent?? You all have branded him for life! Think of his family, his kids? Would you want to read all this if this was someone in your family? Would you want people who you grew up with, and thought were your friends, to be saying things so hurtful and so unfair if it were your son or brother or father? Would you want to have to avoid the news and newspapers and peoples stares and scowls?? Wouldn't you want them to have a fair shot at justice? I REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO INNOCENT BEFORE PROVEN GUILTY???? They have no real evidence against him. Why do you think he isn't being arraigned for another month? They need time to scramble to find evidence because they don't have a case. But regardless, he is branded. I think if the people had their way, he would be crucified by the end of the work week. If you knew him, you would know that these accusations and rumors are ridiculous. He is a good man and he worked so hard to be a good cop, but no one will ever remember that. Have your opinions, but think of someone other than yourselves for once and keep them to yourselves! Have a little compassion.

Thanks "surrounded by idiots." It is nice to see that someone doesn't believe every bit of nonsense on the news and actually has a mind of their own.

You sure seem to know a lot there in Denver. Mr . Richardson came to Damascus with a public record of petty theft and obstruction of justice while a police officer in Chilhowie. He was arrested at the police dept with meth and pills in his pocket. The investigation took place over several months. The Co. Sheriff is a real upstanding guy, it pained him to arrest a fellow officer - he would not have not it without concrete evidence. Compassion? Think about what these drugs do.
