VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – After informants alerted the DEA of drug activity in the Lake Shore Community, officials arrested a man they believe was making and selling methamphetamine.

That man, George Lane, was federally charged with conspiracy to manufacture and sell drugs. Lane faced a judge Friday for a detention hearing.

According to court documents a drug raid of Lane’s Oak Leaf Lane home recovered 28 grams of meth, 20 grams of cocaine, 1.6 pounds of marijuana, various amounts of steroids and other drugs. Police also found 13 guns and some ammunition. Thousands of dollars in cash was seized from the home.

The preliminary and detention hearings were continued and Lane was taken back to Western Tidewater Regional Jail.
