A guy in Winchester with convictions for dealing coke found a way to pay off his fines and court costs … dealing more coke, allegedly.
Eddy Quintana was convicted in 2007 of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and in 2008 of distribution of cocaine.
The Northern Virginia Daily reports that cops went to his girlfriend’s house in Winchester, and after getting permission to search the place, found a lockbox with cocaine and a gun in it.
A deputy testified at a hearing yesterday that Quintana admitted the drugs were his and that he said he “had been selling cocaine to get money to pay his fines and costs so he could get off probation.”
OK, so that plan didn’t work so well. Quintana now faces additional drug and weapons charges.
