JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. — James City County police asked the public for help in finding a man wanted on federal drug charges. He was arrested and taken into custody on Sunday.

A Federal Arrest Warrant from the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Virginia was out for the arrest of 36-year-old Tiante Sanchez Woodley.

Woodley was wanted for distributing and possession with intent to distribute cocaine base. The charges are connected to an incident that happened in James City County that is being prosecuted in federal court.

The investigation led agents with the Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force to the 2000 block of Booker Street in Gloucester County. Agents secured a search warrant for the residence from a magistrate, and the Sheriff’s Office SOU executed the search warrant.

Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Operation Unit was used in the execution of the search and arrest warrants because of the defendant’s criminal history and current federal charges. There were also concerns about the possibility of him being armed at the time of his arrest. 

Woodley was found inside the residence during the execution of the search warrant, and he was arrested without incident.

Deputies said Tiante Woodley was then turned over to the United States Marshall’s Service for processing.
