Loudoun County Sheriff's Office officials announced today that a nearly three-month investigation conducted by the LCSO Tactical Enforcement Unit has resulted in the seizure of marijuana, cocaine and two firearms, and one suspect is in custody on multiple felony charges.

On Thursday, the LCSO conducted a search warrant at a residence located in the 46900 block of Shady Point Square in Sterling, according to LCSO officials. Recovered from the apartment was one-fourth pound of marijuana, approximately 3.5 grams of cocaine, $17,415 in cash and two handguns. One of the firearms was reported stolen from another jurisdiction.

Before the execution of the search warrant, the suspect, Lavonte L. Masunda, 32, was apprehended during a traffic stop in the area of Church Road and Cascades Parkway without incident. Masunda was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a stolen firearm, four counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of cocaine.

Masunda remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

Residents can report possible narcotics activity by contacting the LCSO's Narcotics HOTline at 1-833-HOT-TIPS (1-833-468-8477).


Don’t worry, Gun Control will be a top priority by our Governor during this legislative session. Wow, I feel so much safer bec the Liberals are in control

So why would one need to carry concealed in Loudoun you ask? This is just one of many reasons. the others are Islamic State sympathizers in Loudoun, illegal Aliens who murder young girls, and now armed cocaine dealers on Church Road.
