Report: Drugs, gun seized during Abingdon traffic stop


Two people remain in jail without bond following a traffic stop in Abingdon that resulted in drugs and a weapon being recovered.

Washington County Virginia Sheriff Fred Newman said Sheldon Bernard Gray, 47, of Lebanon, and Shannon Bingham, 39, of Abingdon are both facing a variety of charges after investigators searched their vehicle and found methamphetamine, marijuana, pieces of drug paraphernalia and a loaded .38-caliber pistol.

Gray was driving in the area of Jonesboro Road and Westwood Drive when a deputy initiated the stop because of loud exhaust, the report said.
