Many people reported seeing helicopters flying low in Nelson County late last month. The choppers were part of an annual eradication program involving The VA State Alcohol Beverage Commission, State Police and The Nelson County Sheriff’s Department. One of the largest finds by lawmen was on August 24th in Tyro, Virginia. “We found over a hundred plants there in addition to several gallons illegal alcohol,” says Nelson County, VA Sheriff, David Brooks. Sheriff Brooks says Darrell Ramsey of Tyro has been charged with 3 different violations, all felonies. Two involving the growing and distribution of marijuana, another involving a firearm.

Sheriff Brooks says the eradication program is held each summer to find and destroy marijuana being grown primarily in overgrown remote areas of the county.

    Tyro is in the western quadrant of Nelson!

    Thanks Eve, yes it is western, technically SW corner of Nelson if we want to be exact. We were speaking in generalities and would consider Tyro south of say Nellysford, or Afton.
