Loudoun County, VA (March 20, 2020) – Two South Riding men were arrested Thursday in connection with a 2-month investigation into the distribution of counterfeit Xanax. The investigation was conducted by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Enforcement Unit.
Adam F. Khan, 20, and Raheem Y. Khan, 19, are both charged with felony Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule IV Narcotic. A search warrant conducted yesterday at their residence on Center Street in South Riding recovered approximately 6,000 counterfeit Xanax pills, four firearms, and over $10,000 in cash.
