Drugs, weapons seized from couple charged with Pr. William dealings

Twenty firearms, a ballistic vest, thousands of rounds of ammunition, cocaine and approximately $7,000 in cash were seized from the home of an Orange County man who had been selling drugs in Prince William, police said.

Gregory S. Ratliff, 30, of Hawks Nest Court in Locust Grove and his wife, Nicole Suzanne Ratliff, 28, have been charged in the case, according to Prince William police.

Police said they learned in early December that guns and cocaine were being sold in the county by a convicted felon. Undercover agents then made several purchases of cocaine and guns, including an AK-47 assault rifle, authorities said.

Gregory Ratliff, who was arrested Dec. 17, is being held without bond on charges of cocaine distribution, possession with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm while in possession of narcotics.

Police declined to say where he was being held.
