Remington man arrested on marijuana, gun charges

Culpeper County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Remington man Monday and charged him with possession of marijuana and unlawful possession or use of a sawed off shotgun.

Deputies searched the home of Jeremy A. Engh, 41, on Saturday, after a male juvenile indicated that he had obtained marijuana from Engh’s house, according to a press release. Cpl. C.T. Hibbs of the CCSO reportedly spoke with the juvenile earlier in the day during a traffic stop.
During the search deputies found a sawed-off shotgun and marijuana residue in Engh’s home.

Engh, who has been the wrestling coach at Culpeper Middle School, for eight years, was released on his own recognizance.

The website for Lakota Ranch in the 9200 block of Bighorn Road in Remington – lakotareddevons.com – lists home and cell phone numbers for a Jeremy Engh. Corey Byers, CCSO public information officer, confirmed that the house searched was in the 9000 block of Bighorn Road.

Culpeper Times called the cell number listed and a man identifying himself as Engh said he was the one whom Culpeper deputies charged.
Engh said that Warrenton attorney Chris Whelan is representing him and he has been advised not to talk about the charges. He did, however, make the following comment:

“I want to send my thanks to the large portion of the community who have supported me and know what kind of man I am,” Engh told Culpeper Times Wednesday morning.

Dr. Bobbi Johnson, Culpeper County Schools superintendent, said Wednesday afternoon that Engh will not be coaching at CMS the rest of the year and that a determination would be made at the end of the year as to his status.
