A Williamsburg man and his wife are facing serious allegations in connection with a drug investigation that also netted the pair child abuse and neglect charges.

The child abuse and neglect charges (two felony counts) were lodged against Daniel and Anastasia Antonovna Todororic, both 31, Thursday. Williamsburg Police said those charges stemmed from a search warrant authorities executed at the couple’s home in the 200 block of Patriot Lane on Jan. 31.

“The search warrant yielded one pound of marijuana, three and a half ounces of marijuana wax, prescription pills including opioids, various other drug evidence, and unknown substances,” according to a Feb. 14 news release from the Williamsburg Police Department. “The evidence was discovered throughout the home and within the reach of the Todorovic’s two children.”

“The new charges were obtained in conjunction with a City of Williamsburg Child Protective Services investigation,” according to the news release.

Daniel Todorovic is being held without bond at Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, officials said.

Anastasia Todorovic was released on her own recognizance, said police spokesman John Heilman.

Daniel Todorovic, was previously arrested on Jan. 31 and charged with one felony count of possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance with the intent to distribute and one felony count of possession with the intent to distribute more than one-half, but less than five pounds of marijuana, police said.

Anastasia Todorovic also have the same charges, police said.

Police said the investigation remains open and are asking anyone with information about this case to contact the Peninsula Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or call the Williamsburg Police Criminal Investigations Bureau at 757-220-2331.
