The search took place the night of his arrest.

Lederman is facing drug charges and is suspended from the attorney general's office following his arrest last Thursday.

An informant told police Lederman was buying marijuana from Washington and distributing it from his home on Redgate Avenue.

He posted bond and is out of jail.

At his home Wednesday, Lederman declined to comment about his pending charges and ignored all of our questions.

He's due in court on March 9 for a counsel determination hearing, according to the online courts Website.

The Williamsburg Commonwealth's Attorney office will be handling the case as a special prosecution, Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney spokeswoman Amanda Howie told WVEC.com.
