An investigation into potential drug activity resulted in the arrests of two people. The arrests took place at a motel where police entered two separate rooms and found various drugs. The drugs found included marijuana, crack, methamphetamine and Ecstasy. A 39-year-old man was arrested on charges related to manufacturing/delivering a controlled substance. He also had two misdemeanor warrants. The other person arrested was a 20-year-old woman. She also faces charges related to manufacturing/delivering a controlled substance.
Allegations of drugs crimes are serious. Depending on how much drugs were present at the time of the arrest, the activities the people were allegedly taking part in, whether there were other violations in addition to the drug charges and other factors, there can be a lengthy jail sentence, fines and other penalties.
When charged with possession and sale of drugs, lodging an immediate and strong defense is vital. A lawyer who has experience in helping clients who have been charged with drug crimes is the first call they should make to begin planning for a defense.
