Drug Charges Archives

Traffic stop can result in drug charges

Seeing flashing red and blue lights in one's rear-view mirror can cause fear that can lead to a fight or flight reaction. In a recent incident in Louisiana such an incident may have caused a driver to flee and a police chase to ensue. The driver of the pursued vehicle and his passenger are now facing multiple charges, including drug charges.

Facing drug charges can be overwhelming

Police officers executing a warrant for one charge in Louisiana are within their rights to request a further warrant if they see evidence of an additional crime. A warrant was issued for the arrest of a man who was believed to be in violation of a protection order. Officers arrived at the man's home in Chalmette with a warrant for his arrest. Upon entering the home they claimed to see evidence in plain sight that supported bringing drug charges against the man as well.

Drug charges can overwhelm a suspect

The ongoing drug crisis remains a focus of law enforcement agencies in Louisiana. Ongoing investigations continue to generate warrants that lead to arrests and seizures of drugs and cash. One such investigation led to the execution of multiple warrants in the Baton Rouge area on a recent night. The suspects arrested as a result of the warrants face multiple drug charges.

The true story could affect the outcome of drug charges

The battle against illicit drug use rages on in Louisiana and around the country. Few days go by without a story on drug use showing up in media headlines. Another such story surfaced recently regarding the father of a teenager know to many in Louisiana as JJ. He's a fan of the New Orleans Saints and the LSU football team. He suffers from a rare liver disease and his father is facing drug charges.

A traffic stop aided by a K-9 unit leads to drug charges

Seeing flashing red and blue lights in one's rearview mirror is never a pleasant experience. It is advisable to pull over and comply with a Louisiana police officer's requests, which typically begin with a request for a driver's license and registration. A car was pulled over near Larose for improper lane usage. A search resulting from the stop ended with three people facing drug charges.

Drug charges need not leave a person feeling helpless

A new year has arrived but sadly many issues from the old year did not end with it. The drug problem in Louisiana continues to be a major problem. Police from Ouachita Parish are in search of a suspect who is wanted on drug charges as a result of a recent search.

Drug charges have long term ramifications

Law enforcement agencies in Louisiana continue to battle the drug crisis that is consuming so much of the nation. The crisis is a continuing one that shows little sign of abating as we end one year and begin another. The failure of one person to appear in court led to the arrest of three additional people who now face drug charges.

Important to know one's rights when facing drug charges

The battle against illegal drugs continues to rage in Louisiana. Law enforcement officers are working tirelessly to attempt to stem the tide of illegal drugs. Undercover investigations can result in arrests and drug charges. The people facing charges are entitled to a defense and are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.

Drug charges can have lasting ramifications

The drug crisis in the country and in Louisiana continues unabated. Trafficking in illegal drugs continues to be a major problem. However, it is important to remember that anyone who is arrested and charged with trafficking or possession is presumed innocent of drug charges until proven guilty by a court of law. This is a right that is enshrined in the United States Constitution.
