More drug charges filed in the ongoing battle

Law enforcement officers continue to fight the drug crisis in Louisiana. A recent bust in northeast Louisiana, in West Carroll Parish, is a new installment in that effort. Two men were arrested in the bust on suspicion of dealing illegal substances and face multiple charges, including drug charges.

Arrest leads to indictment on drug charges

The drug problem in Louisiana continues to run rampant. In an effort to stem the tide the authorities may be stepping up the effort to bring those involved in distribution to justice. While this is a noble endeavor, anyone facing drug charges is entitled to a criminal defense. A person who has been indicted is presumed innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty in court and beyond a reasonable doubt.

Grand jury investigation leads to arrests on drug charges

Before a drug arrest is made in Louisiana, there may be a lot of work done behind the scenes before the arrest is carried out. This may include gathering evidence and conducting lengthy observation of any alleged illegal activity. When police officers believe they have sufficient evidence, drug charges may then be brought against a suspect or suspects. Being charged with a crime can be very scary and intimidating. Anyone so charged is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Another overdose death leads to drug charges

The opioid crisis and resulting overdose deaths continue to plague our society and the state of Louisiana. When a tragic death occurs that appears to be the result of a drug overdose, family and loved ones may search for a culprit on whom to blame the death of their loved one. Such a search can lead to drug charges.

Months long investigation leads to multiple drug charges

When a investigation over the course of a number of months leads to an arrest, those being charged with a crime may be confused and unsure of what to do. When an arrest leads to drug charges in Louisiana, the person may also be scared. The officer making the arrest is doing his or her job. Once a person is charged, he or she may benefit from legal counsel.

Drug charges follow after alleged undercover investigation

There are times when one can be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Regardless if the individual is not involved in illegal activity, often he or she can be assumed guilty just by association. Recently, six people were arrested in Louisiana after what authorities say was a month-long undercover narcotics investigation.  At least two of the six arrested are now facing drug charges.

3 men in Louisiana face drug charges after paying bill

There are many people in Louisiana who want to ensure that their financial obligations are met. For most, this includes paying their bills. Unfortunately, a trip to pay a bill ultimately resulted in an arrest in Louisiana recently. The three people arrested now face drug charges.

Louisiana traffic stop leads to drug charges

When faced with an authority figure, it is often second nature to acquiesce to a request. However, when a person is pulled over by a police officer, it may be in their best interest to decline permission to conduct a search without a warrant, for example. Unfortunately, a traffic stop in Louisiana has recently resulted in drug charges.

Man faces drug charges after passing out in car in Louisiana

Many people in Louisiana have little experience with the criminal justice system. As a result, they may be unaware of the necessary actions that must be taken if charged with a crime. For example, a young man who now faces drug charges may be unsure how to respond to the accusations against him.
