Drug Charges Archives

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.

Drug charges brought against 3 young men in Chalmette

Three men from Chalmette are facing criminal charges in Louisiana for drug and weapons possession. They were recently arrested for drug charges, including intent to distribute marijuana. The arrests occurred following a lengthy undercover investigation. The investigation focused on a house on Golden Drive.

Fleeing the scene should not imply guilt in face of drug charges

Two men from New Orleans were recently arrested and are facing multiple charges in Louisiana. The arrest started with the report of a suspected road rage incident on the North Shore. The St. Tammany Parrish Sheriff's office responded to the call, and the suspects are facing multiple drug charges and a weapons charge.

Drug charges and drag racing don't mix well

Drag racing is never a good idea. When drag racing is combined with drug use the potential for a tragic accident rises dramatically. This was the case in a recent fatality resulting from a drag race in the New Orleans area. In addition to vehicular homicide, a young man is also facing Louisiana drug charges.

Faced with drug charges, knowing one's rights is vital

The battle against the opioid epidemic and other illegal drugs continues in Louisiana. A man was arrested in New Orleans following a police chase. The man pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including drug charges, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Five arrested on drug charges following high speed chase

The drug problem continues to be an issue in Louisiana. Drug charges were brought against five people in St. Tammany Parrish recently.

Upon seeing the officers, a person at the residence reportedly got into a car and took off at a high rate of speed.
