DeKalb County residents accused of making methamphetamine

Two people from DeKalb County, Georgia, were arrested recently for allegedly cooking methamphetamine in a hotel room. The arrest came a few days after the husband of one of the two was caught making the highly addictive drug in a nearby motel. The pair -- a 25-year-old man and 24-year-old woman -- now face drug charges as well as conspiracy charges.

According to court records, police checked the hotel room after a concerned citizen reportedly found drug-making materials in a trash bin. Police found a methamphetamine laboratory in the room. Allegedly, the man arrested most recently had been given half a gram of methamphetamine in exchange for buying over-the-counter medications for the other man. The medications are one of the ingredients used in the street production of the drug.

The two have been charged with multiple felonies. If convicted, they would face a minimum of 6 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years. A $100,000 bond has been set for each.

This case is a classic example of the struggles those charged with drug offenses will face in Georgia. Besides the cost of a bond required to gain temporary freedom, a person's reputation also faces irreparable damage.

To increase the chances that a Georgia resident is not convicted of drug allegations, it is in their best interests to mount an aggressive defense. This could mean careful scrutiny of all evidence, thorough questioning of witness and detailed challenges to arrest procedures as well as the validity of any arrest warrant. Experienced legal guidance can help the accused establish such a defense.
