Routine traffic stop in Georgia leads to drug charges and arrests

Law enforcement agents who make traffic stops in Georgia often claim to find evidence of criminal offenses during the process. Such appears to have been the case in a recent stop made in Fort Oglethorpe. The incident has led to drug charges against several people.

Police arrested three occupants of a vehicle after the routine traffic stop turned into an alleged drug bust. The men, ages 42, 34 and 28, now face various charges, including possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, oxycodone and morphine. Allegations of trafficking and possession with intent to distribute have also been asserted against them. One of the men was also cited for a vehicle tag light violation.

A sheriff's deputy who was called to the scene with a K-9 unit said he immediately sensed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Officers say a drawstring bag containing drugs was located under the floorboards of the vehicle during a search. They also claim to have found pills, a digital scale and other items commonly associated with drugs.

The three men were arrested and taken to a county jail. Two of the men were held on bonds of $25,000 each. The other man's bond was set $500 higher, at $25,500.  When facing serious drug charges in Georgia, a successful outcome often hinges upon experienced and aggressive criminal defense assistance. This type of support can be sought by requesting a meeting with a criminal attorney as soon as an arrest has been made or even before answering any questions during the investigation at the scene.
