Three facing drug charges after checkpoint stops in Georgia

Many individuals have been accused of criminal charges as the result of routine traffic stops. In similar situations, K-9 units often perform open-air searches in an attempt to detect if there are any drugs within the vehicle. According to police, a recently initiated driver's license checkpoint in Georgia resulted in multiple arrests for drug charges.

The arrests were made following two separate traffic stops at the checkpoint. Police claim that in both cases a K-9 unit indicated that drugs were present within vehicles. They allegedly found small baggies of methamphetamine along with a pipe in the first car, as well as several pipes and methamphetamine in the second vehicle. Three individuals were taken into custody and are facing criminal charges in relation to the event.

All three individuals are now accused of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Similar charges are severe in nature and can have a negative impact on a person's life. A conviction can affect a person in various ways and, in some cases, may involve time spent behind bars. Many individuals wish to avoid unnecessary consequences to their future, but they may be unsure how to proceed.

When facing drug charges, many people find it beneficial to seek assistance early in the process. Many people in Georgia choose to speak with an experienced attorney for assistance in forming a strategy for defense. A defense attorney can evaluate the situation, ensure that the person's rights were not violated in the search process, and advise him or her of the best course of action to take given the situation.
