Being charged with a criminal offense can be a serious situation. Drug crimes are a common cause of arrests in Minnesota and across the country. One man is now facing felony charges after police recently searched his home and allegedly found illegal drugs.
It is currently unclear what prompted authorities to perform the search of the man’s home. Upon arrival, police claim that they discovered several thousand dollars in cash and a significant amount of drugs in the home. Over 100 grams of heroin was allegedly found, as well as 65 grams of marijuana, 200 prescription pills and common drug paraphernalia.
The man and his mother, who was in the house when the search was conducted, were both arrested. His mother has yet to be charged with any offenses. The man has since been charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin. It is currently unknown whether he will be charged with any additional violations.
Felony drug charges can lead to severe consequences when convictions are obtained. Anyone accused of similar drug crimes would likely benefit from consulting an experienced Minnesota criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to determine the best course of action to dispute such charges. An attorney could assist a client by helping him or her better understand the charges at hand as well as by assisting in building a strong defense to present before the court. In doing so, an attorney could work toward achieving the best possible outcome for anyone accused of such crimes.
