Three people placed under arrest for drug charges

Drugs and the negative impact they have on people and society is a growing problem in Butler, throughout Pennsylvania and across the nation. Law enforcement officials make frequent arrests for drug offenses. Oftentimes, this is linked to manufacturing, distribution and trafficking. In many cases, however, people who are addicted to drugs are arrested as well. In some cases, there could be the potential to avoid the harshest legal consequences and provide treatment with a drug diversion program in lieu of punishment. Regardless of the circumstances in a case, those charged should be fully aware of their rights.

According to recent reports, a search of an apartment resulted in three people being placed under arrest for drug offenses. Law enforcement officials reportedly had a search warrant for the residence and executed it after 9 p.m. When they arrived, they found three people: a 46-year-old man, a 40-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man. In the apartment, law enforcement officials allegedly discovered drug paraphernalia, marijuana, crack, heroin and items to package drugs. Surveillance items and significant cash were also allegedly found. The people at the residence are facing felony charges.

The drug problem is perceived to be getting worse by the day in the U.S. With that, law enforcement officials and prosecutors are trying to address it by aggressively prosecuting those who are reported to be involved with illegal drugs. No matter the circumstances, it is essential for those who were arrested to know there may be available avenues of defense. If, for example, the search was conducted improperly, or if the person was involved in the case at a low level or if the evidence is insufficient to warrant a conviction, it may be possible to achieve a positive outcome.

While the allegations in this recent incident are serious, that does not mean convictions are automatic. To mount a viable defense, it is important for defendants to understand their options when it comes to drug charges.
