Alleged gang member arrested for drug possession in Pennsylvania

A 24-year-old man who is believed to be a member of the Bloods was arrested recently after police found large amounts of cocaine, heroin and crack in his vehicle, along with $6,000 in cash and two cell phones. Court papers claim that he was about to do a drug deal at the time police searched his vehicle. He is now in a Pennsylvania jail on multiple charges of drug possession.

Pennsylvania men facing drug charges

Pennsylvania residents may notice the amount of drug charges that are published in the different media outlets. Although it can be easy to quickly judge a situation or circumstance based on just a few facts, the accused is entitled to their day in court to present their case. A recent arrest has left three men each facing drug charges.

Pennsylvania man faces drug charges for role in meth lab

Crystal Meth is one of the most dangerous drugs on the black market today. With the highly toxic chemicals that are used to manufacture it along with the risk of the mixture exploding, law enforcement have handed down heavy penalties for those convicted of a making the drug. However, the mere fact that someone faces drug charges for allegedly manufacturing meth, does not always equate to guilt. This fact makes the Pennsylvania criminal justice system that much more important to ensure those who are facing serious consequences are properly treated.

Pennsylvania traffic stop results in weapons, drug charges

It is often human nature to make assumptions. Some assumptions, sometimes based on facts, are more likely than others. However, these assumptions, while they may seem to be true, are not actually reality. In many cases, people can be accused of crimes based on this. One woman in Pennsylvania now faces drug charges after a traffic stop led to the search of a house.

Drug charges can result from purchase of synthetic marijuana

Until 2011, smoke shops could be found throughout Pennsylvania, which legally sold synthetic marijuana and 'bath salts.' These substances attempt to mimic the effects of marijuana, cocaine, LSD and methamphetamines. They have now been added to the list of controlled substances. If caught with synthetic marijuana or 'bath salts' one can face serious drug charges.

Texting tip line to prevent Pennsylvania drug possession

With the rapidly growing field of technology, it only makes sense that we use technology for the greater good. Police officers have technological equipment that they can use in the pursuit of justice. However, now citizens of Pennsylvania can use their technologies to assist officers in fighting crime. The DEA has initiated a counter attack on the rapidly growing crime of prescription drug use by setting up a texting line for anonymous tips when someone is in drug possession of prescription painkillers.

Pennsylvania man facing drug charges after traffic stop

Every time a police officer conducts a motor vehicle stop they are trained to perform certain tasks in order to learn as much about the vehicle's occupants as possible. With the vast databases at Pennsylvania officer's fingertips, they can often bring up large amounts of information in a matter of seconds, which can result in them taking an individual into custody. When this happens, police will often search the vehicle, which in some cases can result in the individual arrested facing drug charges if the search reveals the presence of illegal narcotics. Police stopped a vehicle on an Interstate highway for an unknown reason and came in contact with a 36-year-old man. Police stated that initially the man gave them a false name. However, the man later is said to have admitted to his true identity, which revealed that that the man had out-of-state warrants issued for his arrest.

Pennsylvania officer caught up in drug charges could be innocent

It seems as though society can't read a paper or watch the news without hearing about a story related to drug charges. When a person thinks of drug charges, more than likely they think of a police officer making the arrest, not being involved in the charges. A recent story involving a Pennsylvania police officer has proven otherwise.

Grandfather and grandson duo arrested for drug charges

Once again we find the specter of a very close family relationship supported by an allegedly intensive pattern of serious criminal activities. That seems to be true in Pennsylvania for a 73-year-old man and his 20-year-old grandson who lived together in their Pittsburgh home, and may have also been sharing hard drugs together. Police raided their home recently after a three-month investigation. They arrested both men on drug charges.

Top state law enforcer wants crime unit for more drug charges

In a press conference with all the bells and whistles, the Attorney General of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, announced her quest for public funds for a mobile street crime unit to chase gangs from the state. The unit would have 20 employees go into a selected gang area and wipe out gang crime, while cutting off their drug supplies. This would mean a slew of drug charges in the selected Pennsylvania community.
