Drug charges for two Pinebluff, North Carolina residents

Two young people from the Pinebluff, North Carolina area are facing felony drug charges after a police raid of a private residence. Moore County police executed for a search warrant granted for a home and found a large amount of drugs, controlled prescription pills, and other drug related items. The two people living in the home were arrested and face felony drug charges.

The North Carolina police raid discovered a large amount of marijuana and Xanax pills. The pills are considered a controlled substance and illegally obtaining or distributing these pills is considered a crime and can result in drug charges. There was also an assortment of drug paraphernalia in the home.

The approximate street value of the drugs was around $4,200. The police also confiscated around $1,400 in the raid. After the raid, both residents of the home were charged with both felony drug charges and a few misdemeanors per person.

The felony drug charges include intent to sell or distribute, possession, and controlled substance charges. The misdemeanors include resisting address and illegal possession of drug paraphernalia. There is no word if the police have any evidence against the two young people besides what was reportedly found in the home.

Despite the amount of drugs that were purportedly found in the home, the accused individuals are entitled to the same presumption of innocence that protects everyone accused of a crime in North Carolina.. There must be an overwhelming amount of evidence presented against them to be declared guilty. The defendants have the right to build a criminal defense and present evidence for their own benefit. Moreover, they have the right to challenge the admissibility of evidence offered against them, as well as to confront witnesses for the prosecution in the courtroom.
