Unfortunately, North Carolina has seen an increase in heroin charges in this state, and police officers are trying hard to arrest all those that they believe are involved in the heroin drug trafficking trade. On Oct. 5, the Dare County Narcotics Task Force arrested two men on heroin drug charges. The two North Carolina men have also been charged with other drug related infractions.
Once the police have a reason to search your car or home, pretty much anything they find is going to be fair game. Recently in North Carolina, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Dept. received a call complaining of the strong smell of marijuana coming out of an apartment on the 8400 block of Riverbirch Drive, according to a police news release. The police say that they obtained a search warrant and brought drug charges after searching the property.
In the Bladen County area of North Carolina, two men were arrested for drug charges after being pulled over by police. The vehicle caught the attention of police when a patrol officer noticed the expired tag, which then led to what the officer said was a "probable cause search" of the vehicle. There is no indication of what specifically caused the police to search the car after making the initial traffic stop. The drug charges are based on evidence that was supposedly found in the search.
In North Carolina over 30 men and women are facing drug charges that are spread over three criminal indictments and one criminal complaint.

North Carolina police in Cleveland County are looking for a man who is facing several drug charges. The drug charges follow a search of the man's home.

Many people have stories of things they did as a college student that they wish, in hindsight, they had not. However, only a small percentage of these actions end up with anything more than a bad case of regret. Occasionally, the impulsive and risk-taking actions of college students result in criminal charges. Unfortunately, pair of roommates - a male and female - at a North Carolina college fall in the group of college students who end up with criminal charges. Specifically, two Appalachia State University students returned from Spring Break only to realize they were just starting a fight against criminal drug charges.
One of the hazards of a person going to a hospital with suspicious injuries and sparse information is that it may bring the authorities into an investigation. Hospital authorities may possibly have a legal duty to report certain suspicious circumstances to the police. Recently, a man went to a North Carolina hospital for burn injuries and got more treatment than he wanted. He's now waiting for drug charges because hospital authorities called the police under circumstances that may or may not have been justified.
