Man faces drug charges for alleged methamphetamine trafficking

A man was recently arrested in Lenoir under suspicion of trafficking drugs. The man was arrested in North Carolina after a routine traffic stop and a search of his vehicle. He faces two different felony drug charges for allegedly attempting to transport methamphetamine across the state.

An investigation into a reputed methamphetamine supplier in Lenoir and Caldwell counties had been underway for about six months. The investigation included efforts by local, state and federal agencies. The man was pulled over in his truck for a traffic stop on a recent Tuesday, but what led to the stop is unknown. Whether the man was a possible suspect in the investigation or if the traffic stop was simply due to a possible traffic violation is also not clear.

However, something during the traffic stop prompted the officer to search the man's vehicle. Inside, the officer allegedly found four ounces of crystal methamphetamine as well as a loaded pistol. The man was arrested for trafficking methamphetamine by transportation and trafficking methamphetamine by possession, both felonies. He was taken into custody at the Caldwell County Detention Center under a $100,000 bond. The investigation is still underway, and more arrests could be possible.

Regardless of whether the authorities suspect the man of being involved with their methamphetamine investigation, there are elements of the arrest that the man's North Carolina criminal defense will want to scrutinize. The defense team will want to examine any evidence that the prosecution may plan to use against the man. The defense team will also work to safeguard the man's legal rights as the proceedings for his drug charges move forward.
