2 facing multiple drug charges following alleged police pursuit

When law enforcement agents are investigating an area for drug activity, the actions of everyone nearby may be subject to increased suspicion. Should an individual attempt to evade a traffic stop during this process, belief of the presence of wrong-doing could be implied. Two individuals have been taken into custody and are facing multiple drug charges after allegedly leading police on a chase that they say ended with assault in North Carolina.

According to reports, the incident began when a detective was investigating information provided by an unknown source in relation to drug activity in the area. During this period, the detective claims to have come upon a suspicious vehicle and, after witnessing several traffic offenses, attempted to initiate a traffic stop. However, the detective claims that instead of complying, the driver began to flee, leading authorities on a short chase.

After catching up with and stopping the vehicle, authorities assert the individuals exited it and began fighting with three detectives, causing injuries in the process. According to police, after they were able to arrest both individuals, a subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered the presence of a substantial amount of methamphetamine and heroin. Both reportedly remain in custody and are facing numerous charges in relation to the incident.

Those who face drug charges of this nature might find it advisable to seek guidance before responding to allegations in any way. By speaking with a defense attorney, a client in North Carolina could obtain advice on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client, and if a conviction is unavoidable, assist in pursuing a lesser sentence during court proceedings.
