2 facing drug charges following search of van in North Carolina

Many individuals have been accused of drug-related crimes following the search of a vehicle. Those who experience a similar situation may wish to protect themselves against the potential consequences of a conviction for drug charges, but the process can be complex. A mother and son have recently been taken into custody and are facing similar charges following the search of a van in North Carolina.

According to authorities, the incident took place on a recent Thursday as officers within a drug unit were conducting surveillance in a local parking lot. During this period, authorities claim to have witnesses suspicious activity within a van that was parked in a nearby space. Upon initiating a search of the vehicle, they claim to have uncovered the presence of various types and amounts of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

The nature of the activity that caused authorities to become suspicious of wrongdoing is unclear. Both individuals in the van were taken into custody soon thereafter. The mother was subsequently charged with possession of heroin and her son was charged with possession of methamphetamine. With the potential gravity of a conviction, those who face similar charges may find it advisable to seek guidance in the initial stages of the process.

Individuals who face drug charges may benefit from speaking with an attorney for guidance on how best to approach the situation. A defense attorney can thoroughly evaluate the charges and evidence against a client and assist in forming a strong defense. If a conviction cannot be avoided, an attorney in North Carolina can assist a client in pursuing a lesser sentence during court proceedings.
