2 in North Carolina face drug charges

Most people in North Carolina and across the country have a vague awareness that they have certain rights as laid out in the U.S. Constitution. However, without legal training, it may be difficult for them to fully understand these rights and recognize a potential violation. Unfortunately, the details of what led to the recent arrest of three people on drug charges are unclear.

Police say that they arrested the three people on multiple charges. A 28-year-old man and a 45-year-old man face charges of felony possession of methamphetamine. A 26-year-old woman is charged with possession of a Schedule IV substance. All three are accused of possession of homemade liquor.

Though the arrest reportedly happened in a parking lot, it is unclear what attracted police attention to the trio. In addition to the drugs and alcohol, police say they also found a suspicious putty-like substance in the younger man's pickup truck; the man reported that it was an explosive substance that he intended to use to to blow up stumps. The substance was detonated in the parking lot; no charges related to the substances were filed as there was no ignition source.

People suspected or accused of a crime have multiple options. In fact, police cannot search a vehicle without the owner's permission, probable cause or a warrant. If a search occurred without one of those three, it could be considered unlawful. An attorney with experience defending clients in North Carolina from drug charges and other criminal allegations can examine the details of a case and take appropriate action if unlawful actions occurred in the events leading up to -- or following -- an arrest.
