Traffic stop can end in drug possession charges

The battle against drugs rages on in Georgia. Police are on alert and involved in active investigations in an attempt to stem the flow of drugs to area communities. A recent traffic stop led to an arrest for drug possession after the smell of marijuana was detected in the car.

A 23-year-ol resident of Tara Way was recently arrested after being pulled over. The car was initially pulled over because the windshield was partially shattered. The stop occurred on a local road. The officer reported detecting an odor of marijuana in the vehicle and requested backup. Another officer responded and assisted with a search of the vehicle.

The search reportedly revealed a glass pipe, meth amphetamine and marijuana. In addition to the drugs, the officers also reported finding an AR-15 rifle and a shotgun inside the car. The serial numbers did not indicate that the guns were stolen. The driver of the car was charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Driving along a road and seeing flashing lights in one's rear-view mirror can be unsettling. Then to be pulled over and have one's car searched can cause trepidation and fear. When facing charges of drug possession, a consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney can be helpful in understanding one's rights. A Georgia lawyer can inform one of those rights and ensure that they are protected throughout the criminal justice process. It is important to remember that a person is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.
