Arkansas residents who have been arrested for possession of controlled substances such as methamphetamines, heroin, marijuana or cocaine may face potentially high fines and even some years in jail. Both possession and the intention of selling controlled substances could end up in a conviction that will have lasting consequences on an individual’s life. However, any person who is accused of such offenses has the right to obtain representation to protect his or her legal rights.
During a recent raid on a hotel in Fayetteville, four individuals were arrested and charged with suspicion of possessing methamphetamines and the intention to deliver, along with drug-related paraphernalia possession. Two of them received additional charges of controlled substance possession. All four suspects were detained on various levels of bond.
Authorities apparently executed a warrant to search the hotel rooms, and they allegedly found evidence in two adjoining rooms of the hotel. They claim that the suspected individuals tried to flee the scene, but they were all apprehended and arrested. Agents from the task force reported that a methamphetamine pipe, plastic baggies and a scale were seized, along with 38.6 grams of methamphetamine.
Arkansas residents who have been accused of possession or selling controlled substances may want to retain the services of a professional who could protect their rights and defend the criminal charges against them. An experienced drug defense attorney will examine all aspects of the arrest and subsequent charges before suggesting a defense strategy. Such guidance may protect the freedom of accused individuals, along with their futures.
