Traffic stop leads to search warrant and arrest for drug crimes

Traffic stops are an abundant source of drug arrests in Arkansas and nationwide. Some criminal defense experts argue that not all of these stops are really for random traffic violations. They argue that, occasionally, the authorities may stop a driver based on drug suspicions and justify the stop by calling it a traffic violation. Criminal defense counsel will look carefully at the circumstances surrounding purported traffic stops to make sure that there was a legitimate reason to make the initial stop and to file ensuing charges for drug crimes.
