Drug charges for New Jersey man after home search

Many individuals charged with a crime wish to have the chance to clear their name. Criminal arrests carry possible penalties and jail time, so individuals usually hope to avoid conviction after they have been charged with a crime. Recently, one New Jersey man was arrested on drug charges. He has been released on bail, but will face the charges in court. 

The 26-year-old man was apparently under investigation for alleged criminal drug activity. The police say that they observed drug trafficking from his home and were then able to obtain a search warrant. Police acted on the search warrant at approximately 6:30 a.m. and say they seized several items of contraband and cash. 

Among the items supposedly recovered were illegal fireworks, handcuffs, prohibited weapons and devices, crack cocaine and $8,000 in cash. The man's residence was within 1,000 feet of a school so he was charged with distribution within a school zone as well. Among his other charges were distribution and intent to distribute narcotics and intent to distribute more than 5 ounces but less than 5 lbs. of marijuana. 

The New Jersey resident was booked on the drug charges and later released in accordance with bail system policies. This man, like any other person arrested for criminal charges, will be presumed innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty, and he will have the opportunity to defend against the charges levied against him. Many people facing similar issues in the state seek the aid of an experienced criminal defense attorney for help in building a strong defense.
