Drug charges come against man after apartment search

On Behalf of | Jul 16, 2021 | Criminal Defense |

In many cases, people facing criminal charges may feel as if their defense options are limited. However, many details can be examined when trying to find ways to defend against allegations, and it may be in those details that a person finds a way to have evidence or even charges dismissed. Of course, it takes a considerable amount of work and knowledge of the law to understand how those details could help defend against drug charges, so having help is typically a smart step. 

One man in Massachusetts may be looking into gaining support after recently being arrested. According to reports, investigators and law enforcement officials with a special investigations unit and a drug enforcement unit carried out a search warrant at the what was presumably the man’s residence. It was unclear what prior information and evidence may have resulted in the search warrant receiving approval from a judge. 

During the search, authorities allegedly found the following items in the apartment: 

  • Approximately 1,400 grams of fentanyl 
  • Approximately 160 grams of cocaine 
  • Two firearms 
  • Over 100 rounds of ammunition for the firearms 

The man is currently facing drug charges for class A and class B trafficking, as well as unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition. These allegations could seriously affect the man’s future if he is convicted, but fortunately, he has the right to defend against the charges in a Massachusetts criminal court. Going over the information included on the search warrant, why authorities were able to obtain the warrant, whether officers and investigators acted appropriately, and more could help him determine whether any issues related to these matters could influence his defense.
