New York police arrest driver for drug possession after stop

In this blog, we previously discussed how police officers must have reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed to stop a vehicle. In many cases, drug arrests stem from routine traffic stops that result in a search of the driver's vehicle. Generally, an officer is allowed to search a vehicle if the driver gave consent to do so, the officer has a valid search warrant or the officer has probable cause to believe there is evidence of a crime in a vehicle. However, if an officer unlawfully searches a vehicle, any evidence they find relating to potential drug crimes may be thrown out of the case.

Criminal defense protections for drug charges are important

Drug possession is a serious criminal charge, which is why it is important for accused individuals to be familiar with their criminal defense rights. Accused individuals who have been charged with drug crimes face serious possible penalties and consequences.

The officers proceeded to search the vehicle and allegedly found a bag with 3.3 pounds of crystal methamphetamine in the spare tire area of the trunk. The driver was then arrested, charged, and held on $1 million bail in a local jail. He may even be deported to his birthplace, the Dominican Republic.

Former New York Yankee faces drug trafficking charges

Drug trafficking or drug distribution often results in more serious consequences than drug possession alone.
