Two men in Utah are currently facing a legal situation that they will undoubtedly want to handle in the best manner possible. The individuals were taken into custody after being suspected of drug crimes involving marijuana. The arrests took place after police acted on a search warrant at approximately 6 a.m., but it was unclear what may have caused suspicion in the first place.
The search occurred at a residence where a 24-year-old man and an 18-year-old man were located. Authorities also purportedly found over a pound of marijuana, more than $6,000, drug paraphernalia and other items in the older man's room. In the younger man's room, police reportedly found marijuana and $300 in cash. It was also noted that a submachine gun was also allegedly located. The report went on to state that marijuana and other drug paraphernalia were found in other areas of the residence as well.
The older man allegedly stated that he sold marijuana from the home, and the younger man purportedly laid claim to marijuana plants allegedly found growing in the basement. As a result, both men were taken into custody. They are facing charges for marijuana cultivation, possession with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. The older man was also charged with child endangerment.
As the men work on their criminal defenses, they may wish to find out more information on the charges associated with the alleged drug crimes. This information may help them determine their options for combating the allegations. If they wish to do so, reviewing their individual cases with their legal counsel may help them feel more secure in their decisions as their cases move through Utah criminal court.
