Many individuals who have been accused of crimes may wish to know more about how they could effectively handle such a situation. Three people in Utah may be considering their options for gaining more legal knowledge after recently being taken into custody for alleged drug crimes. Reports stated that two men and one woman were arrested after police executed a search warrant.
It was unclear why the search warrant was obtained, but the search took place at a residence. A 54-year-old man and two other individuals whose ages were not given were reportedly inside the home at the time of the search. Authorities also allegedly found glass pipes, baggies, tin foil and other items described as drug paraphernalia in various locations in the home. Methamphetamine and marijuana were also purportedly found. In addition to the home, police also searched a truck on the premises and reportedly uncovered heroin, cocaine, pills and additional meth and marijuana.
The search led to the arrests of all three individuals, and urine tests allegedly revealed drugs in their systems. The 54-year-old man is currently facing charges for possession of a controlled substance, possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and possession of drug paraphernalia. The two other individuals are facing unspecified misdemeanor charges.
Charges stemming from alleged drug crimes may vary, depending on the circumstances of the case. Therefore, each individual may wish to consider his or her own situation in order to determine the best course of action. The people taken into custody in this situation may wish to consider consulting separately with experienced Utah defense attorneys in efforts to approach their cases in a meaningful manner.
