North Carolina trio faces drug possession and other charges

Sometimes, a person can end up in trouble simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately, friends and associations may draw the attention of law enforcement, and those who are in the vicinity may find themselves facing criminal charges. Two North Carolina women may be regretting their recent visit to the home of a man who was the target of an ongoing police investigation.

Police say their investigation led them to the home of a 63-year-old man who had a record of felony convictions. Reports do not indicate if police had a warrant when they entered the man's home, but once inside, they executed a search. Officers claim to have recovered cocaine, drug paraphernalia and a firearm. The possession of a firearm by a convicted felon may result in severe penalties if the man is convicted, especially since police believe the man intended to distribute the drugs.

In addition to the man's arrest, two women in the home were also taken into custody. Police charged a 35-year-old woman with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and failure to appear on charges in another county. Officers also apparently had an arrest warrant for the 41-year-old woman in the house. She was charged with failure to appear on several misdemeanor charges.

While the man may have the most to lose, all three people arrested during this raid now face the possibility of severe consequences. Conviction for drug possession and related charges may result in jail time as well as a criminal record that could complicate many aspects of life in the future. For the best possible outcome, those in North Carolina who face these circumstances would benefit from the counsel of an attorney.
