2 face drug possession charges after police chase

Law enforcement officers understand too well the supply chain in the illegal drug trade. While those higher up in the chain may face harsher penalties, even lesser crimes like drug possession can disrupt a person's life and eliminate many opportunities, such as obtaining jobs and funding one's education. Two men in North Carolina are right to have concerns about their futures following their recent arrests.

Police reported seeing a white vehicle parked in the median of a multi-lane highway in the early hours of a recent Thursday. Two men inside the vehicle appeared to be unconscious, according to police reports. However, when a deputy approached the car, the driver sped away. He allegedly led police on a chase that ended after officers used stop sticks. The 34-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were taken into custody.

After a search of the vehicle, police reported finding heroin, meth and opioids, as well as baggies and scales. Police also say they also found money. The driver was charged with possession of numerous substances in addition to felony fleeing to elude and DWI. He was jailed on a $50,000 bond. His passenger faces charges of possession of a schedule IV drug and paraphernalia.

Because of the severity of the charges and the penalties they carry, the two men would benefit from the advice of legal counsel. North Carolina residents who are accused of drug possession should understand the full weight of the charges and the lifelong consequences a conviction may carry. The assistance of a criminal defense attorney can prove invaluable.
