Man arrested on numerous weapons and drug charges

An arrest for allegations related to drugs in Tennessee can come in many different forms and the circumstances will determine how severe the charges are. People who have been arrested before must be vigilant to this reality. Some allegations carry with them serious consequences. Others are lower level and allow the possibility for the person to reduce charges. No matter what kind of drug charges are alleged, everyone who was placed under arrest for drugs must make sure to lodge a defense from the beginning.

A 23-year-old man faces multiple charges linked to drugs after an arrest. The man was walking through a housing area when he spotted law enforcement officers and walked the other way. The officers were in the area to investigate an assault that was not connected to this man. They became suspicious and witnessed the man place an item under a child who was seated in a stroller. They spoke to him regarding the assault and he is said to have seemed nervous. The man went into a residence and left the child with a woman and the officers. An officer saw a baggie under the child.

The man came back outside and tried to take what had been under the child. Inside the baggies were various amounts of cocaine, heroin and marijuana. The woman let the officers search the property. They found a handgun, a white substance that was not identifiable, ammunition, a digital scale, more cocaine and heroin and $1,100 in cash. The man had close to $400 on his person. He was placed under arrest on numerous charges. As a felon, he is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.

Given the number of allegations against this man and all the narcotics and weapons the officers are said to have found, he faces severe penalties if he is convicted. While the circumstances of this arrest are difficult, that does not mean that he does not have a right to craft a strong defense. Perhaps it is possible to call the search into question. There could be an opportunity to reduce the charges. A felony conviction, particularly with large quantities of drugs, can have a lifelong impact on a person. It is vital that he speak to an attorney immediately to prepare the defense against these charges.
