2 arrested for drug charges in Valdosta

Businesses in Georgia have packages delivered frequently. A variety of items necessary to the operation of the business are shipped with no incident. However, according to reports, a Valdosta business recently received packages that led to several drug charges for two people.

The Valdosta Police Narcotics Unit received information about two supposedly suspicious packages that had been delivered earlier to a business. Five packages were inspected by the Unit at the business. The Valdosta Police Drug Detection K-9 worked with the Narcotics Unit and their dog reportedly alerted on the packages.

A 27-year-old woman was held at the business when she came to collect the packages, according to reports. A 28-year-old man was also detained when he came to meet the woman. After the boxes were opened, police reportedly discovered over 9 pounds of marijuana. The estimated street value of the marijuana was over $72,000.

The woman faces felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute as well as use of a communication facility for a drug transaction. The man is charged with criminal intent to possess marijuana with the intent to distribute and use of a communication facility for a drug transaction. At the time of the report, the business was not suspected of being involved in the alleged drug activity.

Drug charges in Georgia could carry penalties from fines to significant time in jail. Anyone facing these types of charges has the right to present a defense. An experienced criminal defense attorney can answer questions a person may have regarding the legal process. A strong defense team is essential in evaluating any evidence available and working toward minimizing the negative impact on a client's life.
