Criminal charges often result after a search warrant has been executed. Police may enter a home and discover multiple infractions. They often find things beyond what was specified in the warrant. A Georgia man now faces drug charges in a similar situation involving a recent search warrant.
Floyd County Police report that a 27-year old Chickamauga man was arrested following a search of his home. The police executed a search warrant at his residence and found methamphetamine there. Since the quantity of the drug in the house exceeded what they expect to find for someone’s personal use, and packaging materials were also found in the home, police charged the man with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.
The man is also charged with felony possession of methamphetamine. According to the police, they also served him with a warrant charging him with felony theft. They allege that the man stole a guitar valued at $1,800 from another home. He has also been charged with two felony charges of probation violation.
Residents of Georgia facing drug charges or other complaints may seek the assistance of a skilled criminal defense attorney. They have the right to contact counsel immediately after they have been charged to help them navigate the process. Having an experienced legal team can help an individual build a strong defense before a case goes to court. The outcome of a trial can never be predicted, but working with counsel to determine the best path forward would be advisable to someone facing drug charges.
