Federal sweep nets 17 persons arrested on drug charges

A massive investigation spearheaded by federal investigators and announced by a United States Attorney always makes for good press releases. Another large-scale, multi-year, joint-agency investigation in the dogged war against drugs has resulted in 17 people being arrested on drug charges in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. This project involves methamphetamine and its manufacture and distribution in the region. The announcement by the United States Attorney for the Western District was joined by the federal ATF agency and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, along with several county Sheriffs. The charges included conspiracy to distribute, possession with intent to distribute, and manufacture more than 500 grams of methamphetamine.

When a man who is stopped for suspicion of impairment shows a zero reading for alcohol on a breath test it would seem to greatly challenge the viability of a DUI prosecution. Consequently, making an arrest under that circumstance is debatable and probably ill-advised. That reasoning is exponentially increased, however, when the blood test also comes back with a zero reading! This is what has happened to the mayor of the North Carolina town of New Bern who was charged with DUI and whose tests came back negative.

Drug unit stops vehicle and arrests 2 on drug charges

Sometimes stopping a vehicle can be a part of a planned drug operation.

However, such activity raises the usual issues about the necessity for arrest and search warrants and the validity of the procedures used.
