Counterfeit drug charge brought against man in Wilmington

It is well-known that a person can face significant charges if they are alleged to have sold drugs. But, did you know that a person can also be charged in relation to allegations of selling fake drugs? Individuals accused of selling or attempting to sell a substance that isn't a drug but having represented in relation to the sale or attempted sale that it was an illegal drug can have counterfeit drug charges brought against them. This is illustrated in a case that has arisen here in Wilmington.

The case involves a 55-year-old man who has prior criminal convictions on his record. Authorities allege that the man tried to sell fake cocaine.

According to authorities, police found 1.6 grams of fake cocaine in the man's possession when they were investigating tips they had received regarding alleged drug sale conduct by him.

The man was then arrested. According to the article on the Star-News' website which reported on this story, the man is facing a charge of possession with intent to sell a counterfeit controlled substance.

As this case shows, there are a wide variety of different types of allegations that a person can be charged with drug crimes in relation to. Given the wide range of circumstances drug crime cases can involve, the issues that can come up in such cases can vary considerably. Being represented by a defense attorney who is knowledgeable of the different types of issues that can come up in drug crime cases can be very important for individuals accused of drug offenses.
