2 men accused of making drug deliveries

Two men who were under investigation by authorities in North Carolina were taken into custody after a traffic stop. The 67-year-old and 36-year-old men, both from Georgia, were accused of delivering controlled substances to Cherokee County. The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, the North Carolina Highway Patrol and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation were all involved in the probe.

After obtaining information about alleged drug deliveries, authorities involved in the investigation stopped a vehicle that was occupied by the two men. A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered several controlled substances including a significant amount of suspected methamphetamine. Investigators also seized suspected cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and drug paraphernalia from the vehicle.

The older man was charged for possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a place for selling or using controlled substances. He was held on a $2,500 secured bond. The younger man was held on a $100,000 secured bond for drug charges that included trafficking methamphetamine, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver heroin and maintaining a place for selling or using controlled substances. The younger man was also handed cocaine and heroin possession charges.

A person who has been handed drug trafficking charges after a traffic stop may try to negotiate a plea deal for reduced charges. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help a defendant to argue that the prosecution has little evidence of drug sales, and the drug trafficking counts should be reduced to drug possession counts. If police did not act lawfully during the traffic stop, an attorney may argue that the evidence they seized is not admissible in court.
