Man taken into custody on multiple charges

A 38-year-old man was taken into custody on multiple charges after police conducted a search of his North Carolina home. Police came to the man's home at about 12:44 p.m. on May 7 based on a suspicion that drugs may have been stored there. Authorities also were made aware of a possible act of domestic violence as well before visiting the man's residence.

The man would not let police inside of the house, but they saw marijuana and drug paraphernalia in plain view. While applying for a search warrant, police discovered that a woman had been physically assaulted in the home as she had obvious injuries. However, she did not require immediate medical attention. During a search of the home, police found 42 grams of a substance believed to be crack as well as 141 grams of a substance believed to be marijuana.

Drug paraphernalia and cash were also found during the search. The man was taken into custody and taken to jail where he was being held on a $150,000 secured bond for the drug charges which ranged from manufacturing marijuana to trafficking cocaine. He was not granted bond for the domestic violence charges that included assault on a female and violating a court order.

Those who are facing drug trafficking or other drug charges may face many possible penalties if convicted. It is possible to serve time in jail or prison, pay a fine or be ordered to perform community service. An attorney may work to cast doubt on the evidence that led to the charge or cast doubt on witness testimony as a means of defending an individual against the allegation.
