One of the most generous sources of drug arrests seems to be where police initially stop a car for a traffic violation and then find drugs. This happened again recently in North Carolina when Henderson County Sheriff's deputies stopped a 2002 Honda Accord and found six pounds of what they described as high grade marijuana. They arrested the occupants, a 26-year old female and a 32-year old male, on drug charges of felony possession of marijuana, felony possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and felony maintaining a vehicle.
Two people are facing drug charges after authorities received tips from sources. When investigators obtained a search warrant for the home, they reportedly found over 100 marijuana plants inside. A woman living inside the North Carolina home has been cited for drug charges, but the man was arrested.
A North Carolina man is facing drug charges after a call came into authorities about prostitution. Police responded to a local motel in Wilmington earlier this month after receiving a report about possible drug use and prostitution going on inside one of the rooms. When they knocked on the door, officers found four people inside. One person had outstanding misdemeanor warrants and was taken to jail on drug charges.
Drug charges are prosecuted seriously in North Carolina; however, that doesn't mean that everyone who is accused is automatically guilty. Two men are facing drug charges after unrelated arrests were recently conducted in Pender County, North Carolina. The first arrest involved a Wilmington man.
