North Carolina men charged after drug raid

Police in North Carolina took two men into custody on the morning of Sept. 11 who they believe were responsible for distributing significant quantities of methamphetamine throughout Caldwell County. The men were arrested after members of the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office SWAT team conducted a search of their Lenoir residence. Narcotics officers from the Lenoir Police Department were also dispatched to the scene on Northwest Hillside Street according to reports.

Media accounts reveal that the evidence needed to obtain a warrant to search the home was gathered during an investigation run jointly by the CCSO and LPD. During this operation, undercover officers are said to have purchased methamphetamine from the men on several occasions. The search allegedly yielded methamphetamine with a street value of approximately $31,500 and what was described as a small amount of marijuana. Officers also say that they found evidence of a drug distribution business including ledgers, drug paraphernalia and $7,649 in cash.

Police believe that the two men used the Lenoir residence as a base of operations from which they distributed quantities of methamphetamine to the surrounding area each week. They are being held at the Caldwell County Detention center on drug manufacturing, possession and distribution charges according to the CCSO.

Experienced criminal defense attorneys may seek to settle cases involving serious drug charges quickly when police have collected evidence carefully and do not appear to have violated protections guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. They could also advise their clients to consider cooperating with the authorities when co-defendants are involved. In these situations, prosecutors will generally offer reduced charges or less severe penalties to one defendant in return for information that can be used against the others.
