Drugs discovered in private Macon home after search

There are changes coming in the way many U.S. law enforcement agencies approach drugs. This has come on the heels of many states and cities reducing penalties for minor drug offenses. Another connection that occurs in Georgia and elsewhere is drug charges can aggravate other cases against people.

Two men were recently arrested in Macon after a joint investigation by Bibb County law enforcement officers and federal agents. A statement from the investigating unit claimed that both men lived in the house that was searched under a warrant. Officers and agents turned up quantities of cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine as well as firearms, bullets and money. Both men face drug possession charges while one was also charged with possession of a firearm and violations related to prior conviction.

Although the search was conducted with a valid warrant, court orders like warrants may have limits. A judge may specify certain pieces of evidence that law enforcement officers may seize, and although evidence of other violations may be collected, the law may limit its applicability in a court of law.

It is also possible that searches are conducted with either a warrant or probable cause, the doctrine that allows police to search a space if they believe a crime is being committed. Challenges to the validity of a search are key in criminal defense against the resultant charges.

People charged with drug violations have the right to build a defense and safeguard their future. An attorney is often the best ally for people facing probation or jail time over charges related to drugs.
