Drug crimes in the Cumming area are not tolerated by law enforcement. Those who are arrested for drug possession or other drug crimes are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If a person is facing a drug charge they can feel scared, confused and like the entire world is against them.

A Cumming man was recently arrested on drug charges. Undercover detectives noticed the defendant at a Cumming area gas station. The detectives investigated whether the defendant had any outstanding warrants and believed that he had a suspended driver’s license. They apprehended the defendant in a nearby Walmart parking lot. Law enforcement searched the defendant’s car and allegedly found meth, fake ID cards and various drug-related items. He was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, first degree forgery, tampering with evidence, suspended driver’s license, drug related objects and other crimes.

Being arrested for drug related charges is a stressful situation. A person may feel like they were targeted for no reason and now their personal and professional reputation is on the line. It is important for a person to talk to an attorney who specializes in criminal defense. An attorney can help protect their client’s future and tell their side of the story. They can investigate the circumstances surrounding the arrest and determine if there was any wrongdoing on the part of law enforcement. They understand what is at stake and will make sure their client’s defense is strong and aggressive.

It’s a scary situation when a person is arrested on drug charges. If a person is convicted of a drug crime they can face thousands of dollars in fines and jail time, along with a reputation that may never recover. Hiring a criminal defense attorney can be a smart move for a defendant.
