Couple facing drug charges after search of home

Feb 3, 2020 | Drug Offenses

No one wants to end up having to defend against criminal accusations. Of course, many people do face this type of ordeal, and it can be difficult for them to know exactly how to handle it. For some, drug charges may come against them, and they may need to thoroughly assess the details of their cases in efforts to find the best way to move forward.

Two individuals in Texas are likely trying to go over their cases as best as possible after recently being taken into custody. Reports indicated that a 43-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man were at a residence when authorities executed a search warrant at the home. It was unclear what evidence resulted in the approval of the warrant, but nonetheless, the search was conducted.

Authorities allegedly found a pound of what they suspected was methamphetamine at the location as well as drug paraphernalia and suspected marijuana. The incident resulted in both the man and woman being taken into custody on charges of possession of a controlled substance and fraudulent use or possession of identifying information. The latter charge resulted due to officers purportedly finding personal documents that they suspected were stolen from other individuals in the area.

This ordeal will undoubtedly be trying for both of these Texas residents. They will each need to consider their defense options for handling the drug charges, and it may be important for them to remember that they have their own individual cases and charges to handle. Though they may have concerns about how the other person’s case will play out, it is important that they consider their own best interests at this time.
