Drug Charges Archives

2 arrested in New York for designer drug crime

A man and a woman are facing federal charges for allegedly trying to sell designer drugs, including synthetic opioid apparently much stronger than morphine. The drug charges culminated from an investigation that included a raid on a high-end condominium in Long Island City.  Law enforcement authorities believed a synthetic drug lab was being operated out of the New York City waterfront apartment complex. At the same time, another raid was taking place in an adjacent state near the home of the woman also facing drug crime charges.

New York state resident slapped with drug paraphernalia charge

A 21-year-old man is facing numerous charges after a recent traffic stop on an interstate highway in Allegany County.

According to the Sheriff's office, the suspect was stopped by the STOP DWI Unit.

6 face drug crime charges in alleged heroin trafficking case

Buying or selling drugs in the state of New York is never a wise decision. Penalties for a drug crime can range from fines and/or probation to significant time in prison if someone is convicted. Recently, six men from Brooklyn and Queen were arrested on charges of heroin trafficking following an investigation that last over two years.

Arrests made in alleged drug trafficking ring

Officials in New York have recently reported the arrests of several people for a variety of alleged drug charges. The charges stem from an investigation of a reported overdose death nine months ago. According to authorities, the probe resulted in the discovery of a supposed trafficking ring involving several narcotics.

A passenger's rights when confronted with airport security

A trip to the airport in New York can be a harrowing experience at the best of times. It is even more unpleasant for passengers who are stopped or detained. Airport security officers can be domineering and unpleasant, but that does not mean they have the right to all of the information they are requesting.

Was that search and seizure legal?

Imagine heading out of town to go hit the beach with some of your friends. You were looking forward to a nice weekend getaway, soaking up the sun and enjoying a good party. However, before you even made it out of the city, a police officer pulled you over and your weekend was interrupted by an arrest for drug possession. The law enforcement officers searched your vehicle and found marijuana, but was the search and seizure legal?

Were you accused of growing marijuana in your basement?

Marijuana laws are changing rapidly throughout the United States. In some states, certain individuals are permitted to grow their own personal supply of marijuana plants, but not in New York. Unless you're one of the 10,000-plus patients approved to use medical marijuana in our state, the drug is off-limits.

Treatment for drug offenders more economical than incarceration

America incarcerates a greater percentage of its own citizens than any other country in the world. And one of the largest contributing factors to our high prison population is the way in which drug crimes are addressed in the criminal justice system.

Fighting back against drug charges

The state of New York takes drug trafficking very seriously. Not only is the possession of drugs such as cocaine and methamphetamine illegal, so is the possession of any substances or materials used to make them. However, the laws are complicated which means that there are multiple classifications for drug possession. There are five different degrees for selling illegal drugs, with the fifth-degree being the least severe.

Tens of thousands of convictions dismissed due to lab tech fraud

The criminal justice system is only as fair as those who work within it. Most men and women who do this important work are honest. But it only takes a few bad actors to cause serious havoc and call the integrity of the entire system into question.
