Criminal defense: Men facing drug charges after search of home

Being convicted of drug charges in Iowa could lead to some serious consequences, such as fines or jail time. Two Iowa men are facing several felony charges after drugs were allegedly discovered at their apartment. To get these charges dropped or reduced, the men will need to present a strong criminal defense.

Officers from the Forest City Police Department reported that they had obtained a warrant to search the apartment of a 23-year-old man and 21-year-old man. During the search, officers apparently found over 42.5 grams of marijuana. An agreement was also located that supposedly specified how proceeds from drug sales would be distributed among the three people who signed the document.

Police claim that the older man said that he had used an alias to sign the agreement and that he had been given money by the other two people to start the operation. The younger man purportedly stated that he had also signed the agreement and had given the money to the other man. Over $1,800 in cash was located in the search.

Officers evidently discovered pre-rolled marijuana joints and a scale, as well as a record of pricing information. Both men face felony charges of conspiracy and gathering where drugs are used, while the younger man has a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. The older man was also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and failure to affix a drug tax stamp.

Anyone facing drug charges should immediately contact an Iowa criminal defense attorney. A knowledgeable lawyer will evaluate any evidence in the case and determine if it was obtained legally. In addition, the defense team will ensure that the warrants were issued and executed properly. Every effort will be made to get a client's life back to normal as soon as possible.
