While some people in Texas have wonderful neighbors, it is not unheard of for there to be conflict between people who live in close proximity. Unfortunately, in some cases an accusation made to police may be all it takes to raise suspicions, even if the accusation could have been made by an unhappy neighbor. However, seven people were recently arrested on allegations of drug crimes, among others, following raids.
Reports indicate that police raided three homes. The raids resulted in the arrest of seven people. Charges include animal cruelty, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
Police say that the homes were targets after they received multiple reports about suspicious activities. While the identity of those arrested and many of the details regarding the raids are unclear, the police chief reportedly issued a press release after he came into office, encouraging people to contact police if they saw suspicious behavior. Those issuing such reports were asked to record such information as physical details of the people allegedly involved, information regarding the types of vehicles they drive and information regarding the date and time of day alleged activity occurred.
Those arrested and accused of drug crimes, among others, are now likely wondering about their legal options. Often, people in Texas facing criminal charges feel unprepared to make the necessary decisions that they will face as they navigate through the criminal justice system. As a result, they turn to an experienced criminal defense attorney who is willing to fight aggressively on their behalves to guide them through the process.
