Man charged with drug crimes involving marijuana, methamphetamine

A man in Texas was recently taken into custody regarding accusations of committing a number of drug-related offenses. The arrest took place following a traffic stop along Interstate 30. The man accused of committing drug crimes is 45 years old.

Police said they stopped the man on a Sunday while he was driving a pickup truck, as he had committed a traffic violation. As the truck slowed down, police reportedly saw the truck's passenger move around in the cab before tossing an item out of the window. Authorities asked the driver to get out of the motor vehicle, at which point she reportedly admitted that her passenger had tossed marijuana out of the window.

The police officer who conducted the traffic stop reported that he detected the smell of marijuana in the truck. When he searched the automobile, the officer allegedly found a bag with two pipes in it -- pipes used for smoking methamphetamine. In addition, two bags featuring methamphetamine were allegedly in the truck. The passenger reportedly stated that he owned the bag with the pipes in it, and he also produced marijuana and methamphetamine that he had hidden in his pants. He now faces drug possession charges.

The man accused of drug crimes in Texas has the right to proceed to trial to fight these charges. Alternatively, he may seek to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecution, if one is available. This may offer the benefit of leading to a lighter sentence than what he may receive if found guilty at trial. In either scenario, an attorney will push for an outcome that personally favors the client considering the facts of the criminal case.
