Drug offenses: Illinois police made multiple arrests recently

Illinois police have apparently been busy investigating drug activity and executing search warrants in the Wood River area. On a recent Tuesday, they made six separate arrests for drug offenses. It is important to remember, however, that an arrest does not constitute guilt and each accused person is guaranteed an opportunity to refute charges against him or her in court.

Police began their recent effort early in the morning. After searching a particular residence, a man and woman, ages 34 and 43 respectively, were taken into custody. The judge overseeing the case set the man's bond at $25,000. The woman's bond was twice that much. Both defendants are accused of crimes involving meth.

Later the same day, a 50-year-old woman was arrested during a traffic stop. A K-9 unit had alerted the patrol officer, which led to a search of the woman and her vehicle. Police say illegal drugs were found. The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects people against unlawful searches and seizures, which is why it is critical to know one's rights ahead of time and where to seek support to bring a personal rights violation to the court's attention.

The other arrests made that day all resulted in charges for suspected drug offenses. One of the first things a defendant typically does when charged with drug crimes in Illinois is consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. This is the best way to gain support to determine what options are available to obtain as positive an outcome as possible in court.
