Man faces charges for bringing drugs into New York

A Canadian man was arrested on Dec. 22 by American law enforcement agencies for transporting drugs worth thousands of dollars into western New York. The 40-year-old man from British Columbia was arrested with the assistance of the Erie County Sheriff's Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Niagara Falls police department and Homeland Security.

The drug haul, which has a street value of almost $500,000, was located in a hidden section in the trunk of the vehicle that was driven by the alleged smuggler. According to police, the arrest of the Canadian man is only a part of an extensive investigation into the international smuggling of drugs.

In addition to four firearms, federal agents also seized 100 pounds of marijuana, three ounces of methamphetamines and $10,000 in cash that had been stored at a separate location. The Canadian man was arraigned in court on the same day he was arrested and charged with numerous counts of drug-related felonies, including possession with the intent to sell. He was placed in holding without bail.

Drug crimes that include transporting illegal substances into the United States may result in serious consequences. Related charges can include drug distribution, intent to distribute, drug trafficking, drug possession and more. An attorney who practices criminal law may work to ensure that a defendant's rights are protected during the legal process. The lawyer could examine every aspect of the case, from the investigation conducted by law enforcement officials to how the arrests were conducted. If necessary, the attorney may also advocate for a defendant during a trial.
