2 facing drug charges following apartment raids

Two New York residents were issued drug charges following a June 23 raid at their apartments. One apartment was located on Hazzard Street and the second apartment was located on Colfax Street in Jamestown.

Both of the apartments had been reported as nuisances by the neighbors. During the raids, officers with the Jamestown Police Department recovered about 10 grams of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia items, doses of LSD, an illegal stun gun and an undisclosed amount of cash.

One of the men was facing charges of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal possession of a weapon. Authorities determined that the man was responsible for renting the apartments and was mainly in charge of the alleged drug activity occurring there. The other accused individual, a 34-year-old woman, was facing charges for criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

The state of New York takes the accusation of drug crimes seriously. Because the state aggressively prosecutes drug cases, those who are accused of being involved in drug-related activities or who are accused of being in possession of illegal substances could face serious consequences. Depending on certain circumstances, like the type and amount of drugs, a person could be sentenced to a lengthy jail sentence, probation and rehabilitation. A criminal law attorney could mount a strong defense against the charges depending on the circumstances surrounding the case. In some cases, a challenge could be made to the search that led to the seizure of the drugs as being beyond the scope of the warrant.
