2 men face drug charges in Florida

Two arrests were recently made in Florida in connection with drug sales allegedly being made at a home. The arrests on drug charges took place on a Wednesday. Reportedly, the two men arrested are ages 19 and 25.

Police said detectives served a search warrant at the residence after investigators had learned that drugs were being sold out of the home. The two men at the home allegedly tried to run away when a SWAT team arrived. However, they were quickly taken into custody.

Authorities reported that they also found two firearms inside the house, a 9 mm semiautomatic and a .38 revolver. In a car that the older man had apparently driven, they allegedly discovered more than 3 grams of cannabis and more than 6 grams of cocaine after also obtaining a search warrant for the vehicle. The two men now face charges of possessing cocaine and drug equipment. They have also been charged with maintaining a narcotic dwelling as well as resisting arrest with no violence.

As cases involving drug charges move forward through Florida's criminal justice system, accused individuals -- alongside their legal counsel -- might have the chance to negotiate plea agreements in exchange for reduced charges and/or personally favorable sentencing considerations. A defendant may decide to accept a plea deal if he or she believes this option to be a preferred result, or he or she may proceed to trial on the merits. At trial, the prosecution must prove the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt before a conviction can happen.
