Florida man says he has never sold heroin in his life

If police enter a residence and search it, find nothing suspicious and make no arrests, a homeowner may be understandably frustrated. A man in Florida is apparently feeling that way and recently told reporters he believes he and others like him deserve more respect from authorities. His relationship with a Florida police department is strained at the moment due to actions committed recently by officers who claim to have entered the man's home in search of heroin.

It seems the man and his 60-year-old mother were both handcuffed while police searched his residence. He also said officers basically ransacked the place and did nothing to clean up after themselves once their search was complete. No heroin or other evidence of illicit drug activities was found.

The man in question says he and his mother were treated very unfairly during the impromptu investigation. He has adamantly stated he is a hard-working citizen with absolutely no criminal history and should not have been subject to such harsh treatment. A police sergeant said the department is looking into the situation to determine whether any officer violated strict protocol with regard to drug-related searches.

When asked why officers arrived to the man's home wearing hazmat suits, the sergeant responded that heroin laced with fetanyl is a highly lethal drug, and precautions needed to be taken to protect the officers' health. He also asserted that he knows for a fact that heroin has been sold out of the man's residence. Even if a person in Florida has not been formally charged with a crime, guidance can be sought from a criminal attorney if he or she believes personal rights have been violated during an investigation.
