Several in Florida facing serious drug charges

Nine people have been arrested in the past month over drug-related issues in Florida. Authorities say they've filed drug charges involving heroin, cannabis and ecstasy. All nine arrests were apparently part of the same drug trafficking investigation.

A 26-year-old woman was one of the first to be investigated in this particular task force operation. Authorities say they considered her a mid-level drug dealer with strong ties to larger drug distributors in the state. Police say as a result of their investigation, they seized more than 62 grams of heroin. Other drugs allegedly seized in the raid include methamphetamine, approximately 15 grams of ecstasy and 100 packs of synthetic marijuana.

The charges filed by the state also involve various firearms violations. One of the guns seized was apparently reported as a stolen law enforcement weapon. Part of the drug trafficking investigation included multiple undercover purchases. It was during one of these meetings that detectives moved in and made the nine arrests.

Prosecutors are typically very aggressive in their quests to secure convictions when drug charges include heroin, ecstasy and other heavy narcotics. A defendant usually has a better chance of obtaining a positive outcome when acting alongside skilled and aggressive defense representation in court. An experienced defense attorney can explain all options that might be available to combat tactics used by prosecutors; in fact, in some situations, a Florida attorney may determine that proffered evidence may be challenged as inadmissible if authorities failed to adhere to strict protocol regarding the search and seizure process.
