Apartment dwellers in Florida say heroin has been a problem

When someone mentions Hollywood, most people think of stardom, celebrities, movies and such. However, some Florida residents may associate the location with a recent drug bust in this state that resulted in three arrests. Residents of a Broward County apartment complex in Hollywood say heroin deals have been going on there for quite some time.

Although being arrested and charged with a drug crime does not constitute guilt, the three men taken into police custody after the recent raid will surely have their work cut out for them to fight such charges since police say two of them were found in possession of heroin. The other man allegedly had cocaine and marijuana in his possession at the time he was arrested. A woman who lives near the back of the building said she was afraid to let her children visit for a long time because she noticed suspicious activity going on in the apartment complex.

The building itself is said to be located less than 1,000 feet from a school. Officers say they found various types of drug paraphernalia in the residence during their recent investigation as well. Authorities claim the arrests were  several of many drug arrests that were recently made in the area.

Maximum penalties for conviction of crimes involving heroin, marijuana and cocaine are often quite severe. Florida prosecutors are generally quite tenacious in their quests to secure convictions in such cases. It often takes a highly skilled and aggressive defense attorney to fight against such charges in order to avoid lengthy prison sentences and other long-term negative consequences.
