Group of men arrested and charged with serious marijuana crimes

There are several men in Florida who may not be starting out in 2018 as they had planned. A group was recently arrested and will now face serious marijuana charges and other criminal allegations in criminal court. Among other accusations, authorities say more than 400 pounds of marijuana were seized during the recent investigation.

The situation reportedly unfolded when police received a report about a possible stolen vehicle. Officers say they set out to look into the matter and, at some point, came in contact with a group of men, one of whom was sitting behind the wheel of a car that appeared to be disabled. Two other men were said to have been standing near the outside of the vehicle at the time.

Police approached the men at the vehicle in question and placed them all under arrest. Officers say there was another man inside a nearby home who supposedly tried to exit the area through a garage door while the investigation was transpiring. They decided to arrest him also.

After searching both the car and the house, police say they found hundreds of pounds of marijuana that may be worth as much as $1 million on the street. They also claim to have found more than $40,000 and a firearm that had allegedly been reported as stolen. Marijuana is legal in Florida only for medicinal use in certain situations. The penalties under conviction for manufacturing, selling or using marijuana in a manner now proscribed by law can be quite severe. Chances of avoiding conviction are typically higher if those accused seek aggressive defense representation before heading to court.
