Super Bowl champ LeGarrette Blount's brother facing drug charges

A particular Florida neighborhood was recently the center of focused police activity. Investigators apparently showed up at several residences, claiming to have search warrants. Following the spree of home searches, police made several arrests, and drug charges were filed against those in custody, one of whom is said to be the brother of NFL star, LeGarrette Blount.

Even when police produce valid search warrants, it does not mean residents who allow them into their homes are abdicating their civil rights. Police do not have free rein to do and say whatever they like in such situations. There is strict protocol that must be followed by all law enforcement agents so individual rights are not violated. Any evidence presented in court that is believed to have violated someone's rights may be challenged.

In this particular instance, the person identified as Blount's brother, and five others, were taken into police custody. Investigators say they seized various types and amounts of drugs, including cannabis, cocaine and prescription pills. Ages of those arrested range from 24 to 41.

Police said their overall drug task force investigation and multiple searches encompassed four separate residences on several different streets within the same Florida neighborhood. The estimated street value of the drugs investigators claim to have seized totals more than $12,000. As with any investigation that results in drug charges, each person arrested will be given ample opportunity to present as strong a defense as possible to avoid conviction. Most defendants typically rely on experienced and aggressive legal representation in such circumstances because doing so is known to increase the chances of obtaining positive results in court.
