Florida police respond to call, man arrested for marijuana

An 18-year-old man was recently taken into police custody in Florida. The situation is connected to supposed marijuana crimes, in addition to other drug charges. It all started when a resident of a particular neighborhood reportedly called police to ask that officers be dispatched to the scene to check out a suspicious vehicle.

Police arrived at the site and found two people inside a car at the reported location. The person in the driver's seat was later said to an 18-year-old man. There was also a woman in the vehicle at the time. Responding officers say the smelled marijuana when they approached the car.

The man's vehicle was searched. Police say they found several baggies of marijuana weighing more than 13 ounces. They also claim to have seized cocaine and other items often associated with illegal drug sales. The person in the driver's seat allegedly carried more than $300 in cash.

The Florida officers did not take the woman into custody; however, they did arrest the man. The alleged marijuana and cocaine that were seized led to charges of possession of controlled substance with intent to sell, in addition to several other serious drug charges. The outcome of situations like this often depend on whether police officers followed strict protocol that governs their behavior during a search and seizure process. An experienced defense attorney can determine whether grounds exist to challenge evidence based on personal rights violations; this type of challenge often leads to certain evidence being ruled as inadmissible in court and to charges being reduced or dismissed as a result.
