Florida police say their surprise visit led to drug charges

As soon as a Florida police officer knocks on someone's door, asking to step inside to have a look around, the person on the other side of the door has several immediate decisions to make that carry legal consequences, no matter what is decided. Several narcotics officers showed up at a particular home on a recent Thursday, and wound up searching the premises, then making several arrests. Those arrested now face various drug charges.

Deputies from a narcotics task force and members of a SWAT team reportedly combined efforts to serve a search warrant at a house in Port Charlotte. The impromptu visit was apparently part of a month-long investigation. By the time the full search process was executed, police officers on-site made eight arrests.

Those taken into custody range in ages from 27 to 59. In addition to charges related to marijuana and methamphetamines, those arrested are also facing drug paraphernalia charges. The 27-year-old man who was arrested has been charged with illegal possession of a firearm as a convicted felon as well.

The eight people arrested at the Florida home were taken to a county jail. Even when more than one person is arrested at the same time for similar drug charges, it doesn't necessarily mean each will obtain the same outcome. That, of course, depends upon the facts and the evidence that prosecutors seek to introduce in court. The adjudication process varies according to individual circumstances, and whether a particular defendant secures a favorable outcome largely depends on the type of defense he or she presents in court.
