Police claim many of 49 arrested were selling cocaine

An extended drug investigation has come to a close in Florida. Police say they made 49 arrests and are continuing a search for at least four more people in connection to their investigation. They also said that many of the people they arrested were selling illegal drugs on the street. No one facing charges involving cocaine distribution or other drug-related issues has to go it alone in court. There is always support available.

Police officers in this particular situation claim that various drugs were seized, including the dangerous opioid fentanyl, as well as cocaine. Authorities also say they took several weapons and some cash into custody during their searches. An AR-15 rifle was allegedly one of the weapons.

There are also allegations against those arrested, stating that the alleged drug sales they were making were occurring near locations where children frequent, such as parks and day care centers. If convictions occur in such circumstances, sentences may be severe if the court determines that children were somehow endangered through a defendant's actions. Allegations are never a constitution of guilt. Every person is guaranteed the right to a defense.

The recent Florida investigation went on for nine months. The next months for the 49 arrested will no doubt be filled with court hearings, meetings with attorneys and other issues pertaining to the cocaine and other drug charges against them. Although charges against more than one person may be similar, it doesn't necessarily mean the ultimate outcome for all will be the same. Often, the type of defense presented in court makes all the difference in the world, and this is why most defendants seek out experienced criminal law attorneys to assist them.
