Felony drug charges brought against man after Texas traffic stop

When facing criminal charges, some people have more complex cases than others. For instance, a charge for a traffic violation may not seem comparable to someone facing serious drug charges. In the latter case, an individual may need to work hard on defense strategies in efforts to avoid severe consequences.

One man certainly has his criminal defense on his mind after recently being taken into custody in Texas. According to reports, law enforcement agencies have been working to uncover drug-related activity, and an officer apparently stopped the man while he was driving a vehicle. It was unclear what the initial reason for the traffic stop was, but nonetheless, a K-9 officer was utilized, presumably, to determine whether there may have been illegal substances in the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle resulted in authorities finding 29 kilograms of cocaine. It was suggested that the street value of that amount is $1.4 million. The suspect was reported as being a 50-year-old man, and he was taken into custody on a first-degree felony charge of manufacturing/delivery of a controlled substance and a second-degree felony charge of unlawful use of a criminal instrument.

The felony drug charges undoubtedly have this Texas man feeling unsettled. Criminal cases are no easy matter to address, and he may be feeling particularly alone at this point in his life. Fortunately, he does not have to struggle through his case without reliable information or assistance. If interested, he could utilize local legal resources for insight into his case and defense options.
