Police in Georgia arrest 2 for allegedly violating drug law

A tip led police to search a Georgia area home where they allegedly found a significant amount of illegal drugs. The home's residents were subsequently arrested for violating state and federal drug law prohibiting the possession or sale of methamphetamine, the drug that authorities supposedly discovered. They are both currently behind held without bond.

Police have apparently not disclosed the exact information surrounding the tip that led to the arrests, but it apparently involved a suspicion that at least one of the individuals arrested was involved in a local drug community. From that tip, officers secured a search warrant which they then executed in Sept. 2015. According to reports, they located approximately half a pound of methamphetamine.

The weight of seized methamphetamine was enough to warrant charges for drug trafficking, which is significantly lower than the half pound that was discovered. The drugs were turned over to Georgia's Bureau of Investigation, where it will be weighed in the crime lab in order to determine an official weight. Until then, further specific charges are still pending.

While the possibility of illegal drug activity was the driving force behind the police action, additional charges concerning wrongful gun possession may follow. While these allegations are understandably quite serious matters that can affect the entire community, it is imperative that judgment be reserved for the time being. An arrest or criminal charge for allegedly violating the law might seem incriminating, but in reality, it is nothing more than an unproven allegation, meaning that the defendant is still presumed innocent before the court. During criminal investigations and trial court proceedings, these individuals are still protected by specific rights guaranteed under the law.
