In some cases, what one person views as suspicious behavior might not always seem out of sorts to someone else. Unfortunately, if authorities deem an act as suspicious, they may feel a duty to further investigate the matter. A recent incident in which suspicious behavior prompted a traffic stop has reportedly left a 30-year-old man in Georgia facing drug charges.
The incident reportedly began after authorities say they encountered a driver exhibiting suspicious behavior at around 11:30 a.m. on a recent Wednesday. After watching a vehicle enter the lanes of traffic, stop for a brief moment for the driver to activate the vehicle’s headlights and proceed, police say they chose to initiate a traffic stop. During the stop, they claim to have located several weapons within the vehicle.
Authorities also assert that they uncovered the presence of unspecified amounts of unidentified substances suspected to be drugs inside the vehicle, along with various types of drug paraphernalia. Reports did not provide any information as to what led to the search of the vehicle. However, the driver was arrested soon thereafter and is facing multiple charges in relation to the incident.
Those who stand accused of drug charges might not always have a full understanding of their legal rights. As such, a person in Georgia who faces allegations of unlawful activity under similar scenarios could find it helpful to speak with an attorney as soon as possible for guidance in navigating the subsequent process. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client is facing thoroughly and assist him or her in developing a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
