Police claim to have discovered illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia and a stolen vehicle at a Kentucky residence. A drug task force team conducted a search of the residence, which led to two arrests. Police also say that it was during the search that they found and recovered a stolen utility vehicle.
A search warrant was reportedly executed
Every person in Kentucky and throughout the country is protected under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution against unlawful search and seizure. In most cases, police must obtain an authorized warrant to search someone’s home, although there are exceptions to the rule. In this case, police claim to have found methamphetamine, firearms and more than $6,300 cash inside a residence when they executed a search warrant at approximately 7 p.m. on a Wednesday.
An investigation had been going on for months
Police said the search of the Kentucky residence was part of an investigation they had been working on for months. Investigators say the drugs they seized may be worth as much as $20,000 on the street. A woman, age 57 and a 56-year-old man were taken into police custody and are now facing multiple criminal charges, including illegal drug possession.
An opportunity to refute drug charges in court
There is no way to predict the ultimate outcome of a specific criminal case. When more than one person is arrested, each is entitled to present a criminal defense to refute the charges against him or her. This is why most defendants request legal representation soon after they have been taken into police custody.
