Traffic violation leads to record drug bust in Maryland

There are many different circumstances that can lead to an arrest on drug charges, but one of the most common is a traffic stop. People who are transporting illegal drugs, whether in small quantities for personal use or large amounts for distribution, are usually aware that violating traffic laws increases the chances that they will be caught. Running a red light or speeding past a state trooper is a good way to get pulled over, and if the officer who stops you finds probable cause to search your vehicle, you could find yourself in serious legal trouble.

Man stopped on felony drug charges says he's the "middle man"

For many Maryland residents, the borders with Washington, D.C. and northern Virginia may not mean much, but for criminal courts, traveling with drugs across a border could make a relatively minor drug crime into something much more serious. If someone is convicted of a felony drug charge in Maryland, it is possible that he or she could face years in prison and large fines. In some cases, it is impossible to avoid prison time because of mandatory minimum prison sentences, making it extremely important to work with a criminal defense attorney as soon as someone is charged with a felony drug crime.
