13 arrested on drug charge allegations in New Jersey

A total of 13 individuals were recently arrested for drug crimes following a multi-county drug bust. The arrests were made after an investigation, which authorities say involved multiple agencies and lasted six months. Although the charges faced by these individuals are serious, anyone who faces a drug charge in New Jersey will be given the chance to defend themselves against the allegations in court.

Among the people arrested were three men from Paterson, aged 31, 33 and 19. These three individuals were charged with multiple drug-related crimes. Namely, they were alleged to be involved in the distribution of cocaine and prescription pharmaceuticals.

In addition to the above arrests, authorities executed search warrants at the homes of four of the arrested individuals. The search warrants resulted in authorities allegedly seizing marijuana, cocaine, MDMA and various prescription drugs. In addition to the drugs, authorities allegedly seized two cars and about $15,300 in cash. The other nine people who were arrested were from Passaic, Essex and Bergen counties. These individuals were between 24 and 45 years of age and had various drug offenses.

Defending an individual against a drug charge in New Jersey requires an in-depth understanding of the law as it applies to each individual charge. For example, different pieces of factual evidence must be in place for different types of crimes -- therefore, each charge will require a different kind of defense. Another important point to consider is that the potential punishments associated with each charge are different -- some being more serious than others. When all of these issues are reviewed, in combination with the factual evidence surrounding each case, then the best and most appropriate legal defense strategies will be revealed.
