Many arrested for drug crimes after month-long operation

In some cases, a drug-related arrest is made following a routine traffic stop or an encounter with police on an unrelated matter. Drug charges may then be added to a list of other offenses and used as part of negotiating for a plea deal. However, police may also make arrests for drug crimes based on intense investigation and evidence gathering. Law enforcement in a Massachusetts city recently completed such an operation and made hundreds of arrests.

The fourth annual Operation Full Throttle was conducted during the month of June and involved the narcotics and vice unit of the city police force. When law enforcement agencies launch such in-depth operations, they typically have a goal in mind and may even be in search of a particular individual. While many of the operation's 446 arrests were for drug possession, 152 people were charged with distribution, intent to distribute or trafficking.

One man in particular faces a difficult road ahead. Law enforcement charged the 28-year-old with 34 counts of distributing cocaine and heroin. He is apparently well-known among narcotics officers, and they are hoping to have him incarcerated for an extended period of time. The man has previous drug distribution arrests, and police say he is a danger to the citizens of their Massachusetts city.

Facing charges for drug crimes can place a person's future and freedom in jeopardy. With the evidence compiled following a month-long operation, the accused may feel he or she has few options. However, an experienced criminal law attorney will examine the evidence carefully and determine whether police violated the rights of the accused during their investigation and arrest.
