A drug charge can lead to serious consequences and an extensive legal battle. When police make an arrest and charge someone with drug crimes, that person may face a wide range of possible penalties. In Indiana recently, a man was arrested on drug crimes after several encounters with police.
The 24-year-old is facing both dealing and possession charges. The police conducted what is called a controlled buy to confirm some suspicions that the man was allegedly dealing drugs. Twice they had someone purchase the drugs from the man. In this case, the person was a confidential informant. Then, they served a search warrant after the buys.
