Quantico Law Enforcement Drug Procedure
Law enforcement officers (LEOs) investigate drug cases in numerous ways. One of the most common ways that drug cases are initiated is through a simple traffic stop. This is when a police officer stops a vehicle and subsequently conducts a search of that vehicle based upon his or her observations of the driver, passengers, or any sensory indications illegal substances present. Other ways that law enforcement officers end up investigating drug cases is through tips. Maybe they arrested someone for a drug offense and then used the information gathered during interrogation of the person to investigate others.
LEOs also investigate drug cases through the use of confidential informants or controlled buys. However, it doesn’t matter how your drug charges came to be—the important thing is to start making proactive decisions by retaining the counsel of an experienced Virginia drug attorney.
