4 arrested for drug crimes related to cocaine trafficking

News reports out of North Carolina indicate that two people from that state -- and two from Texas -- have been arrested in connection with a major drug distribution conspiracy. The four defendants, who range in age from 22 to 40, are facing accusations of drug crimes related to cocaine trafficking and conspiracy. Investigators have remained relatively tight-lipped about the specifics in the case, but it appears as though more than 400 grams of cocaine may have been involved in the bust.

The 400-gram level is a threshold for the most serious drug trafficking charges that can be pressed under existing state law. All four of these defendants have been accused of trafficking, while three of them are also facing allegations of conspiracy. One of the defendants reportedly used his 2012 Acura as a storage vehicle for transporting and selling drugs. Another defendant allegedly delivered the drugs to undercover police operatives. The seriousness of the charges is underscored by the bail amounts, which range from $400,000 to $1 million, according to authorities.

The defendants were reportedly arrested on Sept. 21 by narcotics detectives in North Carolina. They were scheduled to have their first court appearances in late September. It is not yet clear whether any of the defendants were able to post bail.

Criminal defendants who are facing drug charges may face a wide variety of consequences in connection with the alleged violations. Even those defendants who allegedly played a smaller role in this distribution effort are facing serious charges. However, an arrest for trafficking and conspiracy does not mean that a conviction is necessarily forthcoming. Every criminal defendant deserves a fair and unbiased legal proceeding, even if he or she is facing high-level drug charges.
