39-year-old Raleigh man arrested for heroin-related crimes

A 39-year-old Raleigh man was taken into custody on drug charges at a local apartment complex last Monday. Authorities charged the man with trafficking heroin. The charges were listed as one count of heroin possession with intention to deliver or sell and one count of heroin trafficking by possession.

Police claim the man had 39 grams of the drug, which equates to approximately 1.4 ounces, in his possession at the time of the arrest. An arrest warrant was served against him and he was taken into custody at around 3:30 p.m. at the Edison Lofts building on S. Blount Street. The warrant does not indicate if the man was arrested in an actual apartment or simply at the apartment complex. According to the arrest warrant, the accused man does not himself reside at Edison Lofts.

Because he did not post his bail, which was set at $250,000, the man will remain in custody until -- at the very least -- he attends his first court hearing next Tuesday. He may try to secure his release during that hearing, but he could remain in custody until the conclusion of his trial if he is unable to achieve this result at Tuesday's hearing.

When bail is set at an extremely high level, arrested and accused North Carolina residents can try to get the size of their bail reduced so that it is easier for them to be on release until the conclusion of their criminal trial proceedings. Of course, if they are not successful at trial and suffer conviction and punishment that includes jail or prison time, then they will need to report to be taken back into custody to serve their sentences. Alternatively, if they are successful in getting their charges dropped, dismissed or in obtaining a verdict of not guilty, then they will walk clean, innocent and free of the crimes of which they were accused.
