Man faces drug charges following Missouri traffic stop

Traffic stops happen relatively frequently in Missouri and across the country. Often, they are uneventful. Police will issue a citation, and both parties will continue on their way. However, a recent traffic stop reportedly resulted in drug charges after police reportedly found drugs and other items in a man's rental vehicle.

The incident involved a 33-year-old man from another state. According to reports, troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol stopped the man at approximately midnight on a day in mid-February. Troopers claim that the man was following another vehicle too closely, which prompted the stop.

However, reports indicate that troopers found drugs and other items in the man's vehicle. In addition to 11 ounces of marijuana, reports claim that officials discovered oxycodone, paraphernalia, THC wax and vape pens with THC oil, among other items that are allegedly drug related. Troopers claim that there was also more than $25,000 in cash in the vehicle.

An encounter with a law enforcement officer can be intimidating. In a traffic stop such as this, many people in Missouri may be unaware that they do not have to agree to a search of their vehicle. In this particular situation, it is unclear what prompted police to conduct a search and whether they had permission or a warrant. An attorney with experience with cases involving drug charges can carefully examine the evidence in the case -- including how it was obtained -- and provide advice on the most appropriate course of action, potentially including challenging the method in which evidence was discovered.
