Missouri traffic stop leads to felony drug charges

Being pulled over by a police officer can be a nerve-wracking experience. However, knowing people who know their rights can help those in such a situation when they communicate with law enforcement officials. Unfortunately, four people are now facing felony drug charges in Missouri after a police officer initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle in which they were traveling.

The incident happened at approximately 11 a.m. on a day in June. According to reports, a law enforcement officer claims that the 21-year-old driver was following a tractor-trailer towing a car too closely. When the officer stopped the vehicle, he said that the driver and his three passengers were acting suspiciously and gave conflicting stories regarding their travel plans.

The driver denied the officer permission to search the vehicle. However, a patrol dog allegedly signaled that there were drugs in the vehicle, which purportedly gave the officers probable cause to search the vehicle. Police say that they discovered 21 pounds of marijuana in addition to over $3,000 in cash.

All four occupants face felony drug charges as a result of the search; specifically, they are charged with accessory to marijuana delivery. They were released after posting $20,000 bonds. Unfortunately, they are now facing a legal situation that requires them to make decisions that will likely impact the rest of their lives. To ensure that they have the necessary information to make informed decisions, they may choose to consult a Missouri attorney with experience with such cases. Such a professional can carefully examine the details of their arrest in search of actions that may be considered unlawful in addition to helping them understand all of their options and the potential outcomes of each.
