Police often suspect people of a crime. If they only have suspicions and no real evidence to support them, there is often little they can do as a result of protections provided by the United States Constitution preventing unreasonable searches and seizures. Despite these protections, police in Nebraska reportedly conducted a search of a Missouri residence, resulting in drug charges, among others, against three young men.
The search of the residence where the three young men reportedly live happened on a day in late March. Though media reports provide detailed accounts of what police say they discovered in the search, the details regarding what prompted the search are unclear. However, it is known that officers served and executed a search warrant.
Reports claimed that police discovered over 2 pounds of what is believed to be marijuana in a downstairs bedroom reportedly belonging to a 19-year-old male. They say that they also discovered an AR-15 and drug paraphernalia. Over 20 pounds of suspected marijuana, more than $10,000 in cash, a pump action shotgun, an AK-57 and an AK-15 were among the items discovered in two upstairs bedrooms and belonging to an 18-year-old male and a 20-year-old male.
Unfortunately, all three of the young men now face multiple, serious charges ranging from felony distribution of marijuana to possession of drug paraphernalia. Two of the men have since been released on bond. In the coming days, the accused men will have to face many decisions that could potentially have a significant impact on the rest of their lives. Often, people in Nebraska facing drug charges feel unprepared to make such important decisions, prompting them to ask an attorney with experience with such cases for assistance.
