76 arrested in drug operation on North Carolina tribal land

Last month, federal officials announced that 76 people here in North Carolina were arrested in an undercover drug operation that involved multiple law enforcement agencies. The purpose of the sting was to apprehend people engaged in drug trafficking on and around tribal lands — specifically, those belonging to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians — and to work to break up the drug distribution networks in that area.

You can be arrested for DWI/DUI if you're under the legal limit

As most every driver knows, it's illegal in North Carolina and across the country to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. You can be arrested for DWI/DUI if a Breathalyzer test puts you over the limit even if you've exhibited no other indication that you're under the influence and haven't been swerving, speeding or committing other traffic violations. Under the law, this is called "per se intoxicated."

Accused of selling drugs? Get a strong defense

Of all the types of drug crimes you could be accused of, being accused of selling, distributing or trafficking drugs is one of the worst. This is a felony crime and one that is taken more seriously than simple drug possession. Why? It implies that you're spreading the use of illegal substances around the country, which makes more work for the authorities and hurts individuals.

Illegal searches could lead to evidence being inadmissible

You may be under the impression that a police officer may search you because he or she believes you've done something wrong, but the reality is that the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects you against illegal searches and seizures. To get a warrant that gives the officer a right to search you, your vehicle or your property, there must be probable cause.

Charges keep piling up for man arrested 3 times in 8 days

It's one thing to get arrested, but it's another to get arrested multiple times in a few days. Getting arrested multiple times makes you look very bad in the eyes of the law, even if they're all coincidental or as a result of being set up by the same officer multiple times.
