North Carolina officials arrest 3 on drug charges

The media and other sources often discuss the war on drugs. Because of the attention the so-called war receives, officials in North Carolina and across the country are often eager to demonstrate the progress they have made. Unfortunately, the desire for demonstrable progress could lead to false accusations and wrongful arrests. Three people may choose to fight drug charges they now face following a recent arrest.

Police say that they were notified that there would be a potential drug drop in one North Carolina city that would then be transported. It is unclear where investigators received this information. However, they were looking for a specific vehicle as a result of the tip.

Reports indicate that police located the vehicle in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. While the group contained three people, reports claim heroin was only found on one person. The amount of heroin discovered is unclear. All three people -- a 49 year-old man, 20 year-old woman and 29-year-old man -- have been arrested and charged with possession. The woman faces additional charges.

If drugs were only found on one person, it is unclear how North Carolina police determined that all three of those arrested were aware of the presence of the drug. While the desire to ensure that heroin does not end up being sold is understandable, there must be sufficient evidence to gain a conviction of drug charges. Without such evidence, defendants must be found not guilty of the charges they face. In this case, there are many issues that will likely need to be addressed and questions answered in order to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
