Raleigh police arrest man for drug trafficking, manufacturing

A Raleigh police officer said he smelled the distinct odor of marijuana near the door of a hotel room as he made a security patrol. That odor prompted a request for a search warrant, the officer said.

Law enforcement officials said that when the search warrant was executed at the S. Wilmington St. hotel, officers found more than 16 pounds of marijuana and 93 grams of butane hash oil inside. Outside the room, a 25-year-old man was arrested and charged with drug trafficking and two other felony charges.

The man apparently fled the hotel as a room was being searched, but he was taken into custody soon afterwards, police said. In addition to the pound of pot, officers found 3.3 ounces of concentrated tetrahydro cannabinol (THC). The man arrested was charged with manufacturing a Schedule VI drug (the butane hash oil), as well as felony marijuana possession.

Bail was set at $100,000 the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

According to the newspaper, police also seized $7,300 in cash and an automobile, as well as drug paraphernalia.

The police officer who claimed he noticed a marijuana odor at the door of room 60 also claimed that a hotel worker told him that guests in room 59 were also renting room 60. The officer said he found the door to 59 ajar and that room occupants allowed him to search it.

He said that inside, he found drug-packaging materials and drug paraphernalia.

An experienced criminal defense attorney works at all times to protect the rights of the accused. Part of this process is determining if searches were lawfully conducted.
