Drug charges follow after police interact with man at gas station

A Georgia man finds himself in serious legal trouble after a chance encounter with law enforcement at a gas station. Police had come to the gas station to look for another person when they noticed a vehicle parked illegally across a handicap space outside of the store. According to the report, the driver, now facing drug charges, was in his vehicle when law enforcement arrived. 

Police say that, when they walked up to the driver, he was pouring a green liquid from a baby bottle into another type of bottle. One of the officers stated that he believed the liquid was codeine. Police asked him to roll down his window, but instead, he opened his car door, after which the officers allege that they smelled marijuana. They asked him to step out of the vehicle, after which they said they noticed a weapon in the car. 

A check confirmed that the gun had not been stolen. The Georgia man states that he has the proper permissions to carry the gun, but he was unable to provide the right paperwork to prove that at the time. He was arrested in the parking lot of the gas station, and he is facing charges that include possession of multiple types of drugs and a firearm.

The man has the right to a presumption of innocence. He can fight the weapons and drug charges against him by building a strong defense strategy. The charges he is up against are serious, and they can impact the rest of his life. He would be wise not to waste any time moving forward in securing the defense help he needs.
