Being involved in a routine traffic stop can be a stressful process, which may only become more intimidating should it lead to criminal accusations. Many individuals have faced drug charges following the search of their vehicle under similar circumstances. Two men have been arrested and are facing similar charges after two separate traffic stops that took place less than an hour apart in West Virginia.
The first incident occurred when police claim to have come upon a driver who was using a cell phone while operating his vehicle. After initiating a stop, they allegedly found out that he was in possession of methamphetamine. Although it is unclear how authorities came to believe he was in possession of illegal drugs, he was taken into custody and faces multiple charges, including possession of a controlled substance.
