Many individuals have found themselves facing criminal allegations following a routine traffic stop. Without the necessary legal experience, a person may be unaware of his or her legal rights during a traffic stop, and may feel obligated to consent to an officer's request to search the vehicle. A man is reportedly facing multiple drug charges after allegedly consenting to a search to a recent traffic stop in West Virginia.
According to reports, law enforcement agents initiated a traffic stop for unspecified reasons upon encountering a vehicle in a local parking lot. After speaking with the driver, they claim he gave them permission to perform a search of the vehicle. During this process, police allegedly uncovered the presence of as many as 41 grams of methamphetamine and 29 grams of heroin and cocaine, along with cash and a loaded firearm.
