Man and woman in Illinois facing serious drug charges

A half million dollars is considered by most to be a lot of money. That is the bond set for a 48-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman in Illinois. The pair was recently arrested and placed behind bars after a police operation that resulted in serious drug charges against each of them.

Authorities say they had been investigating the situation for two years. In the wee hours of a Tuesday morning, task force agents, a SWAT team and officers from a sheriff's department raided a home where the man and woman were in residence. Officials say there has been a significant problem in the area regarding distribution of methamphetamine.

Authorities apparently think this man and woman are part of the local drug problem. Those who raided the home claim to have found substantial amounts of methamphetamine, as well as various other drugs and drug paraphernalia. Two arrests were made and both people were taken into custody.

Each of those arrested now faces drug charges in Illinois for aggravated delivery of methamphetamine. Before storming the house, law enforcement agents reportedly served a search warrant. It would obviously be quite unnerving to have police and investigators rummaging through one's home at 5 o'clock in the morning. To protect one's own rights, a criminal defense attorney can be contacted for immediate assistance; this type of representation often helps mitigate negative consequences in such circumstances. Generally speaking, the sooner consultation with an experienced criminal lawyer occurs, the more likely a strong defense can be built.
