Police accuse Illinois man of drug crime and seize a car

One never knows when an uneventful day at home may suddenly turn into a highly stressful situation. Illinois residents who have had their homes raided by police no doubt understand how this feels. It can be an extremely degrading and emotionally traumatic experience to watch law enforcement agents rummaging through one's personal things as if they are meaningless objects. Police searched a man's home recently and wound up accusing him of a drug crime.

After officers went through the man's home, they placed him under arrest and took him to a county jail. They claim to have found a substantial amount of cocaine in the residence. Police say the drugs they seized would be worth more than $6,000 on the street.

Officers also reportedly took a pistol into their custody, and, for some reason, seized a vehicle as well. The man who was arrested is currently being held behind bars without bond. The drug crime with which he's been charged is felony possession with intent to deliver. 

Prosecutors in Illinois and most other states are typically very focused when seeking conviction against someone accused of a drug crime. When the amount of a particular drug is considered substantial, prosecution tactics tend to be even more tenacious. Many times, the only hope a defendant has to avoid conviction in such circumstances is to rely on a highly aggressive and experienced defense attorney in court. Choosing an attorney who has handled other high profile cases will likely increase one's chances of obtaining the best outcome possible in a serious situation.
