Several men facing serious drug charges in Illinois

Illinois authorities took various task forces into rural lands during a recent extensive drug investigation. The probe had been ongoing for more than a whole year and resulted in several men getting taken into police custody on drug charges. It appears the investigators involved came upon an elaborate marijuana-growing farm during their search and allegedly seized $170,000 in cash from that property and another location as well.

The situation recently culminated when officers showed up at two locations saying they were serving search warrants for the premises. One location was a private residence in McKinleyville; the other, a parcel of land far out in the country in Humboldt County. It was on that property that police say the men arrested were operating a massive marijuana-growing operation.

The lengthy investigation began approximately 10 months ago during a traffic stop. At that time, police claim to have seized several hundred pounds of processed marijuana, which they suspected had been grown somewhere in Humboldt County. They now say they believe the massive production plant they recently visited is the source of the marijuana they seized back then.

Those who face serious drug charges in Illinois have their work cut out for them in court as prosecutors tend to be quite aggressive in their quests for convictions. It is often possible, however, to combat such tactics by launching a strong defense through experienced representation. A savvy criminal defense attorney who has successfully helped others avoid conviction would be a great asset to have on-hand in such circumstances.
