Man being held on bail after arrest for drugs and weapons

People are arrested and/or charged with crimes everyday. However, not everyone that is charged with a crime in the Fairfield County area is guilty. Law enforcement officers make mistakes, just like everyone else. Sometimes those mistakes can end up leading to unfair charges or convictions to people who are innocent.

Authorities have charged a 24-year-old Middletown man with more than a dozen weapons and drugs violations after they allegedly found a small arsenal of guns and several ounces of marijuana in his home recently. Included among the many drug charges the man is facing are possession of marijuana, possession of a hallucinogen, operating a drug factory and possession with intent to sell. The weapons charges include illegal possession of an assault weapon, possession of a stolen firearm and risk of injury to a minor.

The man says that he bought the assault rifle in a private sale and that he obtained a pistol in question from another man who owed him money. He also claims that he bought the shotgun from a gun store. Authorities are holding the man with bail set at $350,000, while he waits to appear in court again later this month.

If the man is convicted of all or any of these crimes, he could face years in prison. The consequences of drugs and weapons crimes can alter a person’s life forever. Any time a person is facing criminal charges of any kind it’s imperative that he or she seeks the proper defense attorney to help fight the charges brought against him or her. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer understands what it takes to fight the charges.
