Police arrest 2 in Florida drug bust

According to officers with the Melbourne Police Department, two people were arrested following the execution of a search warrant. Detectives with the special investigations unit and the SWAT team executed the search warrant before 11 a.m. on Jan. 10.

When authorities entered the home, they found different types of drug paraphernalia, including spoons, baggies, needles, pipes and straws. They then searched the upstairs portion of the house, where they found a safe. Inside of the safe, the officers reportedly found 4 grams of heroin, 10.4 grams of methamphetamines, 9.3 grams of MDMA and a handgun.

The officers reportedly found five people inside the home when the raid occurred. Officers placed two of them under arrest, including a 29-year-old man and a 55-year-old man. The 29-year-old was charged with possession of MDMA, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia as well as trafficking heroin. The 55-year-old was charged with possession of MDMA and possession of methamphetamine. The raid was the third conducted by the Melbourne Police Department in the past month. Officers are reportedly seeking to target drug crimes in the city.

People accused of drug offenses may face years of incarceration if they are convicted. That's why anyone facing such a charge may want to reach out to an experienced drug crimes attorney as soon as possible. An attorney may be able to identify issues with how the search and seizure were handled. After challenging the admissibility of some of the evidence, legal counsel could potentially win a dismissal of the charges or secure favorable plea offers.
