Drug crimes: 1 arrested on suspicion of drug manufacturing

A 37-year-old man has been arrested and accused of involvement in the manufacturing of marijuana following a recent investigation into drug activity in Wisconsin. A conviction for drug crimes of this nature carries severe consequences, and those who face charges under similar circumstances may wish to prepare for what comes next by focusing on their defense. However, without the necessary legal experience, this can be a stressful and intimidating task.

According to reports, the incident stems from a recent investigation during which authorities claim they placed the man under surveillance. Upon executing a search warrant at his residence, authorities allegedly uncovered a complex growing operation consisting of as many as 300 marijuana plants in a barn. They also assert that he had added another building inside the barn to help prevent the odor from escaping.

The nature of the information that led authorities to suspect the man was involved in drug activity remains unclear. Shortly after performing the search, law enforcement agents took him into custody on suspicion of manufacturing drugs. The potential penalties for similar charges are serious, and if convicted, he could be facing a variety of consequences, such as a substantial amount in monetary fines and time behind bars.

Due to the complex nature of the criminal justice system, individuals who stand accused of drug crimes may be uncertain how best to approach the situation. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can provide a person in Wisconsin with guidance in making informed decisions. An attorney can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and provide him or her with guidance on the best course of action to take during subsequent court proceedings.
