Investigation into vacant building leads to drug crimes charges

Being accused of involvement in illicit drug activity can be a frightening process. Those who encounter allegations of drug crimes may feel somewhat unnerved by the experience, and they might be uncertain how to respond upon being questioned by authorities. A woman has been arrested and is facing drug charges after police claim to have found her taking up residence in a vacant building in Wisconsin.

According to police, the incident took place as officers claim to have encountered a door that was open at a local building that had been vacant for years. They proceeded to search the building and call out to notify any possible occupants. Although no one answered their calls, officers say they found a room with a light on and a closed door, and upon opening the door, they claim to have found the woman laying on a bed.

Police assert that the woman was the subject of an active warrant, and she was taken into custody. Authorities also claim that a subsequent search led to the discovery of a substance that the woman allegedly admitted to be methamphetamine. She is reportedly facing numerous charges in relation to the incident, including possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

With the potential gravity of a conviction for drug crimes, those who face similar charges may find it advisable to seek guidance early on. By speaking with a defense attorney, a person in Wisconsin could gain an understanding of what to expect from the process and guidance in forming a strong defense. An attorney can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and assist in pursuing the best outcome possible during legal proceedings.
