Man's attempt to hide drug crimes from wife brings other charges

A Florida man might have thought he had it all worked out when he called the police to report a mugging. In an effort to hide his drug crimes from his wife, he landed behind bars on other charges. The man whose plans backfired is a 35-year-old resident of DeLand.

Florida named one of the worst states for drug arrestees

Being arrested for drug crimes has consequences in every state, but Florida residents may find that their penalties are worse than those of neighboring communities. While each state government is given the authority to select and enforce the punishments for lawbreakers, you may be among those who are concerned about the harsh consequences that are inflicted in courtrooms across the state. We at the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey are committed to fighting for your right to fair treatment if you are accused of a Florida drug crime.

Florida drug crimes suspects arrested in predawn raids

According to Fort Myers law enforcement officials and others, police often serve warrants early in the morning because most people are asleep then. It makes it easier for officers to make arrests when suspects are sleepy. Officials find that in predawn raids, there is typically less resistance than in operations carried out later in the day.

Drug-trafficking fueling boom in Florida money-laundering?

It is said to be Florida's fastest growing suburb, adding residents to its sun-soaked streets faster than any other in the state. Just a two-hour drive southeast of Fort Myers, the booming town of Doral is known for growth, warmth and a bustling money-laundering industry fueled by illicit gains from the drug trade, a recent article in USA Today states.

Three-year investigation results in federal drug charges

A three-year federal investigation ran the length of America's eastern seaboard: from Florida up through Massachusetts and into Maine. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Boston, the extensive probe resulted in the arrests of 10 men (including two Florida residents) on charges of conducting large-scale trafficking of heroin, oxycodone and fentanyl.

What is the crime of drug paraphernalia possession?

Many people would be surprised to learn they risk getting accused of drug paraphernalia possession if law enforcement agents search their car or house. Florida law defines drug paraphernalia as any object that can be used to ingest, make, transport or package drugs. This is an extremely wide category, as many such objects are not specialized equipment that clearly point to drug involvement. The statute itself lists common household objects like scales, duct tape and plastic bags.

Florida cop who thought doughnut glaze was meth is reprimanded

Last year, a 64-year-old Florida man was pulled over for failing to stop as he left a convenience store parking lot and for then driving too fast. An Orlando police officer asked the man to step out of his vehicle. When he did, the officer noticed "a rock like substance on the floor board," she noted in her police report.

Drug addiction and self-medication

The typical narrative about people who get arrested for drug use often goes something like this: he liked to party, she hung out with the wrong crowd, they were always pushing boundaries. While this can be true of some people, many others end up addicted due to the influence of several types of health factors.

Fort Myers drug arrests: Two men and a mom at motel

Just a couple of days before the new year was rung in, two men and a mother were taken into custody at a Fort Myers motel. The Lee County Sheriff's Department said the men are each facing a series of weapons and drug charges after their arrests last week, while the woman is accused of child neglect.
