Drug charges filed against alleged drive-thru operators

Police in Ocala became suspicious when four people suffered drug overdoses in a particular area. An investigation ensued that ultimately led to the arrest of a Florida couple who is now facing several drug charges. Reportedly, an undercover police officer made a controlled substance purchase at the house that was suspected to be the origin of drugs that led to the overdoses.

A spokesperson for the Ocala Police Department says officers searched a mobile home toward the end of August. A police report indicates that the search yielded prepackaged fentanyl in foil, a digital scale and plastic bags. Officers allege the couple who occupies the mobile home had signs that were used to indicate when they were open for business.

Police claim the kitchen window was used as a drive-thru facility for customers to purchase controlled substances. Furthermore, authorities allege the investigation also revealed that the couple sold heroin that was laced with fentanyl. The man and the woman were arrested and charged with possession, dealing and other drug-related charges.

When anyone in Florida is arrested for drug charges, the best thing to do is to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Having a lawyer present during police interviews and questioning can prevent violations of the accused individual's legal rights. A lawyer can scrutinize the details of the procedures used during the undercover purchase as well as the search and seizure methods and the arrest itself. If any irregularities occurred, the lawyer could address them appropriately. The attorney will advocate for the accused individual and endeavor to obtain the most favorable outcome.
