Many drug arrests arise from routine traffic stops. Often, police officers stop a motorist on an unrelated issue, such as speeding or a nonfunctioning brake light. The police officer may then ask to search the vehicle, but they need probable cause to do so, and unfortunately, most drivers consent to a search without knowing they have the option to say no. If you refused to consent to the search and the police officer performed one anyway, contact an attorney promptly. Moreover, if your passenger had drugs in the vehicle without your knowledge and you were arrested because drugs were found, our attorneys fight to protect your rights and seek to have the charges dismissed.
