Trust Stroebel & Stroebel to Represent You on Drug Charges

As with DUI, when you or a loved one face arrest on drug-related charges, there are many aspects to the case to analyze:

  • Was the arrest performed legitimately?
  • Are you charged with a misdemeanor or felony?
  • Is this a first offense, or part of a history of charges?
  • What were the circumstances surrounding the substance?
  • How did the narcotics or substance come into your possession, allegedly?

If your offense relates to operating a vehicle under the influence, please see our page on DUI and DWI charges for more information.

Drug Trafficking and Enforcement Crackdowns in WV

In West Virginia, as with much of the country in recent years, there are targeted enforcement operations and other crackdowns to stem the tide of dugs in local communities. County, state, and federal law enforcement operations may target individual offenders. Police may apprehend groups or gangs involved in distributing narcotics and other controlled substances. These could be part of a wider net of enforcement or ‘drug sweep.’ In all, these crackdowns can result in one or more persons being arrested. Criminal offenses could range from being an associate or accomplice to trafficking, possession, distribution, and more. Police may also seize personal property and vehicles as part of a drug raid or crackdown.
