Minnesota man charged with alleged drug crime

Seeking an effective way to handle a legal predicament may be on the mind of a man who was recently taken into custody in Minnesota. Reports stated that the man is facing drug crime charges after he was approached by officers at a traffic stop. The officers apparently searched the man's vehicle, though it was unclear what may have prompted the stop and subsequent search.

During the stop, police reportedly found methamphetamine and a handgun. Reports stated that there were 30 grams of meth. It was not specifically detailed where in the vehicle the drugs and weapon were allegedly found. The report went on to indicate that the handgun had purportedly been stolen from another county. It also stated that the man is a convicted felon and does not have the legal right to possess a gun. 

The situation resulted in the man being arrested. He is currently facing federal charges for possession of a stolen firearm as a felon, first-degree drug possession and second-degree sale of a controlled substance. The man had already made an initial court appearance at the time of the report.

The Minnesota man may wish to gain as much assistance as possible as he works to address the charges filed against him. Legal professionals who are knowledgeable when it comes to drug crime may provide useful information on the charges and proceedings he is likely to face. Consulting with an experienced attorney may allow him to see his options more clearly and determine the most viable courses of action.
