Though apartment buildings can be an affordable place to live for many individuals, it may seem at times as if those residents have little privacy. Neighbors may often be asking questions or seemingly being nosy, and it can be a nuisance at times. Of course, if neighbors suspect that criminal activity is taking place, they could make reports with the police department, and criminal charges could result in some instances.
One man in Georgia may be blaming nosy neighbors after he was recently taken into custody. According to reports, authorities carried out a search warrant at the man’s apartment as part of a month-long investigation. The investigation reportedly began after tips were made from citizens as well as other law enforcement officials about possible drug-related activity taking place at the apartment.
The man was taken into custody on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. The search allegedly uncovered the following items in the apartment:
- Drug packaging materials
- Drug paraphernalia
Drug-related criminal charges may seem commonplace to some, but they could come with life-changing consequences in the event of a conviction. As a result, this Georgia man will undoubtedly want to explore his defense options in hopes of combatting the allegations as well as possible. Though his situation may seem unfair or even unjust to him, approaching it from a logical perspective and thoroughly assessing his case may allow him to find his best course of action for moving forward.
