Woman faces drug charges after being searched by police

Being arrested is a humiliating thing to experience. This experience can be absolutely frightening when the arrested individual is hit with drug charges. Police in McHenry recently arrested an Illinois woman after receiving an anonymous report. Apparently, she has been charged with several criminal offenses.

According to reports, police received an anonymous call about a suspicious person in the parking lot of a Walgreens store. Police reports say a vehicle was located that matched the description left by the caller and police initiated a traffic stop. Reportedly, police conducted a search of the woman and her vehicle and found drugs.

Police said they discovered drug paraphernalia and less than a gram of cocaine. There was also a person younger than 18 years of age in the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop, according to police reports. Police placed the woman under arrest. She was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing or delivering cocaine and child endangerment, police said.

The ramifications of drug charges can be life-altering and absolutely devastating. Even though those arrested are presumed innocent until and unless proved guilty in a court of law, the thought of spending years behind bars is enough to induce sleepless nights filled with worry and anxiety on any person. Those in Illinois who are arrested and face criminal charges have the right to seek legal counsel. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help protect individual rights while increasing the chances of obtaining the best outcome in this extremely stressful and difficult situation.
