Investigators say they were working on a particular case for several months. On Valentine's Day, police officers were dispatched to four different Wisconsin residences, all within the same general region. The officers reportedly carried warrants that granted them permission to search the homes in question. The searches led to nine arrests for suspicion of drug crimes.
If a Wisconsin police officer arrests someone and he or she winds up facing criminal charges, it does not necessarily mean a conviction will be handed down if the case goes to trial. People often make the mistake of discussing such matters as though merely being formally accused of drug crimes or other illegal activities means that anything and everything reported about the incident is fact. To the contrary, not only are investigators capable of error, any number of issues, such as lack of evidence or proof of personal rights violations, may result in avoidance of conviction or even a case dismissal.
Wisconsin police often patrol in or near community parks. Most parks post signs listing rules, such as when a park is open to the public or closed, what people may or may not bring into it and other regulations. If police suspect that a person has disobeyed park rules or has committed a criminal offense, such as drug crimes in or near a park that children frequent, they may further investigate to determine if they have probable cause to make an arrest.
When Wisconsin prosecutors file criminal charges against someone, it does not necessarily mean that he or she will go to jail. In fact, it does not necessarily mean that he or she will even be convicted. Sometimes, multiple charges are filed, as in the case of a 39-year-old man who faced charges in September for drug crimes.
According to investigators who have been working on a case for two years, Wisconsin has been a prime location for illegal drug activity. Police say they recently made multiple arrests on suspicion of drug crimes. These arrests were direct results of the 24-month drug task force investigation. All of those arrested are currently facing criminal charges that are listed as felony crimes.
As happens to any number of Wisconsin motorists on a given day, a man was recently pulled over by a traffic cop. Events that unfolded from there resulted in the man's arrest. Police not only claim he committed a traffic violation, but they also suspect him of drug crimes.
Police say they just happened to be in the neighborhood to conduct a search of an empty house when they witnessed several people exhibiting suspicious behavior nearby. One person apparently entered a parked vehicle that contained the other two people involved. All three people are now facing charges for suspected drug crimes in Wisconsin.
A person could be out in public in Wisconsin one minute, then facing serious legal problems the next. This is especially so in situations where police claim to recognize someone as a person with a warrant out for his or her arrest. A man was out and about on a recent Monday in Baraboo, and is now facing serious charges for suspected drug crimes.
It appears that meth use may be on the rise in the Midwest.
