Drug Arrests on Arizona Highways (Drug Interdiction)

Interstate 40 (I-40), Transportation of Narcotic Drugs, Transportation of Dangerous Drugs and Transportation of Marijuana For Sale:I-40-Marijuana-Bust

Interstate 40 is a highly trafficked area starting at the western border of Arizona in Mohave County and stretching across the length of the state to Apache County on the eastern border.   Many out of state travelers are profiled by law enforcement officers  and are stopped for minor traffic offenses (following too closely or an illegal lane change) and end up being charged with transportation of marijuana, possession of marijuana or danger drug charges.   

Profiling is done when a law enforcement officer looks for someone traveling alone, a vehicle with out of state plates, or simply driving a rental vehicle on the interstate.  Once the officer has detained the driver he will ask  for consent to a search the vehicle.  If consent is not granted he will then contact a canine (K-9) officer to perform a  dog search.   This is when a person needs an experienced marijuana criminal lawyer who has successfully defended clients against of an illegal search and seizure.
