Two men accused of dealing drugs from local hotel

Two men were arrested in Virginia on April 17 for allegedly dealing drugs out of the Country Inn and Suites in Hampton. After complaints were called into the police about alleged drug activity at the hotel on Hardy Cash Drive, police obtained search warrants for two rooms at the property.

When local police searched the rooms, they allegedly found drug paraphernalia, including digital scales and multiple cell phones, as well as controlled substances. Police reported seizing 49 pounds of marijuana, LSD blotter tabs, ounces of cocaine, two bags of MDMA and related documents. In the rooms, police arrested a 31-year-old man and a 33-year-old man, both from Flushing, New York.

The two men are facing a number of drug charges, including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of LSD with intent to distribute and possession of MDMA with intent to distribute. They are also accused of transporting five or more pounds of marijuana or more than one ounce of cocaine into Virginia from outside the Commonwealth and conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana.

While this case may be distinguished by the hotel location, many people across the state face drug charges on a daily basis. Drug charges are always serious and can have severe consequences, including jail or prison time, costly fines and a felony criminal record that can affect employment, housing and other opportunities. First-time marijuana possession offenders can face some significant penalties, even though marijuana possession is one of only a few misdemeanor drug charges in the state.

People who are charged with drug offenses in Virginia may benefit from turning to a criminal defense lawyer for help. A defense lawyer may be able to challenge the evidence and work to avoid conviction for their client.
