Coweta County Traffic Stop Results in Felony Drug Arrest

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 20, 2020 | 0 Comments

Coweta County, Ga. - As a Georgia DUI Lawyer, I often explain how routine traffic stops result in more serious criminal investigations. An example of this happened just last week in Coweta County.

Officers pulled a driver over for speeding on Interstate-85 which resulted in a search of the man's car. He consented to the search after police asked. He was allegedly acting suspiciously. Officers conducted an in-depth search of the vehicle which resulted in the discovery of five pounds of cocaine hidden within the car's air intake.

The driver was booked in the Coweta County jail on charges of speeding and trafficking cocaine.

In today's post, I will outline the different examples of DUI related offenses, and how these offenses can result in more serious charges, just like the story above.

These are just a few examples of routine traffic stops. Unless stopped at a Georgia DUI Roadblock, then a driver accused of DUI is also facing other traffic violations.
