Two people were arrested in Pleasant Hill on Feb. 5 for alleged involvement in drug activity, according to local police. Illinois authorities detained a 37-year-old woman and the 36-year-old man for alleged drug crimes, including possession of methamphetamine. No trial date was referenced in the report.
According to police, a search warrant was issued for the couple's home in Pleasant Hill. Officers searched the premises as of 3 p.m., and they say they seized a variety of possible drug-related items. This list included drug paraphernalia, currency of an unknown amount, plastic baggies consistent with resale and prescription medications. No mention was made of methamphetamine being discovered in the home.
The couple were arrested and charged. The man faces charges of possession of methamphetamine as well as unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He was recently released from prison and is still under supervised release by the Department of Corrections. The woman faces charges of unlawful delivery and possession of methamphetamine, as well as unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. These arrests were made as part of an ongoing initiative to curb drug activity in Illinois.
Drug crimes of this nature are taken very seriously by Illinois law enforcement. If either party is found guilty on any of the filed charges, he or she could face jail time. However, the constitutional rights for both accused individuals guarantees them their "day in court," where they will be able to face the charges with the support of criminal defense attorneys who will fight for the best possible outcomes.
