Working as part of a team can be a great way to work efficiently and achieve your goals. However, only teams that engage in legally acceptable behavior are worth being a part of. Recently, a group of Sacramento men were accused of co-conspiring in a drug trafficking scheme. They have officially been indicted in this alleged conspiracy and are facing several drug crimes.
A several months surveillance of the three men observed two of the men visiting the other at his home. During this stretch, authorities allege that the three men worked together to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine and other controlled substances from one man's Sacramento home. Upon a search of the home this month, authorities allege to have found an operation to convert cocaine to crack cocaine in the man's garage.
Elsewhere in the home, authorities reportedly discovered cocaine, crack cocaine, two pounds of methamphetamine, and even a nine mm handgun, which is prohibited due to the homeowner's previous felony conviction. Upon search of one of the men's vehicles shortly thereafter, more than 37 pounds of methamphetamine, six pounds of cocaine, a pound of crack cocaine and three firearms were allegedly discovered. The official charges include conspiring to distribute and possess cocaine and methamphetamine for distribution, among charges related to the firearms found on the property.
These are very serious felony-level drug charges which shouldn't be taken lightly by any of the defendants. Criminal charges such as these can range in severity of punishments. All three men have the right to employ a criminal defense strategy for the crimes they are accused of.
