I-40 Drug Checkpoints

I-40 Drug Checkpoints in Arizona

Drug Crimes Attorneys in Kingman

Throughout Arizona, there has been an increased severity in the amount of pressure that is placed on law enforcement to crack down on drug crimes. Although many people are unaware, the I-40 highway has become one of the nation’s busiest highways in regards to drug-related crimes such as trafficking. For this reason, Arizona law enforcement officials have taken to random drug checkpoints to those who are driving along this highway, focusing especially on those who are driving with out-of-state licenses.

There are also more permanent checkpoints set up by the Border Patrol that ask vehicles to slow down or even stop. At these checkpoints, there are agents, trained dogs and devices to check the cars and trucks to ensure that they are not hiding drugs. Law enforcement officers utilize everything from mirrors to gamma ray technology.

If you have been subjected to one of these checkpoints and charged with such drug crimes as possession, trafficking, or distribution, is absolutely vital that you do not hesitate to secure the necessary legal assistance from an aggressive lawyer. The penalties for conviction of such a crime will severely limit your personal freedoms and can have a negative impact upon your relationships, employment, and standing in the community. You cannot risk your case in the hands of a public defender; you must retain effective representation as soon as possible.
