Drug charges may follow car crashing into New Hampshire home

As soon as a New Hampshire individual has reason to believe he or she is being investigated for criminal charges, it may be wise to be proactive and seek legal counsel. With legal guidance, the person can be prepared for what might follow if he or she is arrested on, for example, drug charges, and also what legal options will be available for the particular circumstances. Such steps may be appropriate for a New Hampshire resident on whose property police recently discovered what they suspected to be a marijuana growing operation.

Reportedly, the suspected operation was reportedly discovered by accident when a neighbor accidentally smashed through a wall in the man's house. The car apparently came to halt several feet into a bedroom, and when officers came to check the level of structural damage caused, they discovered what appeared to be a false wall. Hidden by the wall was an alleged marijuana growing operation housing some plants, a sophisticated ventilation system and duct work along with a dedicated lighting system.

According to the homeowner, the walls labeled as false walls by law enforcement officers were part of a new bathroom construction, and the plants were not marijuana but plants being grown to be transplanted into his garden when they are ready. No charges had been filed, but an investigation is underway. The suspected marijuana plants were sent to a laboratory for testing.

Drug charges are always serious, and the consequences if a conviction is obtained can be significant. The charges and potential sentences of incarceration can have a lasting impact on the criminal record of any convicted individual. So, even if a person only suspects that he or she is the subject of an investigation, hiring an experienced New Hampshire criminal defense attorney to provide dedicated representation can be crucial.
