Man arrested for drug-related crimes in shopping plaza

According to a recent report, Pennsylvania detectives were reportedly conducting surveillance in a shopping plaza and arrested a man for drug possession. The detectives say that a vehicle parked in front of their unmarked police car and then a man got into the passenger seat of the car and sniffed heroin out of purple wax paper. The men got out of the vehicle when they saw the detectives' car, the detectives called for patrol officers and authorities detained the driver, who reportedly agreed to let them search his car.

DUI arrests and drunk driving accidents decline in Philadelphia

Driving under the influence is one of the most dangerous forms of driver negligence. Fortunately, Pennsylvania residents appear to be getting the message. The Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Report showed a 33 percent decline in drunk and drugged driving arrests in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2017. During the same period, the data shows a 13 percent decline in DUI arrests statewide.

Protecting your children if you worry about visitation

The judge awarded you primary custody of your children during the divorce, but you are still worried about the well-being of your children when they visit your ex. Like many other Pennsylvania parents, you have concerns that your ex is inattentive or doesn’t have your children’s best interests in mind during visitations. Is there anything you can do?

The Fourth Amendment protects against unlawful search and seizure

When an officer knocks on the front door of your house, stops you as you walk down the street or pulls you over while driving, there is a possibility that the officer will search your property for evidence of a crime. However, under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, you are protected from unlawful searches and seizures. A criminal defense attorney can help to ensure that your rights are protected.

Defending against drug possession charges

If you are charged with possession of an illegal substance, you may be concerned about what the future holds. Criminal defense attorneys help defend against drug charges. The defense strategy used in your case will depend on the facts surrounding your arrest, your criminal history and the quantity and type of substance allegedly in your possession.
