Virginia auto dealer arrested on felony drug charges

Facing criminal charges does not only mean the accused could endure serious criminal penalties but could also suffer damage to their personal and professional reputation. For some, allegations alone could hurt business relationships and how they are viewed in the public eye. Thus, it is important to take these matters seriously, as an aggressive criminal defense could help the accused clear their name and avoid harsh penalties.

According to recent reports, the owner of Crown Motors in Chesterfield County was arrested on felony drug charges. According to Virginia police, he was accused of selling heroin and cocaine from his home in Chesdin Landing. Reports indicate that a police informant allegedly purchased a quarter ounce of heroine and just over a quarter ounce of crack cocaine from the accused, later informing authorities of this purchase.

A search was then conducted of the suspect's home. During this search, police claim that drugs, cash, drug scales, two computers, an iPad and a phone were recovered. A warrant was then obtained to search the man's business.

The suspect was charged with three counts of possession with the intent to distribute drugs and knowingly permitting or maintain a common nuisance at a residence. As a result of these charges, the Virginia Secretary of the Commonwealth informed the man that his services are no longer needed on the Virginia Motor Vehicle Dealer Board.

Drug charges are serious charges. It is vital that defendants treat them as such. By initiating a criminal defense, those accused of drug charges could have the charges against them reduced or dismissed, helping them clear their name and avoid harsh criminal consequences.
