Authorities take 3 into custody on drug charges

Three people were taken into custody after authorities raided Kingdom Kutz Barber Shop in Hiram, Georgia. The raid was the result of an investigation that lasted several months and resulted in search warrants being executed on April 4. Authorities found cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy as well as psilocybin mushrooms. They also found a .40 caliber semi-automatic gun, ammunition and accessories designed for use with weapons.

Those who were taken into custody included a 53-year-old man, a 36-year-old man and a 28-year-old man. All three were charged with possession of cocaine. The 53-year-old was also charged with a count of possession of psilocybin mushrooms. Additionally, the 36-year-old faces charges of possession of MDMA with intent to distribute and possession of methamphetamine. Police say that they are still investigating and that more charges are likely to be filed.

Individuals who are charged with drug offenses may face a variety of penalties if they are convicted. These penalties may include jail time, a fine or community service. Probation may also be part of any sentence handed down by a judge. It may be a good idea to talk with an attorney in an effort to create a defense to the charges that an individual may face.

Legal counsel may be able to argue that an individual was not in possession of a controlled substance or did not have control over it. It may also be possible to argue that there was no intent to distribute it to another person or entity. This may result in a plea deal being reached that may reduce or eliminate some or all the drug charges that a defendant may face.
