A man from another country is now facing serious charges after being fingered in a heroin trafficking scheme, according to local news sources. The 30-year-old has been charged with felony drug crime charges, including trafficking and transporting heroin. These charges come at the end of a long investigation by Nevada police based in Mesquite.

According to the report, detectives have made several purchases of large volumes of heroin from the alleged drug trafficker who is believed to have been transporting the drug into Mesquite. On June 22, they responded to tips that he would supposedly be transporting another large load of the drug into the city. The details of the sting operation were not included in the report, but the result was the apprehension of the now accused man.

Officers say they were able to take the man into custody without any bloodshed, and they also say they retrieved a large amount of heroin during the sting. The exact amount of the alleged substance was not listed in the report. The man, who is from Mexico, is now booked into a detention center in Las Vegas. No trial date has yet been released to the public.

Drug crime allegations can be tricky to prove in court, since sting operations often run the risk of straying into territory in which the rights of the accused are violated. Prosecutors will have to prove that the man was indeed transporting heroin for the purpose of sale, but also that the conduct of Nevada law enforcement throughout the investigation did not impede the man’s rights. If his rights were violated in any manner, it could seriously influence the outcome of the case.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
