Woman faces drug charges after search of personal property

Being arrested and charged with a criminal offense is one of the most humiliating things a Colorado resident can experience. It goes without saying that any criminal charge is a serious matter. However, drug charges in particular are often some of the most serious offenses. Unfortunately, those who are arrested on drug charges not only face many years of incarceration, but their reputations and lives are often forever damaged. Recently, a woman was arrested in Weld County after police allegedly found drugs in her purse when she visited a jail.

According to reports, the woman visited the Weld County Jail around 10 p.m. to post bond for a friend. After leaving the building, the woman apparently realized that she had left her purse and called the jail to report her lost property. Reports said a sergeant with the sheriff’s office was tasked to find and retrieve the purse. Allegedly, the sergeant located the purse and searched inside in an attempt to find an identification card or other documentation to indicate who the purse belonged to.

The sergeant found a bag inside a zipped pocket that contained a crystallized substance which later tested positive as meth, according to allegations. Reportedly, the woman returned to the jail the next day to retrieve her purse. Police said she was arrested on charges of drug possession, suspicion of drug distribution and other charges.

Even though this woman was arrested and charged, she has not been convicted of these alleged crimes. In the state of Colorado, individuals who face drug charges have options that can help them to achieve the best outcome possible, such as the right to seek legal counsel. A seasoned and knowledgeable litigator can provide much-needed guidance and protect the personal rights of those accused.
