Woman arrested on drug trafficking charges west of Toronto

They say when it rains it pours. Like a torrential downfall, sometimes drug charges come raining down on a person after a police raid. When this happens, the accused individual may feel as if he or she is drowning in legal troubles. A woman from west of Toronto knows this exact feeling after police entered her home recently and charged her with drug trafficking and other crimes.

The arrest happened on Feb. 9 at a home on Limeridge Road East in Hamilton. Shortly after 5:30 a.m., plainclothes officers entered the home after investigating tips provided about suspected drug activity in the neighbourhood. Numerous items, including allegedly stolen property, were recovered from the home. These items include toys, a guitar, a motorcycle and a stun gun, as well as marijuana and cocaine.

A 32-year-old woman was arrested during the raid. She was charged with one count of altering a vehicle identification number, one count of possession over $5,000, two counts of possession under $5,000, five counts of drug possession and five counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Police are investigating whether the allegedly stolen items are related to other cases in the city.

Facing so many serious charges all at once can be difficult to deal with. The important thing is not to let oneself become overwhelmed by the severity of the situation, and instead begin making an effort to handle matters as best as possible. Part of that strategy might be contacting a Toronto lawyer who has experience with drug trafficking charges to look at the case and help put together a strong defence.
