Couple facing drug charges allegedly used drone for drug delivery

A couple in California currently faces charges of dealing drugs from their home by utilizing a drone for making deliveries. The couple was arrested on drug charges following an undercover investigation by police. The man and woman are 39 and 31 years old respectively.

Police said they got a tip about illicit activity taking place at the couple's home and thus started surveillance of the house. They reportedly spotted a drone fly from the property's backyard to a nearby parking area. Then, a package was reportedly dropped from it.

Police reported that several individuals were apparently waiting for the package and ended up gathering the contents. Authorities then obtained a search warrant and served it on the couple on a Thursday morning. In the couple's home, police reportedly discovered hypodermic syringes that had been used, methamphetamine and powder that appeared to feature fentanyl. The couple has been charged with possessing drugs for sale (three counts), possessing drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.

Those facing drug charges in California may understandably be worried about what may happen to them if they are convicted. However, no conviction can be secured unless the prosecution can prove each element of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt -- a standard that is challenging to meet. Rather than going to trial to fight the charges, a defendant may seek to negotiate a plea deal with the hope of receiving lighter charges and therefore a more lenient sentence. An attorney can help the defendant in either scenario to pursue the most personally favorable outcome possible.
