Is Your Neighbor Manufacturing and Selling Drugs?

Suspecting your neighbors are manufacturing and selling drugs out of their home can be a tricky subject to navigate. Do they constantly have different people over for short periods of time? Is there a distinct pungent smell emanating from their home? If your hunch is right, your neighbor is possibly putting you and your family at risk of exposure to untoward activity.

If you have reason to believe your neighbor is using their home to manufacture and sell drugs, it’s vital you reach out and receive professional help immediately in the form of your local police.  Never put yourself at risk of violent confrontation or harm. In order to make an educated decision on whether or not to inform the local police, Fighter Law has put together a guide on how to tell if your neighbor is possibly trafficking drugs. 

How to Tell If Your Neighbor Is Manufacturing and Selling Drugs

When it comes to making the decision on whether or not to alert the police of your neighbor’s suspicious activity, there are a few key factors to consider: 

  • Have you noticed an unusual amount of foot traffic around the house? 
  • Have they installed unusual safety precautions, like blackout windows, raised fencing, or numerous security cameras?
  • Can you smell anything noxious radiating from their general vicinity? 
  • Have you noticed any paraphernalia laying around their home, such as discarded syringes or small plastic bags? 

All of the mentioned are typically good indicators of illegal drug trafficking and distribution. If possible to safely do so, consider snapping photographic evidence of any discarded paraphernalia around the house, but never do anything that puts you or your family at risk. At this point, the only thing to do is alert the police and let them handle the next steps. 

What to Do if You Are Falsely Accused of Trafficking Drugs

On the other hand, it’s easy to find yourself at the receiving end of false accusations. While the previously mentioned factors can lend themselves to suspicious activity, they don’t immediately equate to genuine drug trafficking charges. Florida takes drug trafficking accusations very seriously, and it’s not unlikely they will inspect any tip for potential distribution. As things escalate, you can find yourself facing false charges as well as violations of your civil rights. 

If this is the case, it’s imperative you speak with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Even if you are caught with a small amount of drugs, you may be charged with intent to distribute. A dedicated attorney can help by challenging the search warrant and gathering evidence to prove your character and that you had no intention of distributing. Under Florida law, drug trafficking is considered a first-degree felony. This comes with severe penalties, including up to a possible 30 years in prison.
