Twin brothers from Vero Beach are facing an assortment of drug charges pursuant to police raids on their apartments late last week. Arrest records indicate that police discovered cocaine and at least a dozen marijuana plants. The brothers lived next door to each other on the 2200 block of 11th Avenue. Following this arrest, they will require the services of a Indian River drug trafficking lawyer.
Inside one apartment, police allegedly found 60 grams of cocaine, more than 12 marijuana plants and 41 grams of marijuana. The occupant of that unit allegedly told police that the cocaine was a diet supplement that was given to him by a cocaine dealer. In a search of the other brother’s apartment, police discovered 11 marijuana plants that were about a foot tall and 105 grams of marijuana. One of the brothers was charged with cocaine trafficking. Both of them were charged with growing marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. One of the two remained in the Indian River County Jail on a bail of $165,000. The other brother was released from custody after posting a $10,500 bail. There is no indication as to whether search warrants were issued for the two apartments. If warrants were issued, an experienced Indian River criminal defense lawyer can review and evaluate the warrants and any affidavits in support of them for defects.
