A New Jersey man was detained after police obtained a search warrant for his home in Glassboro on Sept. 5. Police were initially called to the man's home after learning that an altercation was taking place. The 21-year-old man reportedly suffered a minor head injury during the fight before police detained him on drug charges. Police say charges against other people involved in the incident are still pending.
When police pull over a vehicle, they may find that they have reason to file charges unrelated to why they may have originally pulled the individual over. A simple traffic infraction can then lead to much more serious charges against a driver or even passengers. Recently in New Jersey, a man was pulled over and ended up having drug charges filed against him.
People may assume police can only stop a vehicle when it is driving on the road in a way they deem suspicious or erratic or that they need a warrant to search any vehicle at any time. However, if the police see a vehicle in a parking lot and believe there is reason to stop the car, they can and often do. A police stop in a New Jersey led to a man facing drug charges after police believed there was reason to search the car.
