Trafficking in Drugs charges DISMISSED after a Motion to Suppress was Granted
Officers determined to have no reasonable articulable suspicion and a Motion to Suppress was Granted by the Superior Court of Cherokee County.
The Defendant was driving with friends at night looking for a certain business when Woodstock Police effectuated a traffic stop. The Defendant consented to a search of the vehicle and located a significant amount of narcotics and weapons. In response, the Issa Law Firm filed a motion to suppress all of the evidence that was retrieved from the vehicle. The Issa Law Firm argued that the police did not have a valid reason for initiating the traffic stop and thus, the evidence found during the search should be suppressed. The Court agreed and suppressed all evidence found during the search. Following the Court’s Order, the prosecutor proceeded to dismiss all charges.
