Missouri man detained for drugs after alleged car theft

A Missouri man is being held in the Schuyler County Jail after an alleged car theft, according to the Schuyler County Sheriff. The sheriff stated that Iowa police contacted him on June 3 alleging that a car sold to a Centerville scrap yard was the same vehicle that had been reported stolen in Lancaster the previous day. The man in question was detained after the sheriff obtained surveillance footage from the scrap yard.

When the sheriff arrived at the man's house, he reportedly discovered the man to be in possession of illegal drugs and paraphernalia. He claims that the man admitted to both stealing and selling the car and to smoking methamphetamine just prior to the sheriff's arrival. The man now faces criminal charges including possession of a controlled substance and stealing, both Class C Felonies, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class D Felony. He also faces misdemeanor marijuana charges.

The defendant in this case may face up to seven years imprisonment for each of the Class C Felonies and up to four years imprisonment for the Class D Felony if he is convicted. Persons charged with felony offenses should seek legal counsel in order to explore their legal options and mount a defense against the charges.

In this instance, a criminal defense attorney might question the legality of the sheriff's seizure of controlled substances and paraphernalia from the defendant's residence. Since seized drugs and equipment are generally the central pieces of evidence in drug prosecutions, the attorney could significantly weaken the case against their client by rendering the drugs and equipment inadmissible at trial.
