New Jersey man facing drug charges for heroin found in wallet

Criminal cases involving drug charges can arise in some of the most unusual situations. For instance, one New Jersey man recently popped up on police radar after he allegedly left his wallet in the bathroom of a gas station in Pennsylvania. Though this may seem like a perfectly innocent situation, the wallet was said to have several individually wrapped bundles of heroin inside of it.

According to the reports, the 26-year-old man's wallet was found when an employee of the gas station in question was doing some routine cleaning. The employee had cleaned the bathroom at about 1:30 in the morning on August 15, and then again about two hours later. The first time the employee cleaned the bathroom it was empty. The second time, two hours later, the employee found the wallet.

Police officers reportedly looked at the gas station's security camera to see who entered the bathroom during that two hour timespan, and it was determined that the only person who did so was the 26-year-old New Jersey man. The man was subsequently arrested and is now facing drug crimes charges.

Those accused of drug crimes face serious consequences, especially when there is video evidence being used against them. Being found guilty of a drug crime could result in years of prison time and a myriad of fines. However, with a vigorous and aggressive defense strategy, it may be possible to lessen some of these charges, or get them dismissed altogether. With a successful defense, these people may be able to move forward in their lives, free from the debilitating consequences that can result from a guilty sentence.
