3 arrested for drug-related crimes in Sullivan County

When you're on probation or are performing community service in lieu of a prison sentence, it's important to make sure you follow the rules of that probation. If you violate probation, then you could face further charges and incarceration. That's what may happen in this case in which at least three people are facing charges for drug crimes.

According to the news from May 3, two Sullivan County employees along with a community service worker were arrested when they were connected to illegal acts at the Sullivan County Transfer Station. It's alleged that they were involved in illegal drug activity. The employees were responsible for supervising the workers at the site.

All the workers at the site were there performing community service. The authorities were informed that methamphetamine, marijuana and prescription medications were being sold at the site. During an investigation into the Sullivan County Transfer Station, the police reported that they gave drug tests to 12 offenders who were performing community service. Of those 12, seven tested positive for illegal drug use.

Three people, a 26-year-old woman, 47-year-old man and 48-year-old man, were arrested. Two of them, employees, have been charged for possessing Schedule II drugs. One has also been charged with the possession of Schedule VI drugs and drug paraphernalia additionally. Both were booked into jail on bond.

One of the community service workers was charged with the possession of drug paraphernalia as well as the possession of Schedule II, III and IV drugs. This case is ongoing, so the police could place additional charges and arrest others.

Situations like this can pull innocent people into a mess with the law. If you're accused of possessing or using drugs in relation to someone else's arrest, you can speak with your attorney about the ways you can defend yourself.
