Two men in the Denton area face felony drug delivery charges after law enforcement found 73 grams of methamphetamines in one man’s sweatshirt. The men were subsequently taken to Denton City Jail and charged with the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance between four grams and 200 grams. Denton law enforcement learned that the man had planned to deliver methamphetamines to a person who lived in the 500 block of Londonderry Lane, and then saw the man arrived at the location. During a search, law enforcement found two bags with about 70 grams of methamphetamine inside one of the men’s sweatshirt. If a person in Texas provides illegal drugs to others, that person can be charged with drug delivery. Because these charges are very serious and can result in a person facing serious charges, it is important to obtain a seasoned attorney if you or are loved one is charged with this offense.
Understanding What Constitutes Delivery of Drugs
Delivery of drugs charges can be based on either actual or constructive delivery.
Actual delivery refers to situation in which one person transfers possession of an illegal drug to another person. For example, evidence demonstrating that a person performed a direct exchange with another constitutes actual activity.
