Fort Pierce Drug and Firearms Criminal Lawyer
A recent incident in Fort Pierce demonstrates the devastating effect Florida’s drug and gun laws can have on young people. Four teens, students at Fort Pierce Westwood High School and McCarty Middle, were arrested Monday night for possession of illegal guns and large quantities of drugs. The boys were stopped in their car on Avenue K around 1:00 AM Monday night after an anonymous tipster called police to report a “suspicious” vehicle. After glimpsing a black handgun, police searched the vehicle and found two more weapons and fifteen bags of marijuana. Thee of the teens have been taken to juvenile detention, while one sits in St. Lucie County Jail awaiting a $18,700 bond. All four face severe drug and firearms charges which could lead to years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
