Woman busted for drugs in El Paso hotel

On Aug. 22, Texas authorities arrested a woman after drugs were allegedly found in her hotel room. The incident took place in Northeast El Paso.

According to the El Paso Police Department, officers were called to a Superlodge located at 9487 Dyer at approximately 7:30 p.m. Once there, they reportedly entered a guest room and found multiple people using a variety of illegal drugs. A search of the room turned up 11 grams of methamphetamine, 5 grams of cocaine, a small amount of marijuana, several glass pipes, a scale and a grinder. A 9mm handgun was also found.

A 40-year-old woman was taken into custody and transported to the El Paso County Jail for processing. She has been charged with possession of a controlled substance for the methamphetamine, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance for the cocaine and possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. She has been additionally charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Her bond has been set $25,300.

Texas authorities take drug charges very seriously. Individuals convicted of drug crimes are frequently sentenced to long prison terms and assessed hefty fines. Once defendants regain their freedom, they are left with a permanent criminal record, which can impede efforts to find employment. In order to obtain a better outcome, many defendants choose to work with a criminal defense attorney. The attorney might review the case for signs that police violated a defendant's constitutional rights during search and seizure, which may invalidate some of the evidence. Legal counsel might also cross-examine witnesses and work to cast doubt on the prosecution's case, which may help get the charges reduced or dismissed.
