March 22, 2016During an investigation into a Miami Beach drug trafficking ring, our client was arrested for cocaine trafficking. Miami Beach narcotics detectives entered a Miami Beach apartment to question suspected cocaine dealers. While in the apartment, narcotics detectives spoke to with the tenants regarding the delivery of a shipment of cocaine. The police waited for our client in the street, drew their badges and guns and dragged our client from his car. The police recovered a kilo of cocaine from a hidden compartment in the vehicle. The lawyers at DMT filed a motion to suppress the cocaine. As a result of an illegal stop and seizure, the judge suppressed all of the evidence in the cases, including the kilo of cocaine. With no evidence to prosecute the case, the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office dismissed the cocaine trafficking case against our client.
