The story does not say what

The story does not say what precipitated the traffic stop or what cause the officers had to search their vehicles or persons. Without this information the story is incomplete.

Probable Cause

It would be nice if the story told us what characteristics or behavior gave police probable cause to search the vehicle.

The article states that the husband was charged with four counts of sale of methamphetamine and oxycodone. Apparently, he had been under surveilance.

You could always find out when the court date is and attend the trial.

Operative word is "worked", as in Roxann Gebhart, who worked for Correct Care Solutions. Guess she won't be for long. Wonder what HE does for a living ??

Cause

Thanks, David. The story said they were stopped for a traffic violation, then the next thing we read is that they were arrested for narcotics found in the car. What led police to search the car? Did the driver consent, or did the police have a warrant prior to the traffic stop? Did police see a suspicious packet lying in plain sight inside the car while writing out the traffic ticket? The story could be made so much more complete with so little extra effort.

When the media doesn't pay

When the media doesn't pay attention to the probable cause (or it never existed), then it becomes commonplace for LEO's to infringe on your 4th Amendment Right. Eventually, we won't have the option to fight it, we'll just accept it. For further reading, see 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms infringement circa 2013.

I suspect the courts play a much larger role in determinations of search legality than the media.

Drugs Bad Sober good.

I doubt these criminals will get more than a slap on the wrist. I could be wrong and I hope I am because those are some heavy duty drugs these cats were dealing.

The media is "slanting" when

The media is "slanting" when info is left out/missing. Courts will carry on as they do and if nobody is made aware of an injustice, then they just inch closer to supremacy. Trust is not a principle the Bill of Rights intended upon, which is precisely why comprehensive information is so important as LL was pointing out. Nobody is saying drug-dealers should get a pass or loophole-out. I'm saying there should be available information to put the arrest into context so we all can build a better relationship with our law enforcement.
