Police raid home while man is on Facebook Live

A 22-year-old Florida man was using Facebook Live when police raided his home. While there, police found a handgun, ammunition and crack cocaine. They also discovered Oxycodin pills and drug paraphernalia. The man was reportedly filmed running out of a room after hearing police officers identity themselves outside of the home. According to the man's neighbors, multiple smoke grenades were thrown into the home, and they said that it sounded like bombs went off.

As a result of the raid, the man was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of weapons or ammunition by a convicted felon. It is possible that the video of the man holding up money could implicate him in one or more crimes. However, police say that they planned to execute the warrant even before they knew about the video.

People could be charged with drug possession or other crimes if controlled substances are found in their control. This generally means that the substance was found in that person's car, in that person's house or in an article of clothing that he or she may have been wearing. However, it may be possible to create a defense that may result in a plea bargain or a case being dismissed.

For instance, it may be possible for a criminal defense attorney to argue that the drugs in question didn't belong to the client. It may also be possible to assert that there was no probable cause for the search that led to the seizure of the drugs to be conducted. This may result in evidence being suppressed.
