Bridge Drug Cases
Along bridges and checkpoints between El Paso, Texas, and Mexico, border patrol officers search cars, trucks and commercial vehicles for drugs and other illegal contraband. At checkpoints along I-10, individuals and vehicles are also subject to search as if it were a port of entry into the U.S.
At the Rosales Law Firm, we represent people from Texas, other states and Mexico who are stopped at these checkpoints and arrested for drug crimes and immigration violations. Our attorneys can represent you in local Texas courts after you get bond and leave the area or are held in a detention center. We handle both state and federal charges regarding any kind of drug offense.

When people are stopped at drug checkpoints and ports of entry, they are subject to search by drug-sniffing dogs and border patrol officers. If illegal drugs or too many prescription drugs are found in their possession, they may be charged with state or federal:
U.S. citizens will likely face either the charges above or perhaps drug smuggling or conspiracy charges. These are serious offenses. However, people who are not U.S. citizens face much more serious charges and penalties, including detention and deportation. Because we have handled immigration matters, we can offer you sound advice on any potential consequences for your immigration status.
