During my career in law enforcement, I worked for six years as an undercover narcotics detective. I have investigated and arrested hundreds of individuals for possession, sale, trafficking, and manufacturing of marijuana, cocaine, MDMA (Ecstasy), methamphetamine, and prescription drugs.
I have the knowledge, training, and experience working complex investigations involving wire-tap investigations, search warrants, buy and bust operations, knock and talk encounters, indoor marijuana grow operations, and street-level hand-to-hand buys.
