Investigations Involving Customs, the DEA, FBI, or ATF

Help From an Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Attorney

Being investigated by a government agency can spell serious trouble for any business or individual. Many businesses rely on their reputation to gain new customers and keep the ones they have. When the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) starts investigating your operation, your reputation may be compromised. Potential customers and business associates may view the investigation as a sign that you are no longer trustworthy. There is simply too much on the line.

Defending Yourself During Federal Investigations

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) are government bureaus and agencies who have jurisdiction over customs regulation and enforcement.

Some common offenses that could result in a federal investigation include:

  • Importing illegal substances and drugs into the Unites States
  • Importing or exporting stolen goods, items, or property
  • Attempting to bring exotic species, endangered animals or other plants and wildlife into the country
  • Traveling into or out of the country with pharmaceuticals without declaring the drugs or having a valid prescription
  • Filing false claims for the payment on goods imported or exported
  • Importing or exporting goods without the proper visa or quota
