Can someone be charged with drugs found in a vehicle that is not there own, when there was also another person in the vehicle who ran and was not caught?
Do they have a case against him?

Can they? The obvious answer is yes, they can. If you're asking will they, that depends upon state law and the specific facts and circumstances. As a general proposition, if there are drugs in a car, everyone in the car is presumed to possess it unless proven otherwise.

This issue is hard to determine without having the detailed facts of the situation. If you have not done so already, I suggest you consult with a local Criminal Defense Lawyer to advise you of your rights if you have been charged with a drug offense. You may also wish to visit the Criminal Law Center and read Search and Seizure as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter.
