If I was arrested on a drug charge and asked to assist with the arrest of several other in exchange of being released and did not cooperate as agreed... Can they issue a warrant and later charge me with the crime committed?

Yes; you may be formally charged for the offense anytime within the applicable statute of limitations (four years for state drug offenses, five years for federal drug offenses).

It happens more than you might think. You should consider retaining legal counsel as soon as possible. Many lawyers charge modest fees for in depth consultations. This might be helpful to you as you weigh you options.
