Published 1:51am Saturday, September 14, 2013

Complete details remain unavailable from the Selma Police Department, but three people were arrested Friday, creating quite a stir, and nearly a traffic jam near the Firestone location on Broad Street.

Agents with the Selma Police Department’s drug unit and the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force announced the arrest of Travis A. Moss, 43, and Terrance M. Thomas, 33, both of whom are being held on a fugitive from justice charge and three federal court indictments.

Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley would not go into detail about the indictments, but said they were “drug related.”

The third arrest made Friday was 21-year-old Edna Cotina Furlow, who was arrested and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana and not having a permit to carry a firearm. She was being held at the Dallas County Jail under a $10,000 bond.

Thomas was arrested at the Selma Firestone location and will be held until he can be arraigned in federal court. Riley said Thomas is also facing state charges as well.

The scene surrounding Firestone for most of the morning, as agents — including drug dogs — took Thomas into custody and searched the area, drew hundreds of spectators along Selma’s busy thoroughfare Broad Street.

As for Moss, Riley said he will be held locally until he is transferred to a federal facility and arraigned.

All are being held at the Dallas County Jail.
