Selma police make drug arrest

SELMA — Police officers here have arrested a 66-year-old man on drug charges.

Johnnie Moore of Selma was arrested Thursday and charged with first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance by members of the Selma Police Department Narcotics Unit.

Sgt. Doug Stewart, administrative division commander for the Selma Police Department, said officers with the unit acted on a tip from the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, saying someone had called the anonymous tip line to report a man selling drugs out of his vehicle in the 1300 block of Duke Street.

Members of the narcotics unit went to the are and observed the vehicle and man described in the tip.

“[Officers] questioned the occupant at which time he stated he did have drugs and was selling them,” said Stewart, “he then told officers where to find the drugs.”

Moore is in the Dallas County Jail under a $300,000 bond.
