MBN Charges Philadelphia Man

The Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics says an 18-month drug investigation in Neshoba County led to the arrest of Calvin Wesley Moore, 56, of 12591 Road 571 in Philadelphia.

MBN director Marshall Fisher said Moore faces charges of possession of marijuana and possession of cocaine stemming from a search warrant executed at his home Thursday.

Moore is also charged with nine counts of sale of cocaine and marijuana resulting from undercover operations in the ongoing investigation.

Officers seized three pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $3,200 and nearly an ounce of cocaine with an estimated street value of $800. The suspect's home was also seized, along with a pickup truck, and $3,000 cash.

The Neshoba, Leake, and Winston county sheriff's departments assisted.
