Routine checkpoint results in two drug arrests in George County | Crime
Two George County suspects were arrested on drug charges following a routine checkpoint in the Merrill Community in George County on Friday.
According to the George County Sheriff's Office, Detective Trey Collins and Deputy Adam Reus were conducting the checkpoints when they found drugs in two different vehicles.
Twenty-two-year-old Barry Moody was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Officials said, Moody's arrest is the result of driving without a license and the discovery of two large bags of, what appeared to be, marijuana hidden in his vehicle's gas cap.
Thirty-two-year-old Ronnie Moye was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance after, authorities said, deputies discovered a controlled substance in his vehicle. Deputy Reus also reportedly witnessed several black bags of spice thrown out of Moye's vehicle before he approached the checkpoint.
Both vehicles were impounded.
Moye and Moody are being held at George County Regional Jail awaiting an appearance in court.
