Meth suspect busted on I-75

A Gray man has been arrested by Monroe County authorities after a ‘rolling meth lab’ was found in his vehicle. The full press release from Allison Selman-Willis, public information officer for the Monroe County S.O., follows: A Gray man was arrested by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office after a traffic stop on I-75 on May 12, 2011 around 4:15 p.m. David Moore, 54, was driving southbound on I-75 when a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed that he was not wearing a seatbelt. The deputy stopped the car, ran Moore’s driver’s license and the license came back suspended. The deputy arrested Moore for driving on a suspended license. While doing an inventory of Moore’s red Honda Del Sol, glass pipes used for smoking meth were found as well as a small amount of marijuana. The deputy noticed several items in the trunk of the vehicle that he suspected were used for manufacturing methamphetamine and made a request for assistance from the Forsyth-Monroe County Drug Task Force. The Honda was towed from I-75 to Tracy’s Auto Body Repair on Hwy. 83 for the Drug Task Force members and for Drug Enforcement Agency investigators (DEA) to inventory and investigate safely. As a result of the investigation it was determined that the Honda was not being used as a ‘rolling’ meth lab. David Moore was charged with driving on a suspended license, seatbelt violation, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, possession of drug related paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. Moore was released from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Jail on May 13, 2011 on a $15,000 property bond.
