LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The Laurel Narcotics Division arrested a suspect in downtown for drugs Monday.

Shawn Moore, 37, was arrested after officials served a search warrant to a home on West 20th Street.

According to officials, Moore was allegedly found with six bags of marijuana and a set of scales used to weigh drugs before selling.

He has been charged with sale of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Moore will have his bond set on Wednesday, but officials predict that it will be revoked since he was out on bond from a previous charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
