Traffic Stop Leads to Narcotics Arrest

    The traffic stop was related to an investigation by the Bi-State Narcotics Task Force.

    Members of the Bi-State Narcotics Task Force on Thursday, January 12, 2023, conducted a search warrant on Anthony Moore’s residence in Texarkana, Arkansas. During the search warrant, investigators located 584 grams (approximately 1.2 pounds) of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia used for weighing and separating narcotics. Moore was arrested for Trafficking Methamphetamine and three deliveries of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

    Ofc. Jesse Mathis and Rec. Kendall Nichols conducted a traffic stop related to the investigation by the task force and the passenger in the vehicle admitted to possibly having a small amount of marijuana on his person. Officers further interviewed and identified the passenger, 54-year-old Andy McGough, from De Queen, Arkansas. McGough later admitted to having more than marijuana and told officers he wanted “to be honest with them” because he had a ball of meth under the passenger seat of the vehicle.

    Officers located a plastic bag under the seat with a ball of suspected methamphetamine inside the bag. The ball weighed 57.2 grams. McGough was arrested for possession of controlled substance-methamphetamine and transported to the Miller County Jail awaiting bail hearing. The driver was released with no charges.
