The investigators and officers found several hundred dollars and small baggies of the drug inside Moore’s home.

“There’s a large cocaine problem in Bainbridge,” Jordan said. “We are trying to lessen it every way we can. Any help from anybody in the community is welcome.”

BPS is also executing a search warrant for Keith Gaines in relation to the arrest of Moore. Jordan asked anybody that has tips on his whereabouts to call (229) 248-2038 or submit an anonymous crime tip at bainbridgecity.com.

Any amount of cocaine possession is a felony, however, anything less than an ounce is a Possession of Cocaine charge. The larger Trafficking Cocaine charge is given when the perpetrator is carrying more than an ounce.
