Springhill PD arrests one for drugs, intoxication

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Springhill Police have arrested a local man for possession of drugs and public intoxication.

Demmitris Yamon Moore, 51, of the 300 block of Legion Dr., Springhill, is charged with possession of Gabapentin (Sch. V) with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, disturbing the peace by public intoxication and possession of a legend drug.

Police were reportedly dispatched to a S. Main grocery store when an employee reported an intoxicated male who was staggering and fell down in the store.

When police arrived, Moore was near a bridge on Legion Drive. Officers made contact and detained him in a police unit to prevent him from falling or stumbling into traffic.

A search of his person reportedly located a glass smoking device with suspected methamphetamine inside, a one-gallon plastic storage bag containing 11 different prescription pill types, five of which were allegedly visually identified as different milligram weights of Gabapentin.

Moore was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.
