A foot chase from lawmen has landed a suspected cocaine trafficker in jail on a $800,000 bond.
Beaufort County deputies Wednesday charged Bobby Moore of Aurora with possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies say they went to the intersection of Highway 33 East, Old Sandhill Road and Bonnerton Road in Edward, which is known as Alcohol Junction, to arrest Moore. They say the 31-year-old man ran from them before being caught. Deputies found 25 grams of cocaine and two plastic bags of marijuana on him.
Moore remains in the Beaufort County jail.
