Three charged with drug offenses in Beaufort County

WASHINGTON NC, (WITN) Three men are behind bars and facing drug charges after deputies say they were selling drugs out of a local car wash.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says that 54-year-old Giles Keyes of Washington, 36-year-old Michael Booth of Greenville, and 36-year-old Jermaine Moore of Washington are all charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana within 1,000 feet of John Cotton Tayloe Elementary School.

Booth and Moore were also given that same charge for dealing cocaine.

Deputies say investigators arrested Booth and Keyes on March 8th and Moore on the 14th.

Investigators say controlled purchases were made from the men at Booth's Car Wash and that a search of the business found more than four ounces of marijuana.
