Members of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department Community Nuisance Enforcement Team (CNET), armed with a warrant for a man wanted for failing to appear in court, found more than they were looking for and now the suspect faces new drug charges.
Cameron Christopher Moffett, 23, 71 Campbell St., was served with an attachment for failure to appear on possession of a schedule VI drug and possession of drug paraphernalia charges.
He now faces new charges of manufacture, delivery or sale of methamphetamine and criminal impersonation. He was taken into custody at 131 Netherton Lane, according to Sgt. Jason Elmore's report.
The incident happened June 20 around 2:45 p.m. when members of CNET went to the address in search of Moffett. Upon arrival, the officers found three men in the driveway. None of the three men said they had identification.
When one of the men tossed a black zippered case onto a car seat in the driveway, he was taken into custody and questioned. The man — later identified as Moffett — gave officers a false name.
Deputies found in the bag a set of digital scales, seven small plastic bags, two of which contained a clear crystal substance that Elmore wrote in his report tested positive for meth. They recovered $134 in cash from the suspect.
Moffett was jailed without bond on the attachment, and was placed under $11,000 bond on the new charges. He is scheduled to appear in Cumberland County General Sessions Court on July 7.
