Law Enforcement Report

By David Howell

    A fugitive wanted by federal authorities was nabbed last Thursday in Water Valley in a joint operation.

    Calvin Moore was wanted out of Davenport, Iowa, after he was indicted by a federal grand jury for sale of a controlled substance and conspiracy to sell a controlled substance, according to Yalobusha Sheriff, Lance Humphreys.

    “We got information that he was staying in Water Valley with a girl on Kimmons Street,” Humphreys reported.

    Officers with the Water Valley Police Department, the Yalobusha Sheriff’s Department, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the Federal Bureau of Investigation made the arrest without incident.

    “If you are indicted in the federal court system, typically you are involved in larger quantities of illegal narcotics than what we typically handle,” Humphreys added about the arrest.

    Moore had at least three addresses, one in Oakland, one in Marks and a third in Iowa, the sheriff added. Moore was transported to the federal prison in Oxford following his arrest.
