Posted: Updated:

A man already wearing an electronic monitoring device after a drug-related arrest was arrested again Wednesday, according to deputies in Union County.

The arrest, officials said, was a culmination of a three-month long undercover investigation into the sale of crack cocaine from a home on Cedarwood Lane in Stallings.

Investigators arrested 28-year-old Patrick Tyron Moses, who they say was out of jail on a $50,000 bond and was wearing an electronic monitoring device due to previous charges which allege that he "sold and possessed cocaine within 300 feet of a school" in Mecklenburg County.

During the search of Moses' home, deputies said that eight grams of crack cocaine, valued at $800, around $4,600 in cash, digital scales, and other drug paraphernalia were seized.

Moses' wife and two young children were also in the home, and DSS was called to the scene to investigate their well being.

Moses was charged with five counts each of possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia, three counts of felony maintain a vehicle or dwelling to sell/store controlled substances, and possession of a schedule III controlled substance.

He was taken to the Union County Jail, placed under a $150,000 bond, and given a court date on March 28.
