SoVaNow.com / May 16, 2013
Two local men have been arrested on felony drug charges by members of the Halifax-South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force.

On Monday, May 13, officers arrested Gregory Clayton Moore, 47, of Shepherd Street, South Boston after seizing what authorities described as a “large quantity” of crack cocaine. Moore was arrested during the course of a traffic stop by Task Force members. The cocaine was found on his person. Officers also confiscated the 1997 BMW that Moore was driving.

He has been charged with one count of distribution of cocaine and one count of conspiring to distribute cocaine. He is being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Halifax without bond and more charges are pending against him.

Also arrested on Monday by Sheriff’s Deputy V. B. Cross was Cordaro Rahmad Wilson, 24, of Joe Jackson Trail, Halifax, who was charged with five felony counts. Wilson faces three charges of distribution of marijuana, one count of conspiring to distribute marijuana, and one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

The task force is comprised of members from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, South Boston Police Department and Virginia State Police.
