Valdosta police make another drug seizure. But, not before being sent on a chase through an apartment complex.

A police officer noticed a black mustang on the side of road yesterday morning near the intersection of North Oak street and Bemiss road. When the officer approached the car, he found 24-year-old William Moore, Sr., sleeping.

"He smelled alcohol and the guy asked him if he could leave," says Commander Steven Heaton. "He then slammed the door and took off."

Moore then traveled about a mile to Three Oaks Apartments where he parked his car and tried to run. But, police were able to catch him before he left the parking lot.

He is being held in the Lowndes county jail charged with possession of cocaine, obstruction of an officer, wreckless driving, and driving under the influence.
