Mooreville man facing drug charges

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – A Mooreville man faces charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Bobby L. Keller, 28, of 763 County Road 1349, Mooreville, was arrested Nov. 21 after deputies with the Lee County Sheriff’s Department and North Mississippi Narcotics Unit conducted a search warrant at his residence.
Agents received information that Keller was receiving packages that contained illegal narcotics at his residence. Agents discovered about three and a half pounds of marijuana that had been shipped in a fish aquarium and packaged with items in an attempt to cover up the odor of marijuana.
It was a premium grade of marijuana, said Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson, so the street value is approximately $14,000.
Keller’s bond was set at $100,000 on Monday.
