When Angelina County Sheriff deputies rolled up on a suspicious vehicle Sunday, no doubt they were unsure as to what they would find. They were told there was a suspicious vehicle in the area, but when you're deep in the heart of east Texas, ain't no tellin' what you're gonna find. Turns out it was Robert Delane Moore, 42, who was loading up a four wheeler he allegedly pilfered from nearby residents.
But that wasn't the cherry on these officers' sundae. Moore, who was loading the four wheeler into a trailer in what people up north call "redneck behavior" and we in the South call "Sunday afternoon," was apparently needed by the county on another charge: meth dealing.
Seems Moore sold meth to a confidential informant last year and was wanted on those charges as well. According to the report, Moore has a lengthy criminal record and is currently on parole.
No word on what led to the black eye in that photo, though it couldn't have been good.
