Lincoln man faces drug, weapon charges

HUBBLE - A convicted felon is back behind bars this week after state police allegedly found cocaine, marijuana and multiple weapons, including a stolen rifle, in his rented residence.

The shotgun had been reported stolen several years ago, said Bertram. After police were given verbal consent to search the residence, they also found two handguns, cocaine and several thousand dollars, reported Bertram.

Moser was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, receiving stolen property, first-degree trafficking marijuana, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.He was lodged in the Lincoln County Regional Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

Bertram was assisted in the recent arrest by state police Sgt. Mark Burden, Trooper Eric Taylor and K-9 officer Butch Canter and Lincoln County Deputy Sheriffs Toby Henderson and Ron Luster.
