A Proctorville man was arrested this morning following a three-month long investigation by multiple county law enforcement agencies.

Travis S. Moore, 31, of 98 Prichard St., Proctorville, was arrested at about 8:30 a.m. and charged with counts of third-degree trafficking in drugs.

The Lawrence County Drug and Major Crimes Task Force, Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office and Proctorville Police Department executed the search warrant following an investigation into the trafficking of oxycodone tablets.

According to a release by the sheriff’s office, oxycodone, Xanax, cash and a firearm were collected during the search.

Moore was taken to the Lawrence County Jail and is expected to be arraigned Friday in Lawrence County Municipal Court.
