Dallas County Man Sentenced to 57 Months for Possession of a Firearm After Conviction of a Felony

United States Attorney Richard W. Moore of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Jadarius Moore, a 25 year old resident of Selma, Alabama, was sentenced to 57 months of incarceration for possession of a .40 caliber Glock pistol.
 
On December 18, 2018, Moore entered a guilty plea pursuant to a plea agreement and admitted in open court that on January 19, 2018, a Selma, Alabama police officer saw Moore in the Vaughn Hospital parking lot driving a white Dodge truck.  The officer believed Moore had outstanding arrest warrants and attempted to stop him by activating the police vehicle’s emergency lights.  Moore sped away in his vehicle in an effort to flee the police.  As he fled, Moore threw a pistol and white substance out of the driver’s side window.  The officer then radioed that a gun and a white substance had been thrown out of Moore’s vehicle and the location of the items.  After speeding for a few blocks, Moore stopped the vehicle and fled on foot.  The Officer stopped and used a K-9 to track Moore.  After searching for approximately 100 yards, the K-9 located Moore under a vacant building.  Officers then called to Moore to come out and give himself up.  Moore did so and was arrested. The pistol was recovered but not the white substance as it was splattered in the wind.  The firearm was a .40 caliber Glock pistol.  Moore was previously convicted of Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st Degree, on September 29, 2014, in the Circuit Court of Dallas County, Alabama, case number CC-2014-000110.
        
Officers of the Selma, Alabama Police Department along with special agents of the ATF investigated the case and brought it to the U. S. Attorney=s Office for prosecution.  The prosecutor assigned to the case is Assistant United States Attorney Gina S. Vann.
