Two arrested for drugs following vehicle chase

On March 3, investigators with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office drug unit arrested Bobby Moore, 41, of 21093 Hwy. 33 in Aurora and Jennifer Willis, 39, of 255 Warren Street in Edward. Moore was charged with trafficking in heroin, possession with intent to sell and deliver heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia. Willis was charged with fleeing to elude arrest and conspiracy to traffic heroin with Moore. 

Their arrest stemmed from investigators making purchases of heroin from Moore.  Investigators attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle that Willis was driving with Moore as a passenger. Willis refused to stop and led Investigators on a short vehicle chase before being apprehended.  Moore threw heroin out the window during the chase. Investigators collected more than four grams of heroin and plastic baggies containing heroin from the vehicle and roadside. 

Moore was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $75,000 bond. Willis was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond.
