A media release from TAPD said the Bi-State Narcotics Task Force conducted a warranted search at the Texarkana home of Anthony Moore.
During the search, investigators said they found approximately 1.2 pounds of methamphetamine and other paraphernalia used to weigh and sort illegal drugs.
Police arrested Moore for trafficking methamphetamine and three deliveries of a controlled substance.
According to police, a traffic stop was made related to the task force investigation. When they stopped the car, the passenger admitted to the police that he was carrying a small amount of marijuana.
