A Campbellsville man has been arrested and charged with selling marijuana.

Christopher A. Moland, 26, of 111 W. Hord St., was arrested Wednesday, June 19, at 6:23 p.m.

According to his arrest citation, Campbellsville Police Officer Daniel Forbis and other officers were at his home searching for someone who had an active arrest warrant.

While at the home, Forbis wrote in court records, Moland gave officers permission to search his home in an attempt to find the person.

When opening a closet, according to court records, Forbis found a digital scale, a clear plastic bag containing suspected marijuana and a prescription pill bottle containing suboxone.

While at the home, records state, Moland removed $4,668 in cash from a safe.

Moland was charged with selling less than 8 ounces of marijuana, second-degree selling a controlled substance, having a prescription controlled substance not in its original container and buy/possession of drug supplies.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges in Taylor District Court on Friday, June 21. Bond was set at $10,000 and he was appointed a public defender. He was ordered to not consume any drugs or alcohol.

Last Wednesday, Moland's bond was lowered to 10 percent of $5,000 and the charges against him were waived to a grand jury for possible indictment.
