Chief Deputy Ben Green applied for and was granted the search warrant. Trooper Eric West found a used syringe in the toilet and a burnt spoon with methamphetamine residue in the trash.

Moore, on probation after a 2023 conviction for possession of methamphetamine, is set for a probation review on July 18, 2024. He was court-ordered to complete 300 hours of community service, enroll in drug rehab classes, and submit to random drug screens, none of which he has completed. Moore was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine (second offense), possession of drug paraphernalia, and tampering with physical evidence. He is lodged at the Ballard County Jail.
