Moody, 27, of Main Street, Bristol, at a home on Rose Circle. Police say residents had complained of drug activity and surveillance revealed him trafficking in crack cocaine and other narcotics. When police raided the apartment they found a man and woman inside sleeping, then found Moody with a cell phone and multiple texts from people looking for cocaine, then two partially burnt marijuana blunts, a digital scale with soap-like residue, $25 in cash and marijuana in a baggie weighing 3.2 grams. In the woman's bedroom, police say, $560 was found in cash.

Wiafe, police say, kept saying he was tired and wanted to go home and offered a wallet without a license. The report says his eyes were bloodshot and glossy and he smelled heavily of alcohol. He could barely stand unsupported, the report says, and failed sobriety tests. After being cuffed, the report says, Wiafe said, "I am African, I am not a criminal, why are you treating me like this?" and refused to sit in the cruiser.
