Forest City Police Corporal Brad Moore was recognized by the Region C Law Enforcement Advisory Committee on Tuesday during the committee's meeting held at Larkin's On The Lake in Lake Lure.

Moore was recommended for the honor by Forest City Police Lieutenant Jamie Hoppes for his actions taken on Oct. 10, 2013.

On that date, Moore was on patrol when he located a vehicle fitting the description of a suspected vehicle used in an earlier larceny.

Moore stopped the vehicle and as a result of his investigation, three suspects were taken into custody and various drugs were seized including 11.8 grams of methamphetamine, 17 dosage units of Diazepam, one dosage unit of Clonazepam, five dosage units of Alprazolam and one dosage unit of Hydrocodone.

Additional items discovered were a metal spoon, a set of digital scales, plastic baggies and a glass smoke pipe.

"Due to the vigilant eye of Corporal Brad Moore and his dedication to his citizens and business owners, the original larceny was closed with an arrest and multiple narcotics were taken off the streets," Hoppes said. "I wish to thank Corporal Brad Moore for his observations that led to this stop and for his dedication and professionalism."

Forest City Police Chief Jay Jackson presented the commendation to Moore and thanked the Region C Law Enforcement Advisory Committee for recognizing the corporal.

"I would like to commend Corporal Moore on a job well done," Jackson said. "Corporal Moore's actions reflect the high standards we expect of our staff."
