ODESSA, TX (KWES) - An Odessa man is behind bars on several charges following an incident on Wednesday morning.

During a search of the apartment, officers found approximately 3.4 grams of methamphetamine.

Moore was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
