Decatur Woman Known for Surviving Boat Accident Charged with Selling Marijuana
DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A young woman known for surviving a horrific boat accident and beating the odds time and time again has been arrested.
Police say Molly Moses sold quantities of marijuana on three separate occasions. They arrested her Wednesday, December 4.
The Decatur Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit conducted an undercover investigation during the month of October. Officers say they bought high-grade hydroponic marijuana from Moses each of those three times. Each time, they purchased hundreds of dollars worth of the drug.
Police say the street value of the hydroponic marijuana was approximately $3,000.00 to $3,500.00 per pound. During the operation, Moses offered to sell a pound of marijuana for that price.
Police obtained three felony warrants for Moses, charging her with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.
They arrested Moses on Wednesday, December 4 at an apartment complex on Cedar Lake Road. Police say they found marijuana and drug use paraphernalia in her residence.
Police charged Moses with distribution of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana 2nd degree and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Moses was taken to the Decatur City Jail. She will be transferred to the Morgan County Jail. Her bond is set at $16,000.
Moses is well-known for surviving a boat accident with her father. The two were night fishing and she was thrown out of the boat and got caught in the propeller. Moses was severely hurt but survived, and has been through dozens of surgeries in the past few years.
She has also been an advocate for raising awareness about the need for blood donations, encouraging people to give regularly. Moses required a number of units of blood to survive the accident.
