Dad Tells Son To Stop Selling Drugs At His House, Calls Police

(Memphis) Some tough love for a Memphis man who was arrested Thursday after his father called police and told them he was selling drugs out of his house.

Police said they found drugs, drug paraphernalia and weapons inside Anthony Moreno’s bedroom in the 4000 block of Violet in the Berclair area.

In all, officers confiscated more than 59 grams or 1.3 pounds of marijuana, hash, pills, a shotgun, assault rifle and more than eight thousand dollars in cash.

They said a portion of the marijuana was packaged up and ready to go.

“I‘ve been telling him for years, two or three, to quit selling,” said Moreno.

Tuesday, Carlos Moreno was still agonizing over his decision to call the police, but said he had no other choice.

“I was risking my house and I don’t want to lose my house over drugs,” said Moreno.

Anthony Moreno arrived at his home while police were searching it and was taken into custody.

He is charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, deliver or sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a deadly weapon.

Moreno is being held on $50,000 bond.
