Lengthy Investigation Lands 2 Felony Criminals In Polk County Jail, LIVINGSTON, May 5, 2012 - Early Friday afternoon (May 4, 2012) Narcotics Detectives Christopher Lima and Vance Berry stopped a vehicle off US-59 North in the Goodrich area at a Valero gas station. The vehicle was being driven by Douglas Dewayne Moffett, 35, of Lufkin. Moffett has been under investigation for nearly a year for allegedly transporting and selling methamphetamine from as far north as Lufkin through Polk County and all the way down to Houston. Lima and Berry were acting on felony warrants that were out for Moffett's arrest.
