A Madison man was arrested twice Friday on drug-related charges within a 12-hour span.
Brent J. C. Moderau, 25, was wanted by the Madison Police Department on a charge of dealing a controlled substance, a Class B felony.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Moderau sold two Roxicodone pills - pain medication - to a police informant for $50 in April 2013. The investigation was led by Lt. Det. Tyson Eblen.
He was taken to the Jefferson County Jail on Friday morning, where he was held on a $1,500 cash bond. He was released a few hours later.
Later on Friday, sheriff's deputies arrested Moderau after finding him passed out in a vehicle at State Road 62 and New Bethel Road near Lexington. A passerby called 911 around 2 p.m.
Sheriff John Wallace said Moderau was found to be in possession of pills and marijuana. He was arrested by Deputy Yancy Denning on charges of possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony; possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
Moderau has a pending case alleging he possessed heroin with intent to deliver. Indiana State Police arrested Moderau in May 2012 after a traffic stop. Troopers smelled marijuana in the car and when Moderau tried to pull marijuana out of his pocket, five heroin capsules, a bag of marijuana and $1,800 cash fell out of his pockets, according to court records.
That case is still pending, though a plea and sentencing hearing had been scheduled for April.
