CHARLOTTE, NC (WCSC) - A Lowcountry pastor is now facing drug charges in North Carolina. 47-year-old Brian Moore was arrested for felony drug possession and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia near Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday.

Moore is a pastor at the Life Center Cathedral Church in North Charleston. He also works for several other churches in North and South Carolina.

Police in the Queen City say they followed Moore after he left a motel with a man who was banned from the property. Officers say they found drug paraphernalia in the car's console. After finding the Ecstasy, the pastor reportedly told officers he had some Marijuana in his motel room.  According to the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina Sheriff's Office web site Moore posted $3,250 in bond for three total charges.

Moore said his lawyer asked him not to talk about the charges, but he released a written statement. It said in part, "Although the wheels of justice often move slowly, I have full faith that this incident will ultimately be resolved favorably. Until such time, I will continue to serve as pastor of Live Ministries and will continue to be a good husband and father to my wife and children."

Moore also said he has fully cooperated with police.
