PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A 30-year-old City of Pascagoula employee has been arrested for allegedly selling drugs at work.

Pascagoula Police tell WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/2k1YXhh ) that part-time employee Wesley Hall was taken into custody around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday after police say they caught him selling a form of methamphetamine in a city vehicle at work. It was unknown if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

An investigation was initially started after a concerned citizen contacted police after a city employee reportedly approached them about buying narcotics. Police formed a plan to capture Hall, who was assigned to the police department to do maintenance work, selling drugs on video.

The Pascagoula Police Department and the South Mississippi Metro Enforcement Team assisted in the investigation and the arrest of Hall.
