Recordings Link Pacman To Drug Dealer

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- In April, Metro police seized nearly 2,000 pounds of marijuana and cocaine, busting one of the largest local drug rings in recent history.

Although investigative reports showed Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was a suspect, he remains untouched by the law. 

Documents and wiretapped phone conversations show he may have been very close to the investigation.

The conversations are between Jones and Darryl Moore, who was the target of the investigation. Police said that Moore was a convicted felon and an alleged major drug kingpin. 

The phone calls revealed the friends partied together several nights. Moore slept at Jones' home and evidence showed he may have made drug deals from there. 

In one conversation, Moore talked about a "cutie pie", which is slang for 9 ounces of cocaine.

Moore: "I'm at Pacman's house. I'm just laying around..."
Caller: "I'm just wondering if I could get a cutie pie from you"
Moore: "Yeah I got it yeah I can do that...give me about an hour"

The conversations revealed Moore's concern that Jones' smoking pot too much and put his career in jeopardy. They also raised questions if Moore may have even been a dealer for Jones.

In another call, "dro" is mentioned. "Dro" is slang for marijuana.

Pacman: "Bring that dro over here when you come too buddy."
Moore: "Do what?"
Pacman: "Bring some of that Dro when you come over here."
Moore: "I ain't got none."

The investigative report showed on April 1, officers were focusing on Darryl Moore, looking for a "shipment of cocaine" that was "ready to be delivered." 

An officer was assigned to wait outside the home of "Titans player Pacman Jones."

The investigation unfolded after that:

9:06 -- Police reports showed officers discovered Moore's car at Jones' house.
9:46 -- Moore exits the house with a briefcase. Minutes later, Moore and Jones were in the garage talking to each other. 
9:52 -- Moore left Jones' home with a bag and then about an hour and a half later, officers began the takedown, arrested Moore and seized thousands of pounds of marijuana. 

An hour later, Jones kept trying to reach his friend unaware of what happened. A listener might wonder why Jones wasn't charged. An attorney at the district attorney's office said they could never prove Jones was a distributor, although the conversations showed he was likely a user and a customer.

However, they said the close connections were still not enough to get a search warrant on Jones' home or an arrest warrant, so Jones faced no charges.
