Manager at mall arcade accused of selling drugs
A 25-year-old manager at the Tilt 90 video arcade at West Park Mall is accused of selling cocaine and marijuana at the arcade.
Police arrested James E. Walker, of 1710 N. Sprigg St., at about 7 p.m. Wednesday at Tilt 90. He was in custody Thursday at the city jail on a $30,000 bond.
He is charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. If convicted of the charges, he faces a maximum prison sentence of 30 years.
Cape Girardeau police and Southeast Missouri Drug Task Force agents arrested Walker after receiving information he had been selling the drugs at the arcade, said Cape Girardeau police Sgt. Barry Hovis.
According to the probable-cause statement, Walker took police to a back office where he showed them a nylon bag containing bags with about 83 grams of marijuana and 4 grams of powder cocaine. A digital scale and $223 cash were also in the bag, the report said.
Tilt 90 is owned by Nickels and Dimes Inc., based in Texas. Kevin Jordan, vice president of operations, could not be reached for comment Thursday.
A West Park Mall management representative did not return phone calls Thursday.
