Former tenant accused of stealing gun

A former tenant is accused of stealing a gun from a home in Cameron. 

Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields made the announcement on Tuesday. 

“On Saturday, June 22, 2024, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a larceny of a firearm from a residence in Cameron, North Carolina,” said Fields in a statement issued to Sandhills Sentinel. “Sheriff’s investigators quickly located and recovered the firearm after tracking down a former tenant of the residence where the firearm was stolen.”

Investigators arrested the suspect the same day. Twenty-five-year-old Taylor Curtis, of Cameron, was arrested on charges of one count of larceny of a firearm and one count of possession of a stolen firearm.

Curtis was committed to the Moore County Detention Center without bond pending a first appearance in Moore County district court on July 3 and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
