Trailer theft suspect arrested

A Cameron man has been arrested by Moore County Sheriff’s Department for trailer and equipment larcenies across the county, said Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields.

William Moore, 31, is facing several charges after an extensive investigation. He was placed at the Moore County Detention Center under a $277,500 secured bond.

“Between August and October of this year, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office received multiple reports of trailer and equipment larcenies throughout the Southern Pines, Carthage, and Robbins areas of the county,” said Fields.

Moore was charged with seven counts of felony larceny, four counts of larceny of a motor vehicle, one count of possession of methamphetamine, one count of possessing a controlled substance in a jail, one count of possession of stolen property, one count of breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle, and one count of larceny after breaking into a motor vehicle. In addition, he was charged with felony probation violation.

“Investigators recovered multiple trailers and several pieces of property stolen from Moore, Harnett, Montgomery, and Lee Counties, valued at over $55,000.00,” said Fields. “The property has been returned to the rightful owners.”

The suspect has a Nov. 15 court date and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
