During the break-in, the thief stole a Chromebook laptop and a television, court records show.

On May 9, deputies spotted Moore, who was wearing “the same black sweatshirt,” walking into the Cashland.

“Moore was carrying an HP Chromebook that he was attempting to sell when deputies made contact with him inside the business,” court records show.

While detained, additional information led investigators to Moore’s apartment in the 8300 block of Washington Village Drive, where stolen and suspected stolen items were found.
