CAR BURGLARY CASES SOLVED
Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Unit has made an arrest in connection with recent car burglaries in Greenback which occurred on Jackson Bend Road in an area known locally as “The Bluffs”, announced Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider. The Bluffs area is a popular swimming area located approximately a half hour walk from the main road.
On May 28th a vehicle was burglarized in the Bluffs area and among the items stolen were credit cards. On June 13th another vehicle was burglarized and a wallet containing credit cards was stolen in that burglary. However, in the June burglary, the suspect was apparently cut by the glass and left blood on the window.
Working with WalMart security, the CID unit obtained a video of the suspect using a credit card from the May burglary. News stations aired the video of the suspect and the CID unit immediately began receiving tips to the suspect’s identity. In Monroe County, investigators located Timothy Lee Moore, 34, of 2094 Green Road, Madisonville. Moore’s mother’s vehicle was found with blood in it, and Moore told officers he had cut himself on the foot replacing a friend’s window. However, he later confessed to investigators that he was involved in the burglaries and thefts. CID also recovered a shirt that was the same shirt Moore was wearing during the transaction at WalMart. At this time Moore has been charged with burglary, with other charges are pending. The other suspect has been identified and warrants are currently being sought for his arrest, but the Sheriff declined to release the name of the suspect at this time.
Sheriff Guider would like to thank all the news channels that aired the video and assisted in getting these men identified, and noted the CID unit is still has an ongoing investigation into the burglaries. He also cautioned everyone to lock their belongings in their vehicle trunk, or better yet, leave valuables at home and just carry your driver’s license.
