According to court documents and statements made in court, on August 5, 2019, Moore committed an armed robbery of the Dunkin Donuts located on Lordship Boulevard in Stratford, taking approximately $400.  On August 12, 2019, he robbed the Santander Bank located on Grand Avenue in New Haven, taking approximately $2,000.

Moore was arrested on related state charges on August 14, 2019.  At the time of his arrest he possessed a loaded .38 caliber revolver and a .25 caliber semiautomatic handgun.

Moore’s criminal history includes convictions for criminal weapon possession and possession of narcotics.  It is a violation of federal law for a person previously convicted of a felony offense to possess a firearm or ammunition that has moved in interstate or foreign commerce.

Moore has been detained since his arrest.  On March 30, 2022, he pleaded guilty to one count of Hobbs Act robbery, one count of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a robbery, one count of bank robbery, and one count of count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Judge Chatigny ordered that the 118-month federal sentence is in addition to the approximately 43 months Moore has already served since his arrest.

State charges against Moore are pending.

This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Connecticut State Police and the Stratford, New Haven, and Bridgeport Police Departments.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher W. Schmeisser.
