Former U.S. Navy Sailor Sentenced for Transporting Stolen Vehicles

NORFOLK, Va. – Genesis Calvin Moore, 25, of Hampton, was sentenced today to 18 months in prison for charges related to theft of government property, interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles, and possession of stolen motor vehicles. Moore was also ordered to pay over $80,000 in restitution to the U.S. Navy.   

Moore pleaded guilty on July 15. According to court documents, on May 4, 2015, Moore stole a trailer full of fitness equipment from the U.S. Navy Morale, Welfare, and Recreation department on Naval Station Norfolk, and on or about June 7, 2015, Moore stole a freightliner truck that was assigned to the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. Moore used the stolen freightliner truck to transport two stolen Bobcat construction vehicles to Loganville, Georgia, where he attempted to sell them via Craigslist. He was apprehended by law enforcement in Loganville before he could complete the sale of the Bobcats. One of the Bobcats was returned to its owner, and a month later Moore stole the same Bobcat construction vehicle and attempted to sell it via Craigslist a second time.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Timothy Quick, Special Agent in Charge, NCIS Norfolk Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Rebecca Beach Smith.
