MAN ARRESTED IN STAKEOUT

SAVANNAH, GA (May 26, 2015): A Savannah man faces charges here and in Arizona after undercover officers responding to burglaries in the Pinpoint/Whitfield Avenue area teamed up with aviation unit officers Friday afternoon.

Willie Arthur Moore, 35, of a Grant Street address was arrested about 6 p.m. after he fled from Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police in cars but could not elude officers in Metro helicopter Eagle One.

He has been charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), fleeing to elude police officers, unsafe turning, driving with no license, possession of a drug-related object for use and parole violation from Maricopa County, Arizona.

Officers from the Southside Precinct Crime Suppression Unit were working undercover in the neighborhood about 5:45 p.m. when Moore was seen walking out of a wooded area and driving away in a gold 1997 Cadillac Deville.

Undercover officers followed the car until a sergeant in a marked unit attempted a traffic stop, only to see the Cadillac speed away, its driver unaware of the police helicopter that had joined the pursuit. The sergeant discontinued his ground pursuit while other officers saturated the area where Moore and another male were seen walking away from the car.

Moore was arrested trying to hide a substance later identified as cocaine under a backyard shed. Arresting officers later discovered the warrant from Arizona. They also seized scales used to weigh drugs and two cell phones.

Southside Precinct detectives continue to search for the second occupant of the Cadillac.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

A Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124 and most area clergy have agreed to serve as liaisons for anyone who would like to share information with police anonymously.
