Greenwich PD Nabs Burglary Suspect

Cops say suspect had crowbar, mask, gloves when caught across the street from burglary scene.


Greenwich Police officers responding to a burglar alarm at the Shell gas station in Old Greenwich didn't have to look far to catch a suspect.

According to a police report, the station's burglar alarm sounded about 12:30 a.m. Oct. 11 after someone broke a glass door. As police were investigating, they saw a car parked across the street in a lot that had a posted sign that overnight parking was prohibited.

Police said the suspect matched the individual wearing a mask and gloves seen in a surveillance video using a yellow crowbar to break the door. According to the report, the mask, gloves and yellow crowbar were found inside the car.

Joshua Bentley Moore, 33, of 29 8th St., Stamford, was charged with first-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, second-degree criminal mischief, interfering with an officer and two counts of third-degree criminal trespass. He was released after posting $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Oct. 18 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

"This was an awesome arrest," said Police Chief James Heavey. "The officers took in the totality of the circumstances and in checking the area, they found the suspect." Heavey said nothing was reported missing from the station's store.
