BOAZ, AL (WAFF) -

Boaz police say that after two weeks on the run, Hunter Moore was finally arrested. He is now facing more charges than they originally anticipated.

Albertville Police received a call from someone that spotted 19-year-old Moore at the Crossroads Mall on Wednesday. They found and arrested Moore.

He originally faced charges including burglary of an auto, theft of property and trespassing. But new charges have been added after Albertville Police made a discovery inside Moore's car.

“Inside the vehicle that he was in, they located several pieces of stolen property. Some of which, we've been able to get back to the rightful owner. They also located some methamphetamine, some marijuana, and drug paraphernalia inside the car, that he's also been charged with,” said Boaz Police Chief Josh Gaskin.

Gaskin said during their investigation into the burglaries and the stolen surveillance cameras. Moore made a number of confessions and now potentially faces several charges in multiple counties including Marshall, Blount and Etowah.

“A case that we tied him to through the interview in Albertville and Albertville investigators have been given what information we had. And they're going to work up that case up there. He also is facing charges in Oneonta for the theft of property, shoplifting

down there. He also told the investigators during the interview that he is on color code in Etowah County. And I'm not sure what that status is. So potentially three counties that he could be facing charges in, because of all this,” added Gaskin.

Moore will be transported to the Marshall County Jail.

He is currently charged with three counts of burglary of an auto, theft of property 1st, 3rd, and 4th, possession of burglary tools, meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The investigation is ongoing and more charges could be forthcoming.
