News release from the Pittsburg Police Department

On Friday, June 7, 2013 at approximately 2:00 a.m. an officer on routine patrol heard an audible alarm activate in the downtown area. The officer located the source of the alarm at Easy Money Pawn Shop, 818 N. Broadway and observed a male suspect on the roof of a neighboring building attempting to flee the area. Assistance was requested from the Pittsburg Fire Department to gain access to the roof of the building next door and officers were able to apprehend the suspect. 

Further investigation revealed the suspect gained access to the building from a second floor window and was in the process of removing several items of property from the business when the business alarm was activated. Officers recovered several hundred dollars worth of property belonging to the business, which was inventoried and returned. 

The suspect was identified as Victor C. Moore, 19, of Pittsburg. Moore was transported to the Crawford County Jail facing charges of Burglary, Felony Theft and Criminal Damage to Property. In addition to these charges, Moore was also found to have an active no-bond warrant issued out of Wilson County, Kansas.
