'America’s Most Wanted' fugitive captured by parish deputy
Man was wanted for brutal rape in ‘99 that took place in Maryland
St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Deputy Ronald Newman was responding to a burglary alarm at 7 p.m. when he observed a white male coming from the rear of the residence.
That man, Ronald Lee Moore, had entered the home and was beginning to rummage through drawers when the alarm went off and forced him to flee. The residents were not home, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Moore, who had unsuccessfully attempted to enter another home next door and was on a bicycle with a backpack, was quickly apprehended.
During the arrest, Moore gave a fictitious name, but when his fingerprints were taken at the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center, authorities figured out his true identity after matching them against a nationwide fingerprint identification system.
Deputies were then able to connect Moore with a warrant from the Anne Arundel County Police Department on charges of first and second-degree sex offense, unnatural or perverted practice, second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, reckless endangerment and possession of a deadly weapon.
According to “Amercia’s Most Wanted,” Moore had been mistakenly released from the Baltimore City Correctional Center in November because of a clerical error before making his way into the parish.
Police say Moore was serving time for assault and burglary, but a DNA hit in 2006 connected him to a brutal 1999 sexual assault where Moore allegedly broke into a woman's apartment, shocked his victim with a cattle prod and forced her to perform sexual acts on him.
After he served his time on the burglary and assault charges, correctional employees were supposed to detain him on the rape charges. That order was never carried out.
Moore is being held without bond at the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center, pending extradition to Maryland.
