BAY MINETTE, Alabama — A registered sex offender who left the state without notification was tracked to Tennessee before being arrested in Mississippi, according to a release issued Thursday by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office.
U.S. Marshals in Gulfport, Mississippi, tracked 58-year-old Gregory Moore to a hotel in the area where he was arrested and transported to the Harrison County Corrections Center. Moore will eventually be extradited back to Alabama to face charges.
Moore, a registered sex offender because of a 1990 conviction out of Oklahoma, was living in Baldwin County until July of this year.
According to the release, he notified the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office Offender Compliance Unit that he was moving to Pensacola, Florida. Moore never set up residency in Florida and absconded. Arrest warrants were issued for requirements upon entering state and employment restrictions.
It was believed that Moore was in the Nashville, Tennessee, area so the U.S. Marshals were asked to help locate Moore on his active warrants.
He was then tracked to Mississippi where he was arrested.
The U.S. Marshals, Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office and Harrison County (Mississippi) Sheriff’s Office all contributed to Moore’s arrest.
