MOORESVILLE, NC: At 1:16 a.m., on Thursday, April 4, a suspicious person/vehicle call was reported in a subdivision off Waterlynn Road. Witnesses stated several suspects were attempting to gain entry in to numerous vehicles, then jumped into a vehicle and sped from the area. Officers responded and located a vehicle on Waterlynn Road matching the description given by witnesses. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the vehicle would not stop, and a pursuit was initiated.

The vehicle was pursued north to Troutman, then south to Davidson. Stop sticks were deployed and the driver crashed the vehicle. Four occupants in the vehicle jumped and ran on foot. NC State Highway Patrol, Davidson Police Department and Statesville Police Department assisted with the vehicle/foot pursuit. All four occupants were located and taken into custody soon after the crash. The suspect vehicle was recovered and reported stolen out of Cornelius.

Christopher James Marquis Moses, 18, of Gastonia was charged with Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle, and Resisting/Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer. He was transported to the Iredell County Detention Center and received a $10,000 secured bond. The three other individuals face similar charges, but their names will not be released because they are under 18 years of age.

This investigation is still active. Numerous reports of breaking & entering of vehicles were reported in this area during the early morning hours of April 4. Additional charges may be filed later on all suspects.
