    Victim:

    Meseadia Springer, 17
     

    Details:

    On Monday, detectives with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office were able to arrest a man linked to nearly 20 vehicle burglaries over the past several months. He was finally caught following a fight with his sister.

    Around 1:30 p.m., August 20, deputies were called to 6406 Sawyer Road in Tampa for a domestic violence incident involving a brother and a sister. The victim, Meseadia Springer, 17, said she got into a verbal argument with her brother, Seadrick Moore, 18, after their mother asked him to move out of the house. Springer said the argument turned violent, and Moore pushed her to the floor, despite knowing that Springer is pregnant. Moore was arrested for Aggravated Battery on a Pregnant Female and transported to Orient Road Jail.

    Upon booking, detectives were able to link Moore to a series of auto burglaries over the past several months. Due to Moore's unique hairstyle, witnesses positively identified him as the suspect seen burglarizing the vehicles on surveillance footage.

    On Friday, August 17, at 2 a.m., Moore and an unknown accomplice burglarized 10 vehicles in the Town N Country area. Moore stole one of the vehicles, a 2018 Honda, after finding a spare key inside the owner's other vehicle he burglarized. Moore was seen on multiple video surveillance cameras entering vehicles at the following locations:
    • 7112 Seabury Ct, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 7114 Seabury Ct, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 6814 Wayside Ct, Tampa, FL 33634
    • 8339 Fountain Ave, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 4713 Lodestone Dr, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 4715 Lodestone Dr, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 8333 Pocahontas Ave, Tampa, FL 33615
    • 1401 Debeers Dr #9, Tampa, FL 33612

    Moore also removed a Smith & Wesson 9mm gun from inside a 2011 Toyota during his auto burglary spree. Around 4 a.m. on August 6, Moore was seen on surveillance video entering two vehicles parked in the driveway of 4910 Murray Hill Drive in Tampa. He removed property valued at a total of $550 and fled the scene.

    Around 4 a.m. on June 24, Moore was seen on surveillance video burglarizing a Ford F-150 and a Volkswagen Passat located at 6602 Seafairer Drive in Tampa. Once inside the Ford pickup, Moore stole two credit cards, the victim's driver's license and $75. Moore went on to enter four more vehicles parked at homes in the same area, stealing approximately $4,049 worth of electronics.

    Moore has been on probation since February 28, 2017 for Arson of an Occupied Dwelling. His arrest was a violation of his probation.

    Moore is now facing the following charges:
    • Aggravated Battery on a Pregnant Female - 1 count

    • Burglary of an Unoccupied Conveyance - 15 counts
