Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Tuesday, October 20, 2020 shortly after 5:00 pm a 911 call was received by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office reporting a home invasion had just occurred at a residence on Fern Hill Road, south of Troutman. The female victim stated there were two victims still inside the residence who were tied up.
Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies, and detectives responded to the scene, while attempting to gather additional information from the caller about whether the suspect was still on scene.
When the deputies arrived, they located a victim in the front yard of the residence. She told them the suspect was a family member, and he had stolen her car and fled the scene. She also said the other victims were still in the residence, and she was unable to get in because the suspect had locked the door, and taken the keys when he drove away
Deputies were able to make entry into the residence. After going inside the home, they located another victim who was in the process of untying himself. The third victim, an elderly female, she was located, still tied up, and in need of medical assistance. Detectives were able to free her, and provided medical care for her until Iredell County EMS arrived on scene. This victim was quickly stabilized, and taken to a local hospital for emergency treatment.
Crime Scene Investigators began to process the scene for evidence while detectives interviewed witnesses, and neighbors.
The suspect was identified and confirmed by witnesses as, Chad Bradley Moore, a family member to all the victims.
The victims said Chad Moore had come into the residence demanding money, and when they refused to give him any money, he assaulted them, and tied all three of them up. He then took their credit cards. He then untied one of the victims, and was going to take her with him. She was able to escape from Moore. Moore then stole the victim’s vehicle. This victim was then able to run to another residence where she called 911.
Detectives were able to send out the suspect’s description, along with the vehicle description to other law enforcement agencies. The detectives then secured felony arrests for Chad Bradley Moore.
A short time later, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Detectives were notified, Chad Moore had attempted to use one of the stolen bank cards in Belmont.
