Man Faces Charges in Thefts of Semi-Truck Trailers
A Siler City man was arrested Friday in connection with the theft of two semi-truck trailers from the West End area of the county.
Andy Brian Moody, 32, of 200 Moody Loop Road, Siler City, faces numerous charges, including two counts of felony larceny, according to a press release.
The investigation that led to the arrest of Moody started when the Sheriff’s office received a report on Aug. 6 from a West End man that his semi-truck trailer had been removed from a tobacco field near his residence, according to the release. Another report was made Thursday that a semi-truck trailer had been stolen from C&M Carriers Inc. located on Doubs Chapel Road. It was also reported that during the larceny a fuel tank was struck, spilling approximately 550 gallons of diesel fuel.
Moody was arrested by Sheriff’s deputies after the two missing trailers were located at D.H. Griffin Wrecking Company in Biscoe. While arresting Moody, deputies discovered three grams of methamphetamine, 48 grams of marijuana, items of drug paraphernalia and $4,000.
Investigators learned of 12 semi-truck trailers taken to D.H. Griffin by Moody since July 19, including the two trailers which were reported stolen from Moore County, all having the vehicle identification number (VIN) removed from them. The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is assisting the Moore County Sheriff’s Office with determining the origin of the remaining trailers.
Moody was charged with two counts of felony larceny, two counts of felony possession of stolen property, one count of misdemeanor injury to property, felony possession with intent to sell and deliver schedule II controlled substance, felony possession of schedule II controlled substance, felony possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, felony maintaining a vehicle for controlled substance, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was jailed, with his bail set at $125,000.
