Pleasant Hill Police have arrested the man they say is responsible for the armed robbery at the Parrot Wireless on Contra Costa Blvd. on Tuesday night.
The suspect, identified as 38-year-old Antioch resident Tremaine Legrande Moore, was arrested on Wednesday.
The following information is from the Pleasant Hill Police Dept.:
On Tuesday, 4-15-2014, at 6:44 p.m. Pleasant Hill Police Officers responded to a reported armed robbery at Parrot Cellular, 1300 Contra Costa Blvd. The suspect had already fled the scene and was described as an African American Male, in his late 20’s, 5’11’ to 6’ tall, with a stocky build. A clothing description was also provided.
A patrol officer responding to the scene observed a subject matching the description driving a white SUV. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle a pursuit ensued. The suspect eventually entered the freeway at Clayton Rd and Hwy 242. The suspect was driving erratically and at a high rate of speed. The pursuit was terminated when the suspect appeared to deliberately collide with another vehicle in an attempt to elude police.
Officers and Investigators developed information identifying Tremaine Moore as the suspect in this case. On Wednesday, 4-16-2014, Moore was seen by a Pleasant Hill PD Investigator leaving a residence in Antioch. The investigator followed Moore as he left the area riding a motorcycle. When Antioch Police Officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Moore he fled. A short pursued resulted in Moore losing control of his motorcycle, colliding with a curb, and being ejected from the motorcycle.
Moore was taken into custody without further incident. Moore was transported to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek where he was treated and released.
Investigators are in the process of developing additional information in this case. A Search Warrant was served at Moore’s residence in Antioch. Moore was eventually booked into County Jail for robbery, False Imprisonment, Kidnapping During the Commission of a Robbery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Evading Police, Burglary, a probation violation, and an outstanding felony warrant.
Moore is currently being held without bail.
Investigators are also examining Moore’s possible involvement with other robberies involving cell phone outlets in Pleasant Hill.
