The U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Eastern District of Pennsylvania, announced that they have indicted 18-year old, Arnell Moore, and charged him with the armed carjacking of a food deliveryman back in March of this year. A report from KYW News Radio said, Moore and two unnamed others allegedly ordered food, and had it delivered to an abandoned house in Northeast Philadelphia.
The three reportedly carjacked the driver at gunpoint when they arrived at the abandoned house to deliver the food. Police recovered the stolen vehicle a few days later. Moore was arrested the same day at his home. Authorities reported finding the cell phone used to order the food and a loaded gun in Moore’s room.
It appears that the FEDS have stepped in to handle a portion of the armed carjacking cases in the city, and according to the U.S. Attorney, if you commit an armed carjacking in Philly “you can expect the FEDS to show up on your doorsteps”.
“As alleged, Moore and his accomplices set up an innocent delivery driver and stole his vehicle, which he relies on for his livelihood. Enough is enough – if you commit a serious violent crime like an armed carjacking in our city, you can expect the FEDS to show up on your doorstep,” said U.S. Attorney, Jeninifer Arbittier Williams, in a statement.
Moore has been charged with carjacking and carrying a firearm. If convicted on all charges, Moore is facing a minimum 7-years in prison and a maximum life in prison sentence.
