PANAMA CITY BEACH — The man wanted by four law enforcement agencies in Northwest Florida is behind bars after he complimented an off-duty Walton County sheriff’s investigator.

Deputies worked several vehicle burglaries at Grand Boulevard on Monday. Surveillance video captured the man unloading items out of a stolen vehicle into a black Honda Accord, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office.

The Accord was discovered the following day parked at Silver Sands Premium Outlets in Miramar Beach. It had been stolen from Bay County.

An off-duty sheriff’s investigator stopped at the CVS store at the intersection of Panama City Beach Parkway and Thomas Drive on Thursday afternoon. On his way out he heard a voice call out, “Hey dude, nice car.”

The investigator, who is the lead investigator in the Grand Boulevard burglaries, immediately recognized the man fitting the description of the burglary suspect, the release said.

The man was using a skateboard as transportation and went into the CVS. The investigator immediately called the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies arrived and quickly identified the man as Jerald Ivan Moore, 37.

Moore was arrested on warrants from the Panama City Police Department for failure to appear in court. He had been arrested Aug. 24 for loitering and prowling but did not show up for his arraignment.

Shortly after Moore was taken into custody, Walton County investigators traveled to Bay County and interviewed Moore, who admitted to driving the stolen black Honda Accord seen in surveillance video from Grand Boulevard.

Moore is suspected in multiple vehicle and residential burglaries in Walton County as well as multiple crimes in Okaloosa County, including vehicle thefts in Destin and a burglary at Alvin’s Island in Destin.

Additional charges are pending, according to the release.
