Vehicle Pursuit and Search of Area

Early on the morning of Decemebr 18, 2012, at approximately 3:00 a.m., Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 5500 block of Parkside Drive to investigate a report of a person with a weapon.  The suspect left the area in a white Acura prior to the deputy’s arrival.  A short while later a vehicle matching the suspect’s car description was traveling on Cahaba Valley Trace.  The vehicle refused to stop and attempted to elude deputies as they pursued it.  The suspect lost control of the vehicle at the intersection of Cahaba Valley Road and Eagle Crest Drive and crashed.  Two black males fled on foot from the scene.  Deputies discovered that the car was reported to be stolen from Pelham.

Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies, with the assistance of Hoover and Pelham police officers, established a perimeter around the area and began searching for the two suspects.  At 5:37 a.m. the Sheriff’s Office received a report of a stolen vehicle from a residence in the 1100 block of Eagle Park Road and deputies responded to the residence.  The vehicle that was stolen is a black 2009 Chevrolet 2500 Silverado truck with Alabama tag number 58X12038.  The truck reportedly had a hunting rifle in it, has a black bed cover and “Rest in Peace” sticker on the back window.  It is believed the suspects from the earlier pursuit stole this truck and left the area.  In addition to this stolen truck, numerous vehicles in the general area have been broken into.

After approximately three hours of searching without success, the area was reopened to the public.  The suspects remain at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Homicide Suspect Brown Dies
2012-12-08

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office previously reported the death of William David Moore, 52 years of age from Alabaster, on Thursday September 20, 2012.  An autopsy the following day confirmed that Mr. Moore’s death was not of natural causes and that he was the victim of a homicide.  The victim’s vehicle was located in Jackson, Mississippi, where local law enforcement officers took Lamario Brown, 30 years of age from Birmingham, Alabama, into custody.  He was charged with Receiving Stolen Property first degree by Jackson authorities and a Murder warrant was subsequently obtained by Shelby County Sheriff’s investigators charging him with Moore’s death. 

Brown remained in custody in Mississippi while the extradition process was underway that would have transferred him back to Alabama to face the Murder charge.  The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office was notified Wednesday December 5, 2012, that Brown died while in custody in Mississippi.  An autopsy revealed that Brown died from medical complications.

Sheriff Curry stated that, “although we will not see this case reach a conclusion through the Court, I am confident that no one else was involved in Mr. Moore’s death”.
