On Friday, May 16, a second juvenile appeared in the Moore County Courthouse in connection with the May 8 burglary at Woodard’s Market and Deli.

The juvenile was appointed an attorney and was put on house arrest while wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet. He is scheduled to be back in court on Tuesday, June 10.

According to Moore County Sheriff’s Investigator Mike Rainey, the juvenile was arrested on May 14 and placed in juvenile detention in Rutherford County pending the May 16 court date in Moore County Juvenile Court.

One juvenile was taken into custody earlier this month following an investigation by Moore County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Shane Taylor.

According to police reports, on Thursday, May 8, Taylor was sent to answer a call regarding a burglary at Woodard’s Market on Fayetteville Highway.

After speaking with the owners of the store, gathering evidence from the scene and gathering video from the store video system, Taylor learned that someone had taken $3,800 in cash and rolled coins from the store.

After gathering evidence through interviews, $1,050 in cash and rolled coins was located in a locked safe in one of the juvenile’s bedrooms. The money was seized, along with marijuana that was also found in the safe.

At that time, warrants were signed on both juveniles by the Judicial Commissioner. Taylor arrested one of the juveniles at that time.

While in Juvenile Court on Tuesday, May 13, the first juvenile taken into custody was placed on house arrest with an ankle bracelet and given a new court date of Tuesday, July 1, 2014.
