City worker stops car thief in East Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man was arrested after police say he stole a city vehicle over the weekend.
A city worker told police he was working at Walnut Grove and Goodlett during the early morning hours of Sunday, July 7, when a man jumped in his car.
Several minutes later a second city worker with knowledge of the incident observed the vehicle at a red light down the street and confronted the driver. He then called police and had Richard Moore arrested.
Moore was charged with a felony count of theft of property.
