Cops Collar Dangerous Teen Twice

By Brian Magoolaghan

A gun-toting teenager, who police said prowled around a local high school looking for trouble and was recently indicted in Brooklyn on a long list of charges, is off Rockaway streets thanks to officers in the 100 Precinct.

Wayne Moore, an 18-year-old alleged enforcer for a Brooklyn drug gang, was first arrested on April 15 after 100 Precinct School Sergeant Michael O’Sullivan and Detective Raphael Ruiz observed him and two others acting suspiciously outside Beach Channel High School.

O’Sullivan and Ruiz knew Moore and his friends, who arrived on bicycle just before dismissal, were not students at the school. Moore attempted to flee when the officers approached him, and was concealing a loaded .380 handgun in the waistband of his pants, police said.

Moore was arrested and charged with criminal weapons possession. He posted $1,500 bail and was back on the street for less than three weeks before he was indicted in Brooklyn Criminal Court on charges of attempted murder, assault, conspiracy, weapons possession, possession of a controlled substance and sale of marijuana, according to a spokesperson at the Kings County DA’s office.

Police from the 100 Precinct Anti-Crime Unit, who were notified that Moore was back on the street and wanted in connection with the indictment, tracked Moore down and re-arrested him on Beach 69 Street last Friday.

He remains incarcerated and is due back in court on June 15.
