Inmate main suspect in Carlsbad abduction, robbery case

An inmate serving prison time for armed robbery was arrested last weekend on suspicion of abducting a man outside a North County shopping mall and robbing him almost two years ago, police reported Tuesday.

Curtis Lorenzo Moore, 35, will face charges of kidnapping, robbery, carjacking and other theft-related counts stemming from the crimes in Carlsbad two summers ago, Sgt. Mickey Williams said.

On July 25, 2008, Moore allegedly walked up to a man sitting in his vehicle in a parking lot in the 5600 block of Paseo del Norte, pulled a pistol on him and bound his hands and feet with zip ties.

Moore then drove around the city with the victim in the back seat for about an hour, using the victim’s debit card and PIN code to remove money from his bank account, Williams alleged.

The victim was eventually returned to the parking lot of Carlsbad Company Stores, where he was found, still tied up, by passers-by, who freed him and called police.

The case went unsolved until last October, when detectives identified Moore, by then in prison for another robbery, as the alleged perpetrator in the Carlsbad case.

Investigators forwarded their findings to the District Attorney’s Office, which had him re-arrested Sunday, the sergeant said.
