In September, police were called to Jackman Avenue to check on a report that a man on a bike was looking into car windows.
Officers found Moore riding a new Trek mountain bike, according to the report. He told police he purchased the bike from someone in Bridgeport for $100. He also had a white iPhone, with a cracked screen, police said.
Having no reason to detain Moore further, police let him go.
Later that day, a Norwood Road resident reported a new Trek bicycle had been stolen from an unlocked garage, and a warrant was issued for Moore's arrest.
The cracked iPhone was later traced to a woman on Brookridge Road, who reported Jan. 3 that her unlocked car had been entered and missing was a white iPhone with a cracked screen.
Six cars in the immediate area were reportedly entered that day.
Moore was charged with one count each of third-degree burglary, fifth-degree larceny and sixth-degree larceny. He was held on bonds totaling $2,000 and was arraigned that day.
