Champaign man charged in two burglaries

URBANA — A Champaign man linked through fingerprints to a residential burglary that happened last summer has also been charged with another that occurred a week ago.

David L. Moore, 21, who listed an address in the 1000 block of West Bradley Avenue, was arraigned Friday on two separate residential burglaries.

The first occurred Sept. 12 in the 500 block of East Eureka Street in Champaign.

Champaign police reports said the victims reported that someone broke in and stole several items, including a laptop computer, two iPads, jewelry and cash. A television was removed from the wall but not stolen.

Police recovered multiple fingerprints from the TV that matched Moore's.

When he was arrested Thursday on a warrant that had been issued Wednesday, police also questioned Moore and later arrested him for a break-in that occurred near his home in the 1000 block of Northwood Drive on Jan. 18.

The victim of that burglary reported two flat-screen TVs, two laptop computers, a Nintendo Wii, an Xbox, tablet computer and an MP3 player among the items stolen.

Some of that stolen property was recovered from Moore's home on Bradley Avenue on Jan. 19. Police were at his home investigating after a neighbor reported seeing two men carrying flat-screen televisions in that area.

Another person who was found at that address, Alonzo Moore, 19, who listed an address on East Florida Avenue in Urbana, was charged with misdemeanor theft in connection with the Northwood Drive break-in. He was released on his own recognizance.

David Moore is due back in court with his own attorney on Feb. 8. His bond was set at $75,000 on each of the two cases. If convicted of the residential burglaries, he would have to serve mandatory prison sentences of between four and 15 years, one after the other.

Is this the same David L. Moore who was arrested/wanted in connection to a murder back in 2011?
