Tiesha Monique Moore is in custody following a 5-month manhunt that spanned throughout three
states. Moore was located, and taken into custody by TCAT (Twin Cities Apprehension Team) on Monday afternoon, in Michigan City in the Walmart parking lot. TCAT was assisted by the Michigan City Police Department K9 Unit, Officer Mike Oberle and second shift Officers Brinkman and Charo. Moore had a total of 16 outstanding warrants at the time of her apprehension from both Stearns and Benton Counties. She was wanted for Felony 1st degree criminal damage to property, felony domestic assault, felony theft, felony aiding and abetting financial transaction card fraud, felony wrongfully obtaining assistance by false statement, impersonation or concealment, felony DWI, and several gross misdemeanor criminal charges. TCAT followed up on dozens of anonymous tips provided to their agency’s tip line after soliciting the help of the public in locating the most wanted fugitive, who had presumably left the state of Minnesota. Throughout the investigation, Moore taunted investigators with TCAT on social media by commenting on Facebook about how she would “never be caught”. Investigative efforts included the search of multiple residences in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Indiana before investigators ultimately ended Moore’s run from law enforcement in Michigan City. Moore was transported to the Indiana Department of Corrections awaiting extradition back to the State of Minnesota.
