A man wanted for leaving a small child in a car as he fled from pursuing deputies turned himself in Monday.
38 year old Robb Moore was booked into jail on charges of fleeing and eluding police, driving with a suspended license and cruelty toward a child.
On March 9th, sheriff’s deputies were looking for Moore after his wife reported to Key West Police she was concerned because he’d picked their child up at daycare hours earlier and she’d not heard from him since. Deputies located him on Shrimp Road, but he fled in his truck. They chased him north on the highway. He turned off at NAS Boca Chica and drove to the bayside of the base, hear the firing range. He continued to the end of a dirt road and jumped from the vehicle, leaving the small child in the truck. The child was recovered safe and uninjured.
Deputies who searched the area failed to find Moore, but a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was booked at the jail Monday.
