Temple man steals cell phone and cash from victim


An 18-year-old Temple man is accused of stealing a cell phone and money from someone he knows.

Rickey Lee Moore was arrested Tuesday and has been charged with two counts of robbery for an incident on July 13.

According to police, the victim was walking in the 900 block of W. Avenue M on July 13, when two men got out of a car and approached the victim. The victim knew one of the men and identified him as Moore.

Police say Moore hit the victim in the mouth and the other suspect yelled at Moore to take the victim's cell phone. Moore then hit the victim in the ribs before taking the victim's phone and some money that fell out of the victim's pocket.

Both suspects fled the scene before officers arrived.

The case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney's Office on August 7 and a warrant was issued for Moore. He was arrested in the 1800 block of E. Avenue K on August 13 without incident.
