Shocking Sign Offering ‘Free Fentanyl’ Outside San Francisco School Leads to Arrest
The convicted pedophile had stationed signs outside the school that said ‘Free fentanyl 4 new users’ and ‘Meth for stolen items.’
Arrest for Probation Violation After Refusing to Comply with Order
On Friday, authorities arrested Moore for probation violation after he refused to comply with an order to move for creating a public nuisance.
Moore’s Disturbing Actions
Moore insisted that the sign was not a ruse – and he was actively handing out the killer drug. He told ABC7, ‘It’s not a joke’ and said he would pass on the drugs that other people gave him in exchange for supplies he provides.
According to California’s Megan’s Law website, Moore was convicted of lewd of lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14 in 1997 and released in 2002.
The San Francisco Standard reported that according to court documents, he has been arrested five times in the city since 2007 for allegedly failing to re-register his address as a sex offender every 30 days.
Alarming Past Incidents
According to a Santa Cruz Sentinel article from 1997, Moore was convicted of molesting a 12-year-old girl in Santa Clara County before being released from custody and then having sex with a 15-year-old in Santa Cruz. Moore also told ABC7: ‘
So they bring me trash that they’ve scavenged, things that they think are valuable, or they give me some of the drugs that they have, which I don’t do.’
Impact on Neighborhood
Moore is not considered a ‘high-risk’ offender, so he does not have to stay 2,000 feet away from a school. Neighbor Jon Chintanaroad expressed concerns about the safety of the neighborhood.
Arrest and Cleanup
On Friday afternoon, Moore was taken into custody after officers gave him an order to move. Officers with the San Francisco Police Department arrived at the site in the morning and told Moore to clear by 12:15 pm, which he failed to do.
Following his arrest, his belongings were bagged up and removed by workers. Peter Marlow, a spokesperson for the Archdiocese of San Francisco, commented on the situation and the safety of children in the neighborhood.
