HAMLET — A man is facing charges in two cities for allegedly violating a protection order and stealing the victim’s vehicle.


The Hamlet Police Department responded to a call Thursday on Buttercup Drive regarding a woman saying she wanted 39-year-old William Curtis Moore, of Rockingham, removed from her home.

Investigators say Moore complained of being dizzy and was taken to a hospital.

During that time, they say they found out Moore was subject to a domestic violence protection order. When they went back to service him with a warrant, officers say he had left the hospital.

After leaving the hospital, Moore allegedly went to the victim’s place of employment in Rockingham, got the keys to her vehicle without her permission, and drove it back to Hamlet.

He was arrested and charged with two counts of violating a domestic violence protection order; and one count each of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.

Moore was booked into the Richmond County Jail where he remained Friday evening under a combined $105,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court July 8.

Online court records show a William Curtis Moore facing charges in Anson County, but the RO was unable to confirm if it is the same individual.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Moore’s parole ended in March after being released from prison in 2018 after serving nine months for breaking and entering and driving while impaired.

A month prior to beginning that sentence, he had been released served time for a three-month reimprison violation.

Moore was released from prison in May of 2017 after serving 19 months for a false bomb report at a public building in Richmond County.

Most of his previous convictions before that were in Forsyth County, dating back to 2003 when he was given probation for financial card fraud.

From 2006 to 2007, Moore was convicted on three counts of violating a domestic violence protection order; one misdemeanor count each of failing to return rented property, assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized use of motor conveyance, communicating threats and larceny; and a felony count of possession with intent to sell or deliver a counterfeit controlled substance.

Moore was initially given probation on all those charges, which was revoked in late 2007 when he was convicted of assault and battery in Guilford County, resulting in a two-month incarceration.

In 2009, he was convicted of larceny of a motor vehicle and spent nearly nine months behind bars.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
