One of Minnesota’s most wanted fugitives who taunted cops is captured in Michigan City


Information from Michigan City Police Department

Tiesha Monique Moore is in custody following a 5-month womanhunt that spanned three states, ending in Michigan City.

Moore was taken into custody Oct. 8, 2018, at about 5 p.m. by the Twin Cities (Minn.) Apprehension Team (TCAT), assisted by Michigan City Police and its K9 unit, in the Walmart parking lot in Michigan City.

Moore had a total of 16 outstanding warrants from Stearns and Benton counties in Minnesota. 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.

While on the lam, Moore had taunted police, commenting on Facebook that she would “never be caught.” TCAT followed up on dozens of anonymous tips from the public and searched homes and other locations in Minnesota, North Dakota and Indiana before ultimately finding Moore in Michigan City.

Moore was transported to the Indiana Department of Correction, awaiting extradition back to Minnesota.
