Walnut Hill Man Found With Over $7,400 Inside Sneakers Charged With Buying, Carrying Stolen Weapon

August 2, 2020

A Walnut Hill man found with over $7,400 in a pair of shoes has been charged with buying and carrying a stolen gun.

Nickolas Derrell Moorer, 28, was booked into the Escambia County Jail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and dealing in stolen property.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office stopped Moorer for running a stop sign in the area of St. Regis Drive and Ballard Street. During the traffic stop, the deputy smelledĀ  the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, the deputy located a stolen .40 caliber Glock 27 under the front passenger seat of the vehicle. Moorer told deputies he purchased the gun from a website about a week prior, but was unable to provide a seller’s name or a bill of sale, according to an arrest report.

Also in the vehicle, deputies reported finding a lunchbox containing marijuana and $8,857 in cash — $1,446 in Moorer’s wallet and $7,441 between the insoles of a pair of sneakers.

Moorer was released from jail on a $20,000 bond.

    They better give that man his money back. No matter how long his rap sheet is, people have a right to their own property.

    Two things here. One, had he stopped at the sign he would not have been pulled over. Two had he not smoked weed in the car he would not have been searched, and most likely gotten off with a traffic citation. We will see him again.

    “Relased him? what do you have to do to be locked up?”

    Plead or found guilty in a court of law.
