NORFOLK, Va. – A former U.S. Navy Sailor was sentenced Friday for transporting stolen vehicles.

25-year-old Genesis Moore, of Hampton, was sentenced to 1.5 years in prison for charges related to theft of government property, interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles, and possession of stolen motor vehicles.

Moore was also ordered to pay over $80k in restitution to the U.S. Navy.

Court documents state that on May 4, 2015, Moore stole a trailer full of fitness equipment from the U.S. Navy Morale, Welfare, and Recreation department on Naval Station Norfolk.

On or around June 7 Moore also stole a freightliner truck that was assigned to the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier.

Moore used the vehicle to transport two stolen Bobcat construction vehicles to Loganville, Georgia, where he tried to sell them on Craigslist.

Law enforcement in Loganville apprehended Moore before he could sell the Bobcats.

One of the Bobcats was returned to its owner and Moore stole the same construction vehicle a month later and tried to sell it on Craigslist again.
