Missing Dallas murder suspect captured after being released on $1K bond

Dallas police have located a capital murder suspect who cut off his ankle monitor just hours after he was released from jail.

James Moore was arrested in 2019 in connection to the murder of a restaurant owner in Downtown Dallas.

He's been in jail since then because his bond was initially set at $500,000.

But this past Monday, prosecutors told the judge in Dallas County's 194th District Court that they weren't ready for trial. On Friday, Judge Ernest White lowered Moore’s bond to just $1,000.

Judge White placed Moore on house arrest. The next day, county records show his GPS tracking device emitted a "tamper" alert.

It’s believed Moore removed the device.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson tweeted about the case saying that as he and Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia work to make the city safer, all parts of the criminal justice system must do their parts to make that happen.

Moore was caught on Thursday by U.S. Marshals near Walnut Street and Audelia Road.
