Oriental police officer arrested
On Thursday, March 23, 2017, at approximately 11:50pm, Pamlico County Communications received a 911 call from a female requesting help and crying. No further details were given during the call and when telecommunicators attempted to gain more information the call was disconnected.
Through investigative means, telecommunicators were able to determine who the phone number was registered to and a search led Pamlico County deputies to 403 Freemason Street in Oriental, North Carolina, where the victims’ vehicle was located.
During the course of the investigation it was determined that a domestic assault occurred. The victim stated that she was assaulted and evidence at the scene and statements collected led to the arrest of Dwaine Moore of Oriental. Moore was charged with Assault on a Female and placed in the Pamlico County Jail on a no bond for 48 hours or until his court date. Moore’s first appearance was Friday and was released on a $5,000.00 unsecured bond by a District Court Judge.
