Wanted for robberies in two states, felon nabbed with gun & drugs during Anderson stop

ANDERSON, Calif. — Authorities say an overnight traffic stop led to the arrest of a man with active felony arrest warrants for robbery out of San Bernardino County, California and Washington County, Oregon early this morning, Saturday, July 10. A woman was also arrested and officers recovered an unregistered handgun, high capacity magazine, and narcotics during the enforcement stop, which occurred in the area of Riverside Avenue and Story Lane.

A City of Anderson police officer conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle shortly before 3 a.m., officials later reported. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Rachael Elaine Kindler, 37, of Springfield, Oregon. Her passenger, who initially provided a false name to officers, was eventually identified as Darius Ramon Moore, 29, of Pomona.

“Upon initial contact Moore provided false information to assume the identity of his cousin,” officials said. However, Moore’s cousin happened to be on active CDC parole and as a result of providing the false name, both Moore and Kindler were detained so officers could conduct a parole search of the pair and their vehicle.

Officers located an unregistered pink, .40 caliber Glock handgun, two loaded magazines, and an empty large capacity magazine, which is currently illegal to possess in California. Officers also discovered cocaine and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia.

Based on their investigation and findings, officers arrested the pair.

Later, while being booked at the Shasta County Jail in Redding, Moore decided to provide his true name; at which time a records check revealed he had two active felony arrest warrants for separate and unrelated robberies in California and Oregon.

Moore was booked under his real name on his warrants and on suspicion of unlawfully possessing narcotics while armed with a loaded operable firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of ammunition by a felon, possession of cocaine, and false impersonation.

Kindler was booked on suspicion of unlawfully possessing narcotics while armed with a loaded operable firearm, possession of a firearm by an addict, possession of ammunition by an addict, and possession of cocaine.

Online jail records indicate both Moore and Kindler remain in custody, with Moore being held without bail and Kindler being held in lieu of $25,000 bail or bond.
