Police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood said detectives had recently initiated a child molestation investigation that centered on Moore, and they discovered he had engaged in multiple sexual acts with the victim over the course of five months. The victim is a Santa Barbara resident, Harwood said.

Moore’s work as a professional photographer work “may have facilitated contact with [other] youth,” Harwood said. Anyone with knowledge of other crimes perpetrated by Moore is asked to contact SBPD Detective Douglas Klug at (805) 897-2346 / dklug@sbpd.com.
