Moore charged in Cocke County home invasion
A Sevier County woman has been charged in connection with an alleged home invasion incident in a Cocke County home Monday morning. Tanya Sue Moore, 33, Patterson Road, Sevierville was arrested Tuesday by Cocke County Detective Jason Oury on charges of Retaliation for Past Action (Intimidation of a Witness), aggravated robbery, burglary, aggravated assault and theft under $500. Her bond is set at $175,000. Mitzi Turner says she awoke in her Shale Road, Newport home at 9:35am, to find a subject leaning over her, wearing a Halloween mask and putting gray duct tape on her mouth. The victim told Cocke County Deputy Hollis Emmons that her attacker held a knife to her throat, beat her on the head and then choked her. After getting loose, Turner says she reached up and yanked the mask from her attacker and identified Moore who she described as a twenty year-long friend. The victim says she may have stabbed the attacker, who reportedly fled after grabbing the victim's purse containing Roxicodone, alprazalam, $100 in cash,a Dollywood pass, EBT card and unfilled prescriptions. The items reportedly have a total value of $348.00 Ms. Turner had blood on her clothes, as well as scratches and a contusion to her head, but declined medical treatment after being examined by personnel with First Call EMS. A rubber glove was recovered from the living room floor, along with a piece of duct tape, the Halloween mask, and a machete. The 33 year-old Turner said Moore yelled at her about filing a prior theft report naming her as a suspect. Detective Oury said a receipt with the defendant's date of birth was found by officers in the area where Moore's car was reportedly parked during the incident. The arrest was made after the detective had surveilled the Moore residence for 2.5 hours. He says the investigation is continuing into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident. Moore said she was cut during the incident and she required sutures however she did not contact authorities about being injured. Sevier County also has charged Moore with a theft, and she was wanted on a probation violation in Cocke County.
