Moore arraigned on federal charges
A Cocke County man who allegedly threatened former Cocke County Chief Deputy and Detective Robert Caldwell, on Friday had his initial appearance and was arraigned in US District Court in Greeneville. David Kite Moore, 59, Basinger Road, Newport faces federal charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He was arrested August 16 on state charges of Stalking and Possession Of A Weapon By A Convicted Felon, after allegedly threatening the retired Caldwell. The day before the arrest, retired Chief Detective Robert Caldwell reported that a man had approached him at a convenience store and made death threats to him. He allegedly threated the lawman and then laid a wreath of flowers and a threatening letter near the end of Caldwell's driveway in the Point Pleasant community. Investigators had placed cameras at the end of the Caldwell driveway, and while servicing the cameras the next morning, Moore drove by. During a subsequent search of the Moore auto, a .22 caliber handgun was recovered, fully loaded with six bullets. As a result he was arrested, and a federal detainer was placed on Moore. Caldwell had been involved in investigations which led to Moore being convicted of Second Degree murder about 25 years ago. US Magistrate Judge Clifton L. Corker on Friday, ordered Moore held without bond.
