NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WKRN) – A man is charged with aggravated theft after an incident at an Airbnb in East Nashville earlier this year.

Officers said Moore and the other suspects held the victim at gunpoint and told him not to move or he would be shot. Police said the suspects took more than $ 3,000 of personal belongings, including a gun, an iPhone and a laptop computer. The report says the victim called the police with another phone he had in his pocket and when Moore and other accomplices realized the police had been called, they left the room and the victim ran out. .
Moore was jailed in Metro jail on Tuesday for aggravated theft on bail set at $ 59,000.
