What started out as a case of malicious destruction of property turned into the recovery of a stolen vehicle and arrest of a suspect earlier this week.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, they were called to the Lake Side Campground about 2:40 p.m., Tuesday, August 9. The caller said that a gray Jeep was speeding through the campground and drove through a gate when exiting the park.

The vehicle description and license plate number they gave matched a vehicle that had been reported stolen in Grand Rapids.

Deputies discovered the vehicle abandoned at a nearby business. Witnesses gave police a description of the driver, and it was broadcasted to other police units. The suspect was spotted a short time later walking on 17 Mile Rd near Cedar Springs. After additional investigation, he was arrested and lodged at the Kent County jail.

Keonte Jarrell Moore, 24, of Grand Rapids, was arraigned on Thursday, August 11, and charged with one count of receiving and concealing stolen property—motor vehicle; and one count of malicious destruction of property between $1,000-$2,000. Bond was set at $10,000.

Moore is also being held on a parole violation. He served two years in prison for a 2013 Kent County home invasion, and was paroled in December 2015.
