The Phil­adelphia Po­lice De­part­ment’s North­east De­tect­ives Di­vi­sion is seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in loc­at­ing the fol­low­ing most-wanted sus­pects in con­nec­tion with crimes in the North­east:

On Nov. 23, Hal­lums al­legedly broke in­to a second-floor apart­ment on the 6500 block of Tor­res­dale Ave. and stole $1,600 worth of prop­erty, in­clud­ing a Smith & Wesson 9 mm pis­tol, a 32-inch flat screen TV and as­sor­ted elec­tron­ics. A neigh­bor re­por­ted the crime in pro­gress to po­lice. Al­though the burg­lar fled, de­tect­ives linked Hal­lums to the crime through fin­ger­print evid­ence.

On March 29, a man re­por­ted to po­lice that his ATM card had been stolen and that sev­er­al deb­its total­ing $2,000 had been charged to the ac­count without his per­mis­sion. De­tect­ives ob­tained sur­veil­lance video from a store where the trans­ac­tions had oc­curred and iden­ti­fied Moore as the sus­pect based on the video evid­ence.

Moore is white, 6 feet 3 inches tall and 185 pounds. He has brown hair and gray eyes.

The broken win­dow cost the busi­ness own­er an­oth­er $850. De­tect­ives re­trieved sur­veil­lance video from the store and named Severs as the sus­pect based on the video evid­ence.
