Deputies Respond to Jamestown for a Report of a Man Pointing a Gun at People

Jamestown, CA…On Friday November 18th, 2022, at about 7:00 pm deputies responded to the area of Main Street near Willow Street in Jamestown for a report of a man pointing a gun at several people. Deputies responded to the scene with lights and sirens. While deputies were en-route to the scene, the man, later identified as 29-year-old Roger Taylor Moore, left in a vehicle. CHP officers also responding to the scene located the vehicle and conducted a high-risk traffic stop. All persons inside the vehicle were safely ordered out of the vehicle where they were detained. Taylor Moore was searched and a loaded handgun and fixed blade knife were found concealed in his pockets.

Deputies began to investigate, speaking to witnesses and to the victim. The victim told deputies he heard a loud argument at a neighboring trailer within his trailer park so he went outside to see Taylor Moore and his neighbor in a heated argument. The victim told deputies he recognized Taylor Moore from minutes earlier when Taylor Moore trespassed through the trailer park and the victim had told him to leave. The victim explained he walked over to try and deescalate the argument and to again tell Taylor Moore to leave the property. The victim said Taylor Moore responded by pulling out a handgun and pointing it at the victim while threatening to kill him.

Deputies arrested Taylor Moore. As deputies completed a full search of Taylor Moore he tensed his body, attempting to turn around while arguing with deputies about being arrested. As deputies tried to place Taylor Moore into the back of a patrol vehicle he put his feet on the doorframe of the patrol vehicle and pushed against deputies, refusing orders to get into the vehicle. Eventually deputies were able to safely seat Taylor Moore in the patrol vehicle.

Taylor Moore was transported to the Dambacher Detention Center (DDC) where he was booked on charges of criminal threats, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, brandishing a firearm in public, carrying a concealed firearm, and obstructing or resisting a peace officer.
