A Hixson man was arrested on Thursday for a December vehicle theft that occurred in Signal Mountain.

According to police, Signal Mountain resident Hollie Helrigel called on Dec. 18 when she woke up and found that her 2006 Toyota Matrix was missing.

Ms. Helrigel told police she had let a friend, Bradley Scott Moore, sleep on her couch for the past few days. However, when she woke up that morning, Moore and her vehicle were both gone. She said she had left her keys on her kitchen table.

She said her husband, Flynn Helrigel, immediately went searching for the vehicle and the suspect. Mr. Helrigel told police he spotted the vehicle in the North Chattanooga area; Moore was driving.

Mr. Helrigel said he continued to follow the vehicle until they came upon a dead end road. He told police that here, Moore jumped out of the vehicle and ran into a wooded area. This was the point when Mr. Helrigel called the police.

Moore, 21, of Breeland Street in Red Bank, has been charged with theft over $1,000. Bail was set at $25,000.

The City I Used To Know

“They Dead”, the innocent young voice said as tears began streaming from my eyes.  Foolishness that didn’t involve him snatched away his childhood in the blink of an eye.  Why?  Why has my city become known more for gangs and violence than the River Front, Lookout Mountain, and a fun little theme park?  What happened to hot summers at Lake Winnie, ...
