Edinburg woman arrested on fraud, assaulting an officer charges

WOODSTOCK — An Edinburg woman was arrested on Sunday on four separate charges including obtaining money under false pretenses and assaulting law enforcement.

Kimberly Carol Moore, 50, allegedly went to an Edinburg residence on Water Street on Sunday to, “retrieve some of her belongings due to not living at this address anymore,” the criminal complaint states. The complaint also alleges that Moore smelled like alcohol and admitted to having three or four beers two hours before arriving at the residence.

The two people living at the residence allegedly said that Moore claimed to be the residence’s property manager, and that they paid Moore $600 in rent and utilities. According to the complaint, Moore is not the property manager, and she damaged some property while trying to enter the home. Moore was charged with obtaining more than $200 under false pretenses, destruction of property and being drunk in public.

While in custody, Moore allegedly attempted to strangle herself with her clothing, and while an officer was stopping her, she allegedly kicked and kneed the officer multiple times, the criminal complaint states. She was then also charged with assaulting an officer.

According to the bond determination form, Moore has a record of petit larceny, forgery, DUI and assault and battery charges, as well as several marijuana possession charges. The form also states that she is claiming to suffer from colon cancer.

Moore is being held without bond at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail. Her next court date is set for July 28 in Shenandoah County General District Court.
