Texas Man Leads New York State Troopers on 100 Mile Chase

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

New York State Police say a Texas man led them on an almost 100 mile chase from Cortland County to Jefferson County.

Christopher Moore of Dallas reportedly was clocked doing 83 mph in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 81 northbound in Cortlandville shortly before 9 p.m. July 9th when troopers activated their emergency lights in an effort to pull Moore over.  The 2008 Nissan Tundra failed to stop and police pursued.

The State Police were able to end the chase when stop strips were deployed in Adams Center, south of Sackets Harbor and the front tires were deflated.

Moore was taken into custody without further incident.

Investigators say they found the Tundra was reported stolen in the Kilgore, Texas area on May 31.  Authorities say it was also determined Moore was driving with an expired Texas drivers license and was in possession of two glass pipes containing marijuana residue.

Moore is charged with felony criminal possession of stolen property, fleeing a police officer and possession of marijuana and was given several tickets for traffic and vehicle violations.

Moore apparently had no ties to Central or Northern New York.

Moore is being held without bail in the Jefferson County Jail
