Pair arrested for Christmas Day burglary

A pair of Florida residents were arrested for a Christmas Day burglary at a Jacksboro drilling facility.

Matthew Murphy, 44, and Misty Moorehead, 33, of Port Orange, Fla. were arrested last week after a two-week plus investigation. According to an investigation report, Jack County Sheriff’s Deputy Keaton Marlow was  dispatched to Erwin Water Well Drilling in the 6600 block of Farm-to-Market Road 4 on Dec. 25 about a possible burglary which had just occurred. 

The shop owner, Henry Erwin, said he followed the subject down FM 4 before heading east on FM 2210. One of the subjects threw what appeared to be checks out the window which Erwin confirmed belonged to him.

On Jan. 4, 2020, JCSO Investigator Jim Richardson gained positive ID on both suspects for which warrants were issued, according to a report. On Jan. 7, both suspects were arrested by Fort Worth Police on the Jack County warrants. JCSO Criminal Investigations Detective Lt.  Michael Francis brought the pair back to the county on Jan. 8.
