St. Louis Police said the caught Moorehead while he was running away. The delivery driver identified Moorehead as the man who robbed him.

Moorehead was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison.
The Assistant Circuit Attorney asked the court for a 20 year sentence because documents showed Moorehead had been previously guilty of second-degree burglary, felony stealing and misdemeanor stealing in 2004. Moorehead was initially put on probation, but that was revoked and he was sentenced to two years in prison.
