With the assistance of citizens across the Kenai Peninsula, investigators were able to locate the suspect and arrest him on Sunday. He was charged with Fail to Stop At Direction Of Peace Officer, Reckless Driving, and Improper Use of Evidence of Registration.Moran-Tacey was also found to have multiple warrants for failure to appear on cases of Theft IV x2, Vehicle Theft I, MICS IV x2, Misconduct Involving Weapons V, Criminal Trespass II, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest x2.

He was remanded to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility in Kenai with his bail set at $100,000, but was held without bail on the new felony charges.
