Details emerge in hair salon robbery

New details have emerged in the case of a Mill City woman who allegedly participated in an armed robbery in Salem as the defense attempts to suppress evidence.

On Oct. 26, the attorney for Sarah Martha Moore, 39, filed a motion in Marion County Circuit Court challenging a police search of her apartment.

Moore is charged with two counts of second-degree robbery and as of press time was held in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The motion revealed Moore is accused of stealing $635 in hair extensions at gunpoint from Salon Services Pro on March 18, 2022, with alleged accomplice Andre Dreams. 

Dreams, 42, has an extensive criminal history involving forgery, fraud, drug possession and sexual assault, and as of press time had not been arrested for the robbery.

The motion said police arrived at the suspects’ apartment on the 300 block of D Street NE and during a warrantless search found the hair extensions. The motion claimed this search was illegal because police received permission to enter the building from another tenant rather than the inhabitants or the property owner, and was conducted without a warrant.

A hearing to consider the motion is set for Nov. 15.
