LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- A 22-year-old man accused of taking a credit card and gun from a Border Patrol agent is also facing several child sexual assault charges.
On Thursday, Jaime A. Moore was charged with five counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor, one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor, seven counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of criminal solicitation.
Police said the mother of three children made the assault allegations against Moore, who was living in her home. On several occasions beginning in February 2012, Moore sexually assaulted three children who were less than 13 years old.
Moore allegedly forced the children to watch pornographic movies and other explicit sexual activities, police said.
On Wednesday, Moore was arrested on charges of aggravated burglary, theft of a credit card and negligent use of a weapon.
Police said that on Sept. 5, Moore burglarized a border patrol agent's vehicle on the 500 block of Canyon Point Road. The agent's badge, handgun, credit card and other valuables were taken, police said.
On Oct. 31, Moore fired shots inside his home on the 1800 block of Rentfrow Avenue and then attempted to deceive investigators, police said.
Police recovered the stolen handgun from Moore's bedroom. They later discovered he used the stolen credit card at a local convenience store, police said.
Moore was served with an arrest warrant on the child sexual assault charges Thursday while he was already in custody at the Dona Ana County Detention Center, police said. He is being held with bail set at $50,000 cash only.
