LATEST: Man’s own dashboard camera shows him committing burglary, PBSO says


A Royal Palm Beach man accused of burglary has his vehicle’s dashboard camera to thank for landing him in the Palm Beach County Jail, according to an arrest report.

Xavier Inocencio Moran, 25, is accused of using a baseball bat first to break into the Sally’s Beauty Supply in Royal Palm Beach on April 5, then on a safe in order to attempt entry.

More than three hours after the alleged burglary, on State Road 7 near Southern Boulevard, Moran was involved in a crash on Belvedere Road. Moran told a Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy that he was cut off by another driver and could prove it through his dashboard camera.

Moran signed a consent waiver to search the camera.

While reviewing the video footage, the deputy observed Moran’s 2014 Nissan backing into a parking space in front of the Sally’s Beauty Supply store. The video then allegedly shows Moran taking a bat from the car’s trunk and breaking the glass door leading into the business.

The report states that Moran was arrested Tuesday at the Palm Beach County Courthouse, but does not detail the circumstances.

Records show that Moran was also arrested on April 7 after he allegedly threatened to shoot his brother with an assault rifle and pistol. Moran and his brother live with their parents in Royal Palm Beach.

During the incident, Moran allegedly pointed the gun at his father and threatened to harm his parents as well as his brother.

After he was arrested, Moran allegedly ran from authorities. Despite being restricted by handcuffs, he jumped over a fence and attempted to hide behind bushes, according to a sheriff’s report.

Moran is facing two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of battery, resisting an officer without violence and escape in the April 7 incident. He was released from jail Sunday under court-ordered supervision.
