The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Moreno a Level 3 threat, which means he is a “high-risk repeat offender and possible threat to public safety.”
His current address is unknown and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Moreno is described as being 5-foot-6 weighing approximately 165 pounds.
