The Livermore Police Department announced an arrest after a man stole $3,500 worth of little league equipment.
According to police:
On Wednesday, March 15, 2023, Livermore Police responded to a report of a burglary at the Granada Little League fields on Murdell Lane. League organizers reported that a suspect had broken into the umpire storage shed the night prior and stole $3,500 worth of equipment.
The following day, on Thursday, March 16, 2023, a Livermore Police School Resource Officer took a report from a high school student about a stolen electric bike. The student said he left his e-bike in a bike storage area on campus the day prior. The bike was valued at $2,400.
After reviewing surveillance video, Livermore Police identified the suspect who stole the e-bike as 29-year-old Jared Moynahan of Livermore.
On Monday, March 20, 2023, Livermore Police’s Crime Prevention Unit authored a search warrant for Moynahan and his home in south Livermore. During the search of Moynahan’s home, officers recovered most of the umpire equipment stolen from Granada Little League, the high school student’s e-bike and other stolen property.
On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, Livermore Police arrested Moynahan at another residence in Livermore. After taking him into custody, Livermore Police conducted a probation search of that residence and located more stolen property from multiple victims including two scooters, three Ring Doorbell cameras and a credit card. Some of the property was determined to be stolen from a vehicle burglary. Livermore Police is currently in the process of contacting all the victims.
Moynahan is being held on a no-bail Ramey Warrant and faces several charges including Grand Theft, Possession of Stolen Property, Burglary, and Felony Possession of Ammunition.
Moynahan has an extensive criminal history and is known to Livermore Police. Prior to his arrest on Wednesday, Moynahan was out on bail on two counts of felony possession of a stolen vehicle.
Livermore Police will not be releasing his booking photo to comply with California Penal Code Section 13665.

According to an April 24, 2018 post by Livermore Police, Jared Moynahan, who was then 25-years-old, was a suspect in a home invasion robbery in 1500 block of Wagoner Drive. He fled the scene and entered a residence in the 900 block of Coronado Way. He refused to come out which prompted a SWAT response and crisis negotiation team to respond.
Moynahan refused to exit the residence and chemical agents were used in an effort to have him exit the residence peacefully. At about 330pm, SWAT team members and a K9 officer entered the residence and took the suspect into custody without incident.
