A tip led Carrollton police to a man who walked away from a halfway house nearly a year ago.

The Carrollton Police Department received an anonymous tip about the possible location of Kalien Luke Moore, 29, who left a Louisville halfway house in July 2012, to go to work and never returned, a Carroll County Sheriff's Office release said.

Carrollton Police Chief Mike Willhoite contacted Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman before going to the Lock Road residence Wednesday to investigate the tip.

Carrollton Police Officer Daniel Embry and KSP Trooper Dave Roberts also responded to the residence where Moore was believed to be staying.

"As Officer Embry and myself got to the back, we noticed Moore had already run out the back door and was approximately 100 yards in front of us," Kinman said.

Embry was able to catch Moore after a brief pursuit.

Moore was arrested on a parole violation warrant and lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center. Moore was originally convicted on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property and wanton endangerment.

"We ask people to continue to utilize these (anonymous tip) options, and we appreciate their willingness to help," Kinman said.
