BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Agents with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, North Precinct General Crimes Unit, have arrested 18-year-old Richard Eugene Cooper-Moser, of Cocoa, for occupied burglary.

The investigation began on Friday (March 8) when the victim discovered that someone had entered her Port Saint John residence, while she was sleeping and stole multiple items.
