Theft Investigation in Centralia Leads To Two Arrests

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Two people arrested following an investigation of a theft of a TV from the Travis Pitchford apartment on Lamplight Drive in Centralia this week have been formally charged in Marion County Court.  

17-year-old Kellie Whitehouse of North Hickory was charged with two counts of unlawful violation of an order of protection as well as theft.  One count accused her of coming within 250 feet of the Pitchford home.  The other count claims she made personal contact with Pitchford.  Whitehouse is also charged with theft of the TV.  

22-year-old Curtis Moghadam of West Kell in Centralia was charged with an unrelated felony charge of failure to register as a sex offender for not notifying police within three days that he had moved.   He was not charged in connection with the theft of a TV and threats he allegedly made towards Pitchford.    

Moghadam remains in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond.  Whitehouse posted $500 cash bond and was released.  As part of her release, Whitehouse has been ordered to have no contact with Pitchford.  She had the public defender appointed to represent her.  Moghadam is already represented by a private attorney.
