Longmont man, who prompted SWAT response, taken back into custody Monday for bond violation

An man who prompted a SWAT response Sunday morning after reportedly barricading himself in a Longmont home violated his bail bond and his protection order and was taken back into police custody Monday.

Andrew Todd Moore, 55, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, according to a police report. Moore was released on a $5,000 bond. Within four hours of his release, Moore violated his bail bond and a protection order, according to Longmont police Deputy Chief Jeff Satur. Moore was taken back to the Boulder County Jail.

Moore’s initial arrest happened around 5 a.m. Sunday in the 2100 block of Springs Place. Police responded to the area for a domestic violence call. According to a police report, Moore had been drinking and got into an argument with a woman. The woman told police the argument regarded Moore’s confession of an affair and his paranoia about the government. The woman accused Moore of pushing her and choking her with his hands.

Moore, who refused to come out of the home, was taken into custody after he surrendered around 10:45 a.m. Sunday. He was found at the bottom of some stairs with a gun nearby, according to prior reports. A robot secured the handgun.

According to an arrest affidavit released Tuesday, Moore’s most recent arrest was prompted when he was spotted on the edge of the property where the woman who had the restraining order against him lives. The woman reported that Moore was seen around 9:30 p.m. Monday and that he gestured to her “I LOV” and pointed at her twice, according to the affidavit.

Moore is scheduled to be in court Wednesday for a return filing of charges, according to online court records.
