The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Nathaniel Mosley, age 44, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Sylvia H. Rambo on December 3, 2014 to 168 months’ imprisonment, a $1,200 fine and three years of supervised release following his release from imprisonment after pleading guilty to armed robbery and use of a firearm during a crime of violence in June 2014.

According to U.S. Attorney Peter Smith, on December 3, 2013, Mosley along with co-defendants Torey Dobbin and George Stoney robbed the Cracker Barrel restaurant on Brindle Road in Harrisburg at gunpoint.  The Susquehanna Township Police Department was alerted after a caller advised that individuals were inside the building robbing the restaurant.  Officers arrived almost immediately and set up a perimeter around the building.  Shortly thereafter three men wearing masks exited the restaurant and fled on foot.  After a brief pursuit, all three were apprehended.  Officers located the stolen money and seized three firearms. 

Both Dobbin and Stoney have pled guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Capital City Safe Streets Task Force and the Susquehanna Township Police Department.   The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daryl F. Bloom.
