Cleveland man indicted for allegedly committing five armed robberies in December 2018

U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

A Cleveland man was indicted for allegedly committing five armed robberies in December 2018.

Dwyon Moore, 50, was indicted on five counts of Hobbs Act robbery and five counts using a firearm in relation to a crime of violence.

Moore is accused of using a firearm to rob the following businesses in Cleveland: Wonton Gourmet on Payne Avenue on December 12; of D.O. Summers Cleaners and Laundry on Carnegie Avenue on December 14; Dark and Lovely Hair and Beauty on Cedar Avenue on December 14; Bo Loong on St. Clair Avenue on December 14, and Good Times Café on East 55th Street on December 14, according to the indictment.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. PSN was reinvigorated in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

This case was investigated by the Cleveland Division of Police, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office’s Crime Strategies Unit. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney John C. Hanley.

An indictment is only an allegation and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
