CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Dustin Tyler Moore, 24, of Buckhannon, West Virginia, was sentenced to four months in prison after he harbored and concealed a wanted armed robbery suspect, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

Moore pled guilty in August 2014 to one count of “Concealing Person from Arrest” after a United States Marshals Service investigation revealed that Moore used his vehicle to transport an armed robbery suspect for whom the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department had obtained a felony arrest warrant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Zelda Wesley prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
