Sex Offender Caught: Mouthy fugitive busted in Cleveland

Sex Offender Caught: Mouthy fugitive busted in Cleveland

Tuesday morning, members of the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Tyrone Lamont Moses, age 27, in a residence in Cleveland.

Moses was wanted by the Richland County Sheriff's Office on an April 2007 indictment for failing to provide change of address, as a sex offender, and on a bench warrant for violating the terms of his probation, on an original charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

In 2006, Moses was convicted and sentenced to three years of probation with an 18 month prison sentence that was suspended.

Task Force Officers initiated a fugitive investigation in 2013 and determined that Moses was no longer in the Mansfield area.  Officers ran Moses several times in the Mansfield News Journal as a most wanted and recently received information that he may be in the Cleveland area.

Last week the task force received a tip that Moses was seen on tv talking to reporters about a recent shooting on the west side of Cleveland near Metro hospital.

Task Force Officers from the Richland County Division followed up on that information and coordinated efforts with the Cleveland Division of the NOVFTF.

On July 29, 2014 surveillance in that area located Moses and officers were able to observe him enter a residence on the 2700 block of Woodbridge Ave in Cleveland.

Task Force Officers made contact with the occupants of the residence and Moses was arrested without incident.

Moses was transported to the Cuyahoga County Jail to await extradition back to Richland County and may face additional charges in Cuyahoga County for living at that Woodbridge Ave residence for the past several years without registering his address as required by law.
