After Seven Years on the Run, US Marshals Capture Man; Traffic Stop in Morgantown Led to Arrest

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on August 11, 2017 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

A Pennsylvania man who has been on the run since 2010 was arrested last night in Morgantown by US Marshals and Morgantown Police.
 
Phillip Mosley, 37, of Brownsville was arrested at 11 p.m. in a traffic stop. Mosley was spotted by a Deputy Marshal near Chestnut Street following a separate fugitive arrest.
 
After identifying the fugitive, the Deputy requested assistance from the Morgantown Police Department to arrest the subject.
 
Mosley entered a vehicle and departed the area, but was stopped a short time later. During the arrest, Mosley was in possession of multiple fake IDs, but immediately admitted his true identity. Mosley was wanted for absconding from his Pennsylvania State Parole in 2010 and has been a fugitive since that time.
 
In 2015, the Marshals Service and Morgantown Police attempted to arrest Mosley in the parking lot near the Boston Beanery in Morgantown. Mosely fled in a vehicle and then crashed the vehicle near Krepps Park. Mosley was able to avoid capture on foot and remained a fugitive until last night.
 
“This case highlights the phrase you can run, but you can’t hide” said US Marshal Gary Gaskins. “Once you are on the Marshals Service radar, it is only a matter of time before you are located and arrested."
