Morgantown Police Caught A Man Suspected Of Killing Someone In Philadelphia

Members of the Morgantown Police Special Response Team and the Mon Metro Drug Task Force caught a suspect in a murder in Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon.

According to a press release from the MPD, detectives found 46-year-old Philadelphia resident Ronald Tony Johnson on the 300 block of High Street at about 2:30 p.m. They had heard that he might be in the area.

The press release said that Johnson had a warrant out for his arrest related to a murder and was thought to be dangerous. No one knows how long he may have been in the Morgantown area.

According to information from the Office of Media Relations and Public Affairs of the Philadelphia Police Department, Johnson is the suspect in a shooting that happened in Philadelphia on June 4 and left Orane Moseley with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest, stomach, and head.

Moseley was taken to the local hospital, but he died there on June 19 from his injuries.

Johnson was charged with general murder, conspiracy, VUFA (violation of the uniformed firearms act), and PIC on November 3.

Johnson was arrested in Morgantown without any problems, but when he was being processed, MPD officers found a small baggie with a “white powdery substance” and another small baggie with “another unknown substance,” according to a criminal complaint.

The bags were found to have 2.4 grams of cocaine and 3.3 grams of heroin inside of them. Officers said in the complaint that both were individually wrapped and ready to be given out.

In addition to the charges in Pennsylvania, Johnson is also being charged with having a controlled substance with the intent to sell it and running from the law.

Johnson was brought before a judge in Monongalia County Magistrate Court on Wednesday. He is being held at the North Central Regional Jail on a $250,000 bond.

“Even though a large number of police officers in the area may have caused concern, care was taken to make sure that no bystanders were in danger during the execution of the arrest warrant,” the MPD said in a press release. By Dominion
