Another federal fugitive’s run from the law is over after being arrested in Pulaski County Monday night, with the help of the Rolla Police Department’s SWAT unit, the Pulaski County PCERT (tactical) unit and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The fugitive, James “Jimmy” Moore, who was wanted for federal firearm violations, was apprehended in the area of Highway T and Riverside Road northwest of Waynesville at approximately 9:30 p.m. June 24.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents had been working with Pulaski County sheriff's deputies for the past week in an attempt to locate and apprehend Moore.
Officials worked diligently in gathering information about Moore, which lead them to the Highway T and Riverside Road location.
A female accomplice was with Moore at the time of his arrest, and both were found to be in possession of an assault-type weapon, along with a material believed to be a controlled substance.
Moore was released to federal agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm.
Deputies arrested the female accomplice, who is currently incarcerated in the Pulaski County Jail, where she is awaiting formal charges.
