HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Matthew Moss, age 37, of Warminster, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on January 31, 2024, by U.S. District Court Jennifer P. Wilson, to 151 months’ imprisonment on the charge of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Moss previously pleaded guilty and admitted to possessing approximately 273 grams of methamphetamine for distribution in the York County area in 2021. The charge stems from an investigation in which investigators purchased 140 grams of methamphetamine from Moss in November 2021 in York County. During investigators’ attempt to arrest Moss, Moss fled, leading law enforcement on a vehicular and foot chase. During Moss’s arrest, investigators recovered an additional 133 grams of 96-percent-pure methamphetamine from Moss’s vehicle.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the Springettsbury Township Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys David C. Williams and Johnny Baer.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities, and measuring the results.
