Bradford County Man Arrested Following Standoff


Kathy Whyte/WNBF News

A Bradford County man is in custody following an armed standoff at a home in Pike Township December 13.

Pennsylvania State Police were called to a home on Augusta Drive at around 7 p.m. where 53 year old Eugene Moore allegedly was holding a 58 year old woman, a 37 year old man and a 20 year old Towanda woman, armed with a shotgun, threatening to kill them and himself and accusing the three of being responsible for his marriage troubles.

Troopers found the three in a bedroom at the home while Moore was in the kitchen and took the victims out of the house through the window.

Authorities say after the victims were removed to a safe location, Moore came out of the house, armed with a shotgun then retreated back inside as troopers ordered him to drop the gun.

When Moore came out a second time, he was not armed and eventually obeyed orders to lay on the ground, but still physically resisted being taken into custody.

State Police say once secured, it was found Moore had multiple rounds of ammunition in his possession and a loaded shotgun was a short distance away.

Moore is charged with terroristic threats, unlawful restraining, false imprisonment, recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest and harassment.

Moore was sent to the Bradford County Jail on $150,000 bail and has a preliminary hearing set for December 17.
