Lincoln-Lemington woman on fugitives list arrested in Larimer

A Lincoln-Lemington woman who was placed on the Allegheny County Sheriff Department's “Most Wanted” list of fugitives was arrested on Wednesday as she rested on a living room couch with her infant granddaughter, sheriff's Sgt. Douglas Clark said.

Danyell Moore, 38, was placed on the list after a bench warrant was issued for incidents in October involving her 10-year-old son, Clark said. The boy was placed in the custody of his grandmother after he told school officials that his mother had disappeared the night before, Clark said.

Moore also is accused of taking the boy without his grandmother's knowledge, prompting her to file a missing persons report, Clark said. The boy was returned unharmed four days later.

Deputies made the arrest after receiving a tip Wednesday morning that Moore could be found in a home on Meadow Avenue in Larimer, Clark said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
