Crime roundup | Police: City man had stolen gun in car



TORRANCE – State police are searching for a suspected drug dealer now charged with killing a man who allegedly tried to rob him in a Westmoreland County mobile home.

Ronell Lamar Moses Jr., 20, of Penn Hills, Allegheny County, is wanted on criminal homicide and other charges filed by troopers in Greensburg. Moses is charged with killing Matthew Volk, 24, of West Wheatfield Township, Indiana County, on Saturday.

Police allege that Volk arrived to rob Moses at a mobile home in Derry Township where Moses was staying with a couple who knew Volk. That couple and Volk’s girlfriend, who police said drove him to the scene, are charged with conspiring in the robbery because police allege they knew Volk intended to rob Moses. Their complicity led to Volk’s death, police allege.
