BUFFALO, Mo. (WDAF) -- A southwest Missouri man is charged with a felony after he allegedly lied about possibly having COVID-19 to avoid being arrested.
Larry Moore, 47, is charged with making a terrorist threat.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Dallas County sheriff’s deputies went to Moore’s house on March 20 to investigate a disturbance complaint.

Court documents say Moore had an outstanding warrant -- but he was not arrested after telling deputies he was awaiting results from a test for the coronavirus. He was arrested later that night after a witness told police he heard Moore acknowledge he had lied about the test.
