Moving files with same initial name to the match folder

I would like move automatically files witch are scenes of Landsat 8 (each scene has 9 bands/files + MTL) inside a folder, to folders which have the same name from initial name's files (these directories need be created).
Each band file is Ziped separately, beyond the metadata (.txt). Next line shows a instance from the files names that already exist and a good name for a directory.
e.g., to directory LO82270682016229.
I tried too a script which needs imports the module RE, see web page <moving multiple files>. But, unsuccessfully, the python doesn't works - It not even shows RE module when I type import RE + enter.
The CPU's softwares are Arcmap 10.1 - Python 2.7.2 - Windows 8.

>>> import shutil

... import os


... source = 'C:\Teste_Auto_CLEIA\Ima_compactadas\Landsat'

... dest1 = 'C:\Teste_Auto_CLEIA\Ima_compactadas\L82270682016229'

... dest2 = 'C:\Teste_Auto_CLEIA\Ima_compactadas\L82270692016229'


... files = os.listdir(source)


... for f in files:

... if (f.startswith("LO82270682016229") or f.startswith("LC82270682016229")):

... shutil.move(source, dest1) #12 line

... elif (f.startswith("LO82270692016229") or f.startswith("LC82270692016229")):

... shutil.move(source, dest2)


Runtime error

Thanks in advance!
