FBI Media Alert: Albuquerque Man Wanted on Federal Firearms and Drug-Trafficking Charges

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Elliott Estevan Peralta of Albuquerque, who is wanted on federal firearms and drug-trafficking charges.

In early November 2022, the FBI Violent Gang Task Force in Albuquerque executed a search warrant at Peralta’s residence and found two firearms, approximately 1,099 grams of methamphetamine, and 105 grams of blue “M 30” pills containing fentanyl.

At the time, Peralta escaped the residence and eluded capture.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Peralta in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico on November 7, 2022.

Anyone with information about Peralta’s whereabouts should not approach him, but contact the FBI immediately at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
