FBI Apprehends Wanted San Joaquin County Fugitive Moises Galvan Gonzales

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Sacramento Field Office announces the arrest of Moises Galvan Gonzalez, 41, a Mexican national who fled a murder prosecution in San Joaquin County. This morning, February 7, 2020, Gonzalez was arrested without incident at a residence in Delhi, a town in Merced County. The FBI, San Joaquin Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit, Kern County Sheriff’s Office, and Merced County Sheriff’s Office worked collaboratively to locate Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is accused of participating in a shooting of a man at a Tracy dairy farm on June 15, 1998. The San Joaquin County District Attorney filed a homicide charge against Gonzalez on June 18, 1998. A federal arrest warrant charging Gonzalez with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued on October 1, 2003.

The FBI continues to work with its law enforcement partners to apprehend criminals charged with state crimes who then flee the jurisdiction. The FBI’s Wanted webpage or the FBI’s Wanted app carry photos and descriptions of additional fugitives wanted by the FBI.

The wanted poster is available for a limited period.
