For immediate release

Carlos Flores, Assistant Chief Inspector

Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force
(619) 792-0627

Columbia, SC - The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force (CRFTF), in coordination with the Lexington Police Department (LPD) and Aiken County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO), Feb. 29 arrested an Aiken man wanted by Lexington authorities for sex crimes against a child.  

Jesus Sevilla Moreno, 38, was wanted for criminal solicitation of a child, sexual conduct with a minor, providing obscene material to a minor, aggravated assault, and crimes against property. 

CRFTF investigators utilized various investigative techniques and determined Sevilla Moreno to be in the Aiken area. CRFTF, AKSO, LPD, and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigators proceeded to the 900 block of New Holland Road in Aiken and attempted to arrest the suspect.    

When law enforcement attempted to take Sevilla Moreno into custody, he resisted arrest, physically fighting with investigators, and attempted to flee on foot but was caught and arrested. 

Sevilla Moreno was transported to the Aiken County Detention Center.  

The USMS Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force began operations in January 2018. The CRFTF has partnership agreements with four federal and 68 state and local agencies and operates in North Carolina and South Carolina. The CRFTF has apprehended more than 8,900 fugitives since its inception and is always striving to make communities safer.
