[ARCHIVED] Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team Locate Wanted Fugitive in Wisconsin


On November 29, 2016, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Team apprehended Miguel J. Gonzalez, 26, of the 1000 block of North Village Drive, Round Lake Beach, who was wanted on a Lake County arrest warrant ($100,000.00 bond) for aggravated robbery (class 1 felony).

On November 21, 2016, Fox Lake Police Officers obtained the arrest warrant for Gonzalez, stemming from a November 20th robbery, which occurred in Fox Lake. After obtaining the arrest warrant, the warrant was filed with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Division.

Members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team, who are also task force members of the U.S. Marshals Service - Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF), determined Gonzalez was hiding at ‘The Cove of Lake Geneva Resort’ in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team, USMS-GLRFTF, Lake Geneva Police Department, and Walworth County Sheriff’s Office, successfully took Gonzalez into custody, after locating him in his hotel room.

Gonzalez was transported to the Walworth County Jail, where he will be held pending an extradition hearing.

Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
