A Fresno man wanted for a 2014 murder has been arrested in Toppenish, Washington. 

On Tuesday, March 5th  around 3:30 p.m. the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office and the Toppenish Police Department received information that a wanted suspect was living in the town of Toppenish.

After conducting an investigation and surveillance, officers arrested 32-year-old Daniel Cervantes Cardenas without incident.

In April of 2014, the Superior Court of California issued a warrant for a gang related homicide that had occurred in Fresno. A Nation-Wide Arrest Warrant was issued for Cardenas.

Officials say he fled prosecution for almost four years. But information recently obtained showed he was living in the Toppenish area.

Cardenas is being held in the Yakima County Jail on the homicide warrant, pending extradition to California.
