Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - A Florida fugitive who'd been missing for seven years was found living in Lexington County.

Lexington deputies said they took Jose Antonio Gonzales into custody Monday night after a Crimestoppers tip led them to a location on Bush River Road.

“Jose Antonio Gonzales had assumed a number of different identities while he was on the run,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “He’s been living in West Columbia as Hector Acosta for about two years.”

Gonzalez is now facing extradition back to Florida.
