Fugitive kidnapping ring leader Noé Jafet Moore García was arrested by police officers in Mexico City on Tuesday and was flown to the state of Chihuahua to face his outstanding kidnapping and aggravated murder charges. Mexican authorities say he was involved in the abduction of two members of a Mennonite community in Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua. One of these individuals was murdered.

On 25 September 2018, Moore García ordered the kidnapping of a 79-year-old member of the religious community. His captors kept him hostage for eight days before his family was able to pay a ransom. Nine months later, Moore García ordered the kidnapping of another community member (Abraham Harms Peters) outside of a restaurant in Cuauhtémoc. The victim was killed by his captors on 24 June 2019.

Moore García was able to get information on his victims through his brother Jorge, who worked as an accountant for the Harms Peters family and several other Mennonite families. According to investigators, Moore García was accessing his work files and relaying this information to his kidnapping ring. Investigators have not been able to confirm if Jorge was working in complicity with his brother. But they did say that the Mennonite families in the area trusted Jorge with their bank accounts and businesses.

Moore García was arrested shortly after the murder, but Chihuahua judge Fabiola Domínguez Chavira released him. The judge argued that the evidences against him were not strong enough and said that Moore García was subject to torture by his detainees. However, the judge was subject to death threats for approving his release.

Fearing future legal persecution, Moore García fled to Central Mexico and went into hiding. Chihuahua's Attorney General's Office appealed the release and reinstated an arrest warrant. Authorities soon discovered that Moore García was in Mexico City and in Netzahualcoyotl, State of Mexico.

The announcement of Moore García's capture was made public by Chihuahua Governor Javier Corral Jurado in the "Chihuahua Seguro" program. He congratulated the state's Anti-Kidnapping Unit for its work on the case and was grateful that State of Mexico Governor Alfredo del Mazo collaborated in the arrest.
