    Internet Helps FBI Nab Fugitive Among Ten Most Wanted, Sought On LB-Related Child Sex Charges

    (May 13, 2007) -- A fugitive on the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted List for acts allegedly committed against children in Long Beach has been arrested in Canada...captured in part through the power of the internet.

    The FBI credits a Canadian resident with using the FBI's website ( which contained Goldberg's photo and a description of his alleged crimes to identify the fugitive and verify the outstanding arrest warrant against him.

    In a release, the FBI says Richard Steve Goldberg, 60, was sought by LB authorities in connection with charges alleging that he engaged in sexual activities with several female children under the age of ten in 2001. Goldberg also faces federal charges alleging that he produced images of these sex acts which were later found on his computer.

    Goldberg is now being held in Montreal by Canadian authorities on an alleged immigration violation for which he's expected to be in court on May 14. The FBI said it anticipates he'll be extradited to the U.S. to face state and federal charges which include allegations of sexual exploitation of children (production of child pornography), unlawful flight to avoid prosection, lewd acts upon a child (six counts) and possession of child pornography (two counts).

    The FBI release said:

    Acting on source information provided by the FBI in Los Angeles, law enforcement authorities in Montreal arrested Richard Steve Goldberg, one of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives, who is charged in connection with various crimes against children...

    The source then contacted the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office and provided the information as to where Goldberg could be located. Agents with the FBI’s Los Angeles Office then contacted the FBI’s Legal Attache stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa, Canada, with details as to Goldberg’s whereabouts. On Friday, May 11th, the FBI’s Legal Attache in Ottawa requested assistance from Canadian law enforcement authorities in Montreal. Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Montreal Police Service (MPS) responded immediately and arrested Goldberg without incident at the address provided by the FBI source. Goldberg, who had been living under a fictitious name, was arrested by the RCMP and MPS for violating Canadian immigration laws.

    The successful arrest of Goldberg is a result of a joint effort by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Montreal Police Service, Interpol Ottawa, Immigration Canada, the Long Beach Police Department, the FBI’s Legal Attache in Ottawa, Canada, and the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office.

    As of March 31, 2007, there have been 486 fugitives on the "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list. Four hundred and fifty-six individuals appearing on the list have been located. The arrest of Goldberg represents the 149th Top Ten Fugitive located as a direct result of citizen cooperation.
