Fugitive of the Week 2023 Year in Review

CONCORD, NH – The New Hampshire Fugitive of the Week program wraps up its inaugural year. The Department launched its Fugitive of the Week program on March 15, 2023, and over the past 41 weeks has shared its weekly submissions via radio, social media, and other media distribution methods. These efforts have proven successful and have resulted in 24 arrests to date. These arrests are related to an array of charges that range from assaults, kidnapping, narcotics charges, larceny, weapons violations, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.

Statewide the New Hampshire Department of Corrections’ fugitive program is overseen by 11 Field Services district offices. The Fugitive of the Week program represents only one small part of the daily work done by members of the Field Services team, including probation parole officers. The Department of Corrections Division of Field Services provides supervision to individuals placed on probation, parole, and administrative home confinement. Probation parole officers assist supervisees in establishing law-abiding lives while monitoring their behavior through office, home, work, and other contacts.

In total, 24 former Fugitive of the Week offenders were arrested and taken into custody. Of those 24, two individuals turned themselves in after seeing the Fugitive of the Week announcement, 11 were arrested for narcotics related charges, nine for violent crime charges including assaults and kidnapping, three for larceny charges, and one for a weapons charge. Ten fugitives were arrested by local New Hampshire police and sheriff’s departments while three were arrested in Vermont, one was arrested in Maine, and one was arrested in South Carolina. Many of these arrests were the result of tips received from the general public.

Below you will find 15 Fugitives of the Week from 2023 that remain at large including six violent crime assaults, three sex offenders, and two armed robbery violators. The public is reminded not to attempt to apprehend these individuals themselves and to report any information to the NH Department of Corrections, local police department or call 9-1-1.
 
The New Hampshire Department of Corrections will continue to spotlight the Fugitive of the Week program every Wednesday via email, radio, and on their Facebook, Instagram, and X (formerly Twitter) social media accounts.
