CONCORD, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces the arrest of former Fugitive of the Week, Chad James Dandeneau. Dandeneau, 49, was wanted on a probation violation warrant stemming from underlying conviction of felon in possession of a dangerous weapon (NH RSA 159:3:I). 

Dandeneau was featured as the Department’s Fugitive of the Week on January 10, 2024.
