Fugitive of the Week, Christopher James Lee, In Custody

CONCORD, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces the arrest of former Fugitive of the Week, Christopher James Lee. Lee, 46, was wanted on a parole violation warrant stemming from an underlying conviction for failure to register as a sex offender (NH RSA 651-B:9, III).

Lee was featured as the Department’s Fugitive of the Week on March 13, 2024. On Friday, May 17, 2024, Lee was arrested in Springfield, Vermont after a routine motor vehicle stop. Lee was arraigned on May 20, 2024, and did not waive his extradition. He is currently being held on $10,000 bail at Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield, VT pending a further hearing and return to New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Department of Corrections thanks the Springfield Vermont Police Department for their assistance with this case.

The Fugitive of the Week program was launched by the Department of Corrections in March of last year to encourage public assistance in locating individuals who have absconded from supervision. Each Wednesday, the Department shares information on a specific fugitive through various communications platforms, and with law enforcement through the New Hampshire Information and Analysis Center.
