Officers Capture ‘Fugitive Of The Week’ In Dover, N.H.
CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) — “Fugitive of the Week” Jose Garcia was arrested without incident late Sunday afternoon by the Dover Police Department and N.H. Probation and Parole officers, the U.S. Marshals Service said in a prepared statement.
Garcia was arrested at a Baker Street home after callers reported seeing the fugitive.
Garcia was featured as the U.S. Marshals Service “Fugitive of the Week” in New Hampshire beginning Thursday. He was sought on an outstanding arrest warrant for probation violations, as well as a warrant for a domestic violence assault. The 33-year-old was on probation for a prior conviction and sentence for stalking.
Information that led to the arrest of Garcia was provided by tipsters who contacted probation officers. The tips led investigators to the Dover address, where Garcia was taken into custody. He was arrested on the outstanding probation warrant and was brought to the Somersworth Police Department to be processed on the outstanding arrest warrant for domestic assault.
Garcia will be held at the Strafford County Jail until his initial court appearance later this week.
Several member agencies of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force assisted in Garcia’s arrest, including N.H. Probation and Parole, the Dover and Somersworth police departments, the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office, and deputy U.S. Marshals.
