Concord, NH – On Monday, last week’s Fugitive of the Week, Daniel Scott King, surrendered to the Northwood Police Department. Daniel King, 24, who was last known to live in Northwood and Manchester, NH was wanted on an outstanding Merrimack County arrest warrant for possession of heroin and false report to law enforcement. Although this is not a major case, King’s criminal history warranted the attention of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
As part of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive investigation, King was aired on April 17, as the 'Fugitive of the Week'. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat and is prominently featured on the internet.
After King was featured as the Fugitive of the Week, members of the Fugitive Task Force had spoken extensively with concerned family members regarding King. The efforts of both family members and the fugitive task force resulted in King’s surrender on Monday to the Northwood Police Department on this outstanding criminal matter.
