Today's ‘Fugitive of the Week’ Surrenders in Record Time

Concord, NH – Today’s “Fugitive of the Week” surrendered after being featured in the media. Henry Devine, 52, surrendered to U.S. Probation in Concord, NH this morning, where he was taken into custody after hearing that he was on the news and in the newspaper.

Devine was featured as this week’s “Fugitive of the Week” because he had an outstanding arrest warrant for violations of conditions of supervised release. Mr. Devine was on supervised release as a result of his conviction and sentence for a 2007 robbery and distribution of cocaine base case. Devine reported that he was contacted this morning by family members that had seen Devine featured as the “Fugitive of the Week.” Devine immediately contacted his probation officer and agreed to turn himself in and did that this morning.

As part of the U.S. Marshals fugitive investigation, Devine was featured just today as the “Fugitive of the Week.” The “Fugitive of the Week” was broadcasted on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, The Manchester Ink Link and is prominently featured on the internet. The “Fugitive of the Week” continues to be very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.

Devine is currently being held at the U.S. District Courthouse in Concord, NH on the outstanding arrest warrant and will be arraigned on this new charge later today.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,089 arrests (Updated as of 7/29/2015). These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.
