'Fugitive of the Week' Arrested in Concord Apartment

 Concord, NH - “Fugitive of the Week,” Kevin Poole, 36, was arrested early this morning by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in a Concord, NH apartment. Poole was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” back on February 12, 2015, when the arrest warrant originally was issued. Poole was being sought on an outstanding federal arrest warrant for violations of conditions of supervised release. Kevin was on supervised release based on his prior conviction and sentence for making false statements during the acquisition of a firearm.

It was based on the “Fugitive of the Week” feature that the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force received multiple anonymous tips indicating that Kevin Poole had been seen in and around Concord, NH. The NH Joint Fugitive Task Force was able to take this information and develop even more information, which ultimately lead to the successful and safe arrest of Poole this morning. Poole was located and arrested without incident while living in an apartment on Downing Street in Concord.

As part of this U.S. Marshals fugitive investigation, Poole was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” which 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 was prominently featured on the internet. The “Fugitive of the Week” continues to be a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.

Mr. Poole was brought to the Federal Courthouse in Concord, NH for processing and holding, pending his court appearance this afternoon.

Today’s arrest was made by several task force officers from Manchester and Concord Police Departments, Belknap, Hillsborough, Strafford & Rockingham County Sheriff’s Offices, along with deputy U.S. Marshals.

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. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
