Concord, NH - This afternoon, “Fugitive of the Week,” Terry Wayne Breeding, 55, was arrested by the Kentucky State Police in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Breeding was wanted on an outstanding Nashua Police Department arrest warrant charging him with sex offender registration violations, a duty to report, as well as being an unregistered sex offender in the State of Kentucky.
As part of the U.S. Marshals fugitive investigation, Breeding was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on August 31st. The “Fugitive of the Week” was aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, The Manchester Ink Link and prominently featured on the internet. The “Fugitive of the Week” has been a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.
We were very fortunate that some people that met Mr. Breeding in Kentucky did a quick internet search which turned up the US Marshal’s “Fugitive of the Week” wanted poster. It was a tipster that notified the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force here in NH that made this arrest possible. The Marshals task force contacted local law enforcement in Kentucky and arranged for Mr. Breeding to be arrested for failure to register as a sex offender there. The Kentucky State Police arrested Breeding without incident and transported Breeding to the Larue County Detention Facility in Hodgenville, KY, where he is currently being held on a charge of being an unregistered sex offender in Kentucky. The Nashua Police Department has requested that the Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office extend the extradition limits so Breeding can be returned to New Hampshire to face his charges here as well.
Mr. Breeding is required to register as a sex offender for life, due to multiple convictions in 2002, for aggravated felonious sexual assault & sexual assault on a child under 16. U.S. Marshals Senior Inspector Mark Lewis said “Breeding is a Tier 3 sex offender and is considered to be in the highest risk category for re-offense.” Lewis continued, “The U.S. Marshals Service take these cases very seriously and always makes them the highest priority, in an effort to ensure the safety of the public.”
Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,340 arrests (Updated as of 05/03/2016).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.
