Final Suspect in Organized Shoplifting Group Arrested by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Brooklyn, NY

Concord, NH – Bedford NH Police Department fugitive, Dwayne Dollar, 27, was arrested this morning in Brooklyn, NY by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

The Hillsborough County (NH) Sheriff’s Office and the Bedford, NH Police Department both requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force in locating and arresting fugitive, Dwayne Dollar. Dollar was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for Organized Retail Crime Enterprise and Theft.

Dollar is the final outstanding suspect in a large scale shoplifting ring that was operating though-out New England and possibly up and down the east coast. This group was targeting Staples office supply stores and stealing items such as ink cartridges, computers, calculators and other items. The financial losses to these stores are likely measured in the tens of thousands of dollars or more.

Information developed by the Bedford, NH Police Department was provided to the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. This information was forwarded to the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Brooklyn, NY where Dollar was ultimately located and arrested without incident today.

Dollar will be held on as a Fugitive from Justice in New York, pending his extradition hearing. Once the New York courts order Dollar to be returned to the State of New Hampshire, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office will transport him back to New Hampshire to face these numerous charges.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 4,392 arrests. 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.
