U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Assists in Arrest of Concord Drug Fugitive

Concord, NH – The United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force is pleased to announce the arrest of 52 year old Hon Luu of no fixed address. Luu was wanted on a warrant issued by the Concord Police Department for the sale of a controlled narcotic drug, crack cocaine. Luu was arrested without incident on Wednesday morning by members of the Tilton Police Department and Merrimack County Sheriff’s Department at 263 Laconia Road in the town of Tilton, New Hampshire. The arrest of Luu was the result of a collaborative effort led by the Detective Bureaus of the Concord, Laconia and Tilton Police Departments in addition to the United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force, and the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Department. Luu was arraigned in the Concord District Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Luu is also facing charges in the Belknap County Superior Court and is currently awaiting trial on three counts of dealing prescription narcotics. If convicted in Belknap County, Luu faces a maximum prison sentence of over 10 years in the New Hampshire State Prison, in addition to deportation from the United States back to his home country of Vietnam. The Belknap County Attorney, Melissa Guldbrandsen said, “We take drug related offenses in Belknap County very seriously. This arrest proves that Luu’s illicit activities extend beyond the borders of Belknap County and as such I intend to hold him completely accountable for his conduct.”

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.
