Concord, NH - 'Fugitive of the Week'
Jason Henderson was arrested late this evening in Southbridge, MA by members
of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
In May, 2012, the Strafford County Sheriff's Office requested the assistance
of the U.S. Marshals - NH Joint Fugitive Task Force to assist in the
location and arrest of fugitive, Jason Henderson. Henderson was wanted on an
outstanding arrest warrant for Failure to Appear for an original charge of
assault on a juvenile.
As part of this investigation, Henderson was aired in the weekly feature
known as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on May 24. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is
broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, the Union Leader and prominently featured on
the internet. The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force determined that
Henderson had fled the State of New Hampshire to an unknown location.
This evening, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force received information
from a concerned citizen indicating that Henderson could be found living in
an apartment in the 300 block of Hamilton Street in Southbridge,
Massachusetts. This information was quickly provided to members of the U.S.
Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Massachusetts. Members of the fugitive task
force along with the Massachusetts State Police and the Southbridge Police
Department were able to safely locate and arrest Henderson without incident.
Henderson was turned over to the Southbridge Massachusetts Police Department
to be charged as a fugitive from justice on the outstanding Strafford County
(NH) warrant. Henderson will face a judge on Monday in Dudley District Court
on the fugitive from justice charge.
"Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force are extremely pleased with
this arrest, as it has been a long time in the making. We are very grateful
for the public's overwhelming willingness to help and we can't thank them
enough", said U.S. Marshal David Cargill, Jr.
