'Fugitive of the Week' Arrested by Concord Police & U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force

Concord, NH - 'Fugitive of the Week' Corey Porter was arrested late this morning in Penacook, NH by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, including members from the Concord Police Department.

Shortly after Corey Porter was alleged to have committed an armed robbery on Hall Street in Concord, NH on October 11, 2012, the Concord Police Department requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals - N.H. Joint Fugitive Task Force to assist in his location and arrest. Porter was suspected of brandishing a firearm during this robbery and an arrest warrant for Armed Robbery was issued.

As part of this investigation, Porter was aired in the weekly feature known as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on October 18th. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader and prominently featured on the internet. Throughout this investigation, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the Concord Police Department knew that Porter was still in the area, but was constantly avoiding law enforcement. Dedicated officers from both the Concord Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force worked relentlessly to get this dangerous fugitive off of the streets.

Fortunately, this morning, the Concord Regional Crimeline received a tip that Porter was staying at a residence on Blackwater Rd in the Penacook section of Concord. The Concord Police Department and U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force quickly responded to the described residence and were able to safely locate and arrest a sleeping Porter. Porter was brought to the Concord Police Department for processing on the outstanding arrest warrant pending his initial court appearance.

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.
