This Week's 'Fugitive of the Week' in Custody

Concord, NH - This week’s 'Fugitive of the Week', Christopher Harrison was arrested this afternoon at a family members residence on Peabody Road in Derry, New Hampshire. This arrest was made by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force from the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office.

The Rockingham County Superior Court had issued an arrest warrant for Harrison based on his Failure To Appear to serve his sentence on an original conviction for Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated causing serious bodily injury. Harrison was originally given a deferred sentence by the court, so that he could get his personal affairs in order prior to serving his jail time. Harrison then failed to appear to serve the court imposed two year sentence.

As part of this investigation, Harrison was aired in the weekly feature known as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on November 14, 2012. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, the Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph and is prominently featured on the internet.

Today, The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force developed information that Harrison was staying at a family members residence in Derry. These efforts led investigators to an address on Peabody Road in Derry, NH. Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force from the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office went to this residence in an effort to locate Harrison. Harrison reportedly came to the door visibly upset and stated that he had seen himself on WMUR and was “waiting for you guys.”

Harrison was arrested without incident and immediately transported to the Rockingham County Jail to serve his sentence.

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.
