U.S. Marshals "Fugitive of the Week" Arrested by Alert Manchester Detectives

Concord, NH – “Fugitive of the Week” Thomas Golliver, 23 of Manchester, NH was arrested this afternoon by members of the Manchester Police Department. Golliver was wanted by the U.S. Marshals on an arrest warrant for violations of conditions of supervised release. Golliver was on supervised release as part of his conviction and sentence for a 2009 DEA case for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute Oxycodone.

This afternoon, two alert members of the Manchester Police Department observed who they believed to be Thomas Golliver walking on Beech Street. When the officers got out of the car in an attempt to confirm Golliver’s identity, Golliver attempted to flee on foot. Golliver was quickly apprehended and arrested. During a search after his arrest, Golliver was found to be in possession of a small quantity of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

As part of this investigation, Golliver was aired as the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force’s weekly feature known as the “Fugitive of the Week” on February 7, 2013. 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.

U.S. Marshal David Cargill Jr., said “In addition to the public airing of the “Fugitive of the Week” wanted poster, it is also sent state-wide to all law enforcement agencies. It is often this additional widespread distribution that helps law enforcement locate and arrest these fugitives.” Cargill continued, “We are extremely happy with both our public and our law enforcement partnerships. The public and the members of law enforcement are our eyes and ears on the streets, 24 hours a day.”

Golliver was arrested and processed by the Manchester Police Department and was transported by the U.S. Marshals to U.S. District Court in Concord for his initial court appearance. Golliver is expected to be held in federal custody pending his revocation hearing in U.S. District Court at a future date. Additional charges by the Manchester Police Department are also pending for his attempt to flee and possession of the hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,370 arrests (updated: as of 03/05/2013). 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.
