Concord, NH – “Fugitive of the Week” Mario Camacho, 25 of Manchester, NH was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force this afternoon in 300 block of Keller Street, in Manchester. Camacho was wanted by the NH Parole Board on an outstanding arrest warrant for parole violations stemming from his original conviction and sentence for the possession and sales of narcotics.

As part of this investigation, Camacho was aired as the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force’s weekly feature known as the “Fugitive of the Week” on May 16, 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.

The ‘Fugitive of the Week’ program often leads to numerous tips on the location of many fugitives. In this case, a tip from the public and the perseverance of investigators led to the location and the ultimate arrest of Camacho by authorities. U.S. Marshal David Cargill, Jr., said “Once again, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force got their man.” Cargill continued, “The men and women of the fugitive task force work diligently to bring these highlighted fugitives, along with many others to justice in an expedient and safe manner!”

This arrest by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force was made with the dedicated investigators that make up the task force. Participants in this investigation were from the Rockingham, Belknap and Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Offices; the Greenfield and Manchester Police Departments, along with Deputy U.S. Marshals.
