U.S. Marshals 'Fugitive of the Week' Surrenders

Concord, NH – This week’s “Fugitive of the Week” Joshua Fowler, 34 , of Hampstead, NH surrendered this morning at the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Department. Fowler was wanted on several outstanding arrest warrants throughout southern NH for burglaries and thefts.

Fowler was just aired yesterday as this week’s U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force’s weekly feature known as the “Fugitive of the Week”. 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.

Investigators were getting close to arresting Fowler, when he surrendered this morning at the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Department. Fowler indicated that all of the publicity caused by his being the “Fugitive of the Week” ultimately led to his surrender this morning.

U.S. Marshal David Cargill, Jr. said “We are very pleased that Mr. Fowler made the decision to surrender this morning” Cargill continued, ”and we are even prouder of the success of the Fugitive of the Week program. It is with the endless cooperation and support of the media and the people that this program thrives.”

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,370 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.
