U.S. Marshals 'Fugitive of the Week' Arrested by Kingston Police Department

Concord, NH – This past Saturday, “Fugitive of the Week” Tucker Cockerline, 22, was arrested by the Kingston, NH Police Department.

This arrest was made after the Kingston Police Department received an anonymous tip indicating that Cockerline was currently at a family member's residence on Marshall Road. Police Officers responded to this address based on the tip and located and arrested Cockerline on the outstanding arrest warrant.

Cockerline had been wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Rockingham County Superior Court for failure to appear to serve an imposed sentence on a conviction for conspiracy to distribute controlled drugs.

Earlier this year, the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office had requested the assistance of the fugitive task force to locate and arrest Cockerline. As part of this investigation, Cockerline was aired as the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force’s weekly feature known as the “Fugitive of the Week” on February 14, 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.

Cockerline is currently being held at the Rockingham County Jail pending his court appearance and will commence serving his prison sentence in the very near future.

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.
