U.S. Marshals 'Fugitive of the Week' From 2010 Arrested After Tip

Concord, NH - 'Fugitive of the Week' Gerald Intonti, 53, was arrested tonight at a residence on Hopper Road in Acton, Maine.

Back in October, 2010, the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office had requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force in an effort to locate and arrest Intonti. Intonti was being sought on an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear on a forgery of checks charge. This case was undertaken by the task force due to Intonti’s prior criminal history and the fact that his whereabouts were completely unknown.

As part of this investigation, Intonti was aired in the weekly feature known as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on October 14, 2010. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph and prominently featured on the internet.

Although an extensive period of time has passed since the ‘Fugitive of the Week’ program featuring Intonti was aired, the internet allows for endless discovery of the wanted poster featuring Intonti. It was an internet search that led a tipster to contact the U.S. Marshals that provided the information necessary to locate Intonti. This information was shared with Task Force Officers from the Maine State Police, who were able to locate and arrest Intonti tonight without incident on Hopper Road in Acton, Maine.

Intonti is currently being processed at the York County Jail where he will be held pending his initial court appearance as a fugitive from justice on the outstanding Strafford County warrant.

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.
