U.S. Marshals 'Fugitive of the Week' Arrested in Bangor, Maine

Concord, NH - "Fugitive of the Week" Todd Donlin was arrested in Bangor, Maine this past weekend. Donlin caught the attention of officers as a highly intoxicated pedestrian. Donlin was initially detained by the Bangor officers in protective custody to ensure his own safety. After Donlin produced his identification, it was learned that Donlin was actually a fugitive from NH.

The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office had requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in an effort to locate and arrest Donlin. Mr. Donlin was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for a probation violation, stemming from his original conviction and sentence on drug charges. On August 15, 2013, Donlin was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader and the Nashua Telegraph and prominently featured on the internet.

This arrest was definitely made through the effort and diligence of the Bangor Maine officers. These officers were acting in the interest of Donlin’s safety, which ultimately led to the arrest of Donlin on his outstanding warrant. Donlin will be held at the Penobscot County Jail as a fugitive from justice, pending his return to Rockingham County, New Hampshire.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,523 arrests (updated 09/03/2013). 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.
