'Fugitive of the Week', David Dionne, Located & Arrested by Manchester Police Department

Concord, NH - 'Fugitive of the Week' David Dionne, 40 whom was last known to be living in the Concord area was arrested this morning by the Manchester Police Department.

The Concord Police Department had requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force in locating and arresting fugitive sex offender, David Dionne. Dionne was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for sex offender registration violations. Dionne is required to maintain his sex offender registration due to a 2004 conviction for attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault.

As part of this investigation, Dionne was aired as last week's 'Fugitive of the Week' on September 5th. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph and prominently featured on the internet.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force had received numerous tips that pointed to the Manchester area. The fugitive task force had spent numerous hours and days following up on each tip. All of this information was shared with the Manchester Police Department which is a very active participant of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. This cooperative effort paid dividends this morning, when an alert Manchester officer that was conducting sex offender compliance checks happened to observe Dionne on foot near the intersection of Merrimack and Lincoln Streets. Dionne was arrested at this location without any incident. Dionne processed at the Manchester Police Department on the outstanding warrants and will be held pending his court appearance.

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.
