Concord, NH - Last evening, Domingo
Palma, 60 of Litchfield, NH was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals
Fugitive Task Force in Salem, NH.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force from the Boston Police
Department contacted deputy U.S. Marshals in NH requesting assistance in
locating and arresting Palma. Recent allegations came to light in Boston,
which led to the issuance of an arrest warrant for Palma for the offense of
rape of a child by force. Members of the task force conducted surveillance
at multiple locations and developed information on Palma’s whereabouts.
Palma was located at a work place in the 400 block of South Broadway Street
in Salem, NH, where he was arrested without incident by the Salem Police
Department along with other members of the Marshals Task Force.
Palma was transported to the Salem Police Department for processing and
charging as a fugitive from justice on the outstanding Massachusetts
warrant. Palma will be held at the Rockingham County Jail, pending his
initial court appearance in NH and eventual return to Massachusetts to face
these very serious allegations.
This arrest was a cooperative effort by several members of the U.S. Marshals
Fugitive Task Force, including the Boston, Salem, and Litchfield Police
Departments; Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and deputy U.S. Marshals.
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
