Fugitive of the Week Arrested by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Hooksett

Concord, NH – Early this morning, members of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force arrested this week’s Fugitive of the Week, Juan Zayas-Diaz in Hooksett, NH. Zayas-Diaz, a 59 year old man whose last known address was in Manchester, NH was being sought on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH. This arrest warrant was issued for supervised release violations stemming from an original conviction and 15 year federal prison sentence for cocaine sales.

As part of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive investigation, Zayas-Diaz was aired as yesterday’s 'Fugitive of the Week'. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch and is prominently featured on the internet. Several tips provided by the public were the key to locating Zayas-Diaz at his place of employment, where he was working as a mechanic at a garage on Hooksett Road in Hooksett, NH. This information was acted on by the task force this morning, which ultimately led to Zayas-Diaz’s arrest without incident.

Zayas-Diaz was transported to the U.S. District Courthouse in Concord, NH, where he will be processed and held pending his initial court appearance later today.

Several members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force including task force officers from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, along with deputy U.S. Marshals participated in this investigation and arrest today.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,523 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.
