Fugitive of the Week Arrested by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Somerville, MA

Concord, NH – Early this morning, members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Fugitive of the Week, Christopher Corona in Somerville, Mass. Corona, 45 was last known to be residing at a residence in Concord, NH. Corona was being sought by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to appear on a charge of armed robbery. Corona was charged with an armed robbery, stemming from an Incident that occurred in Manchester, NH in November, 2012. Corona had fled the State of New Hampshire in an effort to avoid being arrested on this very serious charge

As part of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive investigation, Corona was aired as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on November 07, 2013. 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. Information developed by investigators led the task force to his girlfriend’s apartment on Sycamore Terrace in Somerville, Mass. During a search of this residence, Corona was located attempting to hide at the end of the bed and was arrested without any further incident.

Corona was turned over to the Somerville Police Department, where he will be processed as a fugitive from justice. Corona will go to court today and will likely be held, pending his return to Hillsborough County, New Hampshire to face the armed robbery charge

Several members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts participated in this arrest, including task force officers from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, Mass. State Police, and officers from the Somerville Police Department, along with deputy U.S. Marshals from both Mass. And NH.
