Fugitive of the Week Arrested at Local Hotel

NHFTF LogoConcord, NH – A short time ago, this week’s Fugitive of the Week, Patrick David Lord, was arrested at a local hotel in Bow, NH, by members of the NH Joint Fugitive Task Force. Patrick Lord, 45, who was last known to live in the Concord and Manchester, NH areas, was wanted on an outstanding federal arrest warrant for violation of conditions of supervised release. Lord was on supervised release as part of his sentence for a prior conviction for aggravated identity theft and other associated charges.

As part of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive investigation, Lord was aired just today, as the 'Fugitive of the Week'. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat and is prominently featured on the internet.

After Lord was featured today, as the Fugitive of the Week, members of the Fugitive Task Force had received telephone calls that provided information that Lord was still in the Concord area and was possibly staying at a local hotel. Members of the fugitive task force canvassed the local hotels in the Concord/Bow area and discovered that Lord was staying at a hotel in Bow, NH. As members of the fugitive task force were preparing to enter the room, Lord exited the room to go outside to “check the weather,” at which time Lord was arrested without incident.

This arrest was made by deputy U.S. Marshals and a Task Force Officer from the Greenfield Police Department.

Lord was transported to U.S. District Court in Concord, NH for processing and holding pending his initial court appearance later today, on this outstanding charge.

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.
