Concord, NH - 'Fugitive of the Week' Corey Porter
was arrested late this morning in Penacook, NH by members of the U.S.
Marshals Fugitive Task Force, including members from the Concord Police
Shortly after Corey Porter was alleged to have committed
an armed robbery on Hall Street in Concord, NH on October 11, 2012, the
Concord Police Department requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals -
N.H. Joint Fugitive Task Force to assist in his location and arrest. Porter
was suspected of brandishing a firearm during this robbery and an arrest
warrant for Armed Robbery was issued.
As part of this investigation, Porter was aired in the weekly feature known
as the 'Fugitive of the Week' on October 18th. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is
broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader and prominently featured on
the internet. Throughout this investigation, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task
Force and the Concord Police Department knew that Porter was still in the
area, but was constantly avoiding law enforcement. Dedicated officers from
both the Concord Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force
worked relentlessly to get this dangerous fugitive off of the streets.
Fortunately, this morning, the Concord Regional Crimeline received a tip
that Porter was staying at a residence on Blackwater Rd in the Penacook
section of Concord. The Concord Police Department and U.S. Marshals Fugitive
Task Force quickly responded to the described residence and were able to
safely locate and arrest a sleeping Porter. Porter was brought to the
Concord Police Department for processing on the outstanding arrest warrant
pending his initial court appearance.

these partnerships have resulted in over 4,392 arrests. These arrests have
ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders,
probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.
