Concord, NH – Early this morning, members of the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint

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.
