Marshals Task Force and Rochester Police Arrest 'Fugitive Of The Week'
 
NHJFTF logoConcord, NH - “Fugitive of the Week,” Kyle Henderson, 23, was arrested at about noon time today in Rochester, NH by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and several officers from the Rochester Police Department.

Henderson had been wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office, for a probation violation for an original offense of burglary. Shortly after being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” this past Wednesday, Henderson contacted the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Henderson stated that he would surrender to the task force on Thursday morning. Henderson failed to surrender on Thursday as he had arranged.

After Henderson failed to surrender on Thursday, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force took up the hunt for Henderson again. After several hours of searching, Henderson was eventually located riding in a taxi in Rochester, NH. Task Force Officers from the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office and several officers from the Rochester Police Department stopped the taxi and arrested Henderson without incident. Henderson was transported to the Strafford County Department of Corrections; where he will be held pending his court appearance.

Henderson had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” just yesterday, which was aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, The Manchester Ink Link and prominently featured on the internet. This program has been a remarkably successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,216 arrests (Updated as of 12/24/2015). 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.
