United States Marshals Task Force Arrests "Fugitive of the Week"
 
CONCORD, N.H. – “Fugitive of the Week,” Tyler Webber, 24, was arrested this morning in Rochester, NH by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

Webber had been wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the Strafford County Sheriff’s Office, for a bail violation on an original offense of conspiracy to commit robbery. Webber was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” this past Wednesday. Investigators were following up on leads this morning, when information was developed that placed Webber staying with friends at a motel on Route 11 in Rochester. Acting on this information, members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force from the Strafford & Rockingham County Sheriff’s Offices, along with deputy U.S. Marshals located and arrested Webber without incident at a Rochester Motel. Mr. Webber was then transported to the Strafford County Department of Corrections where he will be held pending his court appearance.

Webber had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” just this past Wednesday, 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 6,340 arrests (Updated as of 05/03/2016). 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.
