Nashua Police Arrest Second 'Fugitive Of The Week'
Lauren Munday featured this past Wednesday
 
NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH - Last night, officers from the Nashua Police Department arrested fugitive, Lauren Munday, who was injured as she attempted to flee from authorities. Lauren Munday, 28, was wanted on two outstanding arrest warrants. The first warrant was issued by Hillsborough County for probation violations, as a result of a conviction and sentence for first degree assault. The second warrant was issued by the NH State Police for being a material witness in a high profile investigation and failing to appear.

Shortly after 8:00pm last night, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force received a credible tip from an anonymous tipster that Ms. Munday was currently at an apartment in the 200 block of Main Street in Nashua. The US Marshals immediately contacted the Nashua Police Department and requested assistance in locating Munday. Officers quickly responded to the apartment and Munday attempted to flee via the roof. Munday jumped from the roof and seriously injured her leg and was arrested. Munday has been transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries and will be held in custody pending her initial court appearance on these outstanding warrants.

Munday had been featured as the U.S. Marshals, “Fugitive of the Week” just this past Wednesday. This feature produced several tips leading investigators to multiple addresses in multiple states. These tips did not pan out until the tip from last night, in which the caller recognized Munday and her distinctive Ruby tattoo on her shoulder.

The “Fugitive of the Week” is aired each Wednesday 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.

U.S. Marshal David Cargill, Jr., said “We are very lucky to have the “Fugitive of the Week” program, which has allowed us to help locate and arrest numerous fugitives since its inception.” Cargill continued, “This program is successful due to the willingness of the people, the media and the law enforcement working together to help bring these fugitives to justice.”

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.
