'Fugitive of the Week' Arrested by Tilton Police Officers
NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH - This afternoon, “Fugitive of the Week,” Hayden Moon, 24, was arrested by the Tilton Police Department. Moon was wanted an outstanding arrest warrant on charges of obstructing governmental operations and reckless conduct. These charges were brought as a result of an incident on October 28th in Belmont NH, in which Moon is alleged to have fled from a traffic stop and dragged the Belmont Officer as he fled.

As part of the U.S. Marshals fugitive investigation, Moon was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on November 2nd. The “Fugitive of the Week” 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. The “Fugitive of the Week” has been a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007. Additionally, the “Fugitive of the Week” is distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers.

The “Fugitive of the Week” feature did provide numerous leads, which were quickly followed up on by numerous members of the fugitive task force, including the NH State Police. This afternoon, it was officers from the Tilton Police Department that conducted a traffic stop on a car in their town. During this stop, one of the occupants of the vehicle was arrested for being in possession of narcotics. During the booking process, it was determined that the name that was initially provided was false and that the individual in custody was the “Fugitive of the Week,” Hayden Moon. After processing, Moon was transported to the Belknap County Jail for holding pending his initial court appearance.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,539 arrests (Updated as of 10/18/2016).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.
