|Marshals Task Force Arrests Fugitive After 12+ Years On The Run!|
Early this morning, the
U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested fugitive, Justin Randall, 49,
in Effingham, NH. Randall has been on the run since the issuance of a
parole warrant in 2004. At that time, Mr. Randall was on parole for
receiving stolen property. Since 2004, Randall has amassed other
warrants, including a 2009 Carroll County arrest warrant for failing to
appear on a child neglect case; a 2010 Carroll County arrest warrant for
sexual assault – forcible fondling and most recently a 2017 arrest
warrant for a Wakefield, NH burglary.
The U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force was requested to assist in this investigation, due to the elusiveness of Mr. Randall. Today, members of the task force conducted surveillance in the area of AMS Way in Effingham, NH. It was during this surveillance that a male was approached for questioning, and he fled on foot into the woods, which was filled with a lot of deep snow. Task force officers were able to quickly apprehend this man and learned that he was Justin Randall.
Mr. Randall was transported to the Wakefield Police Department for processing and holding, pending his transportation to the Carroll County Jail.
U.S. Marshal, David Cargill said, “The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force takes great pride in locating and arresting dangerous fugitives every day and I am happy to see that after 12 years on the run, we were able to arrest Mr. Randall without incident and bring him to face justice.” Cargill continued, “I am also thankful to our task force partners from the Strafford & Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Offices, the Greenfield Police Department & the Federal Protective Service that were able to safely make this arrest today.”
Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,628 arrests (Updated as of 12/27/2016). 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.
