“Fugitive of the Week” Arrested by US Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Lowell, Mass.
CONCORD, NH – This afternoon, “Fugitive of the Week,” Jared Taylor Roberts, 27, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force during a vehicle stop in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Roberts had been wanted on an outstanding Rockingham County arrest warrant for probation violations as a result of a prior heroin conviction and sentence.

Roberts had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on August 30th. The “Fugitive of the Week” had been 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.

Mr. Roberts was turned over to the Lowell Police Department, so he could be charged as a fugitive from justice based on the outstanding NH arrest warrant. Roberts will be held without bail and have his initial court appearance tomorrow at Lowell District Court. If Roberts waives his extradition, he will be returned to Rockingham County where he will have his court hearings regarding the probation violations.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,806 arrests (Updated as of 5/25/2017). 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.
