Another “Fugitive of the Week” Surrenders to U.S. Marshals After Being Featured in Media
NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH - This afternoon, last week’s “Fugitive of the Week,” Steven Sanders, 55, surrendered to the U.S. Marshals after being featured just last Wednesday.

Mr. Sanders had been wanted on an arrest warrant for violations of federal supervised release. Sanders is on supervised release as a result of his prior conviction and sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Sanders had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. 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. Sanders had received word that he was the “Fugitive of the Week” and decided that his best option was to surrender. Sanders is currently at the U.S. District Courthouse in Concord, NH awaiting his initial court appearance later this afternoon.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 7,029 arrests (Updated as of 12/18/2017). 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, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
