'Fugitve of the Week' Surrenders
After Intensive Investigation
by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force
Last night, “Fugitive of
the Week”, James Labombard, 42, surrendered to the Nashua Police
Department. Mr. Labombard had been featured as the “Fugitive of the
Week” on March 28, 2018. Labombard was wanted on an outstanding Nashua
Police Department warrant for failing to maintain his sex offender
registration. Labombard is required to register as a sex offender after
he was found guilty of six counts of felonious sexual assault in 1998.
After being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” several leads were received and the fugitive task force blanketed the Nashua and Manchester areas in search of Mr. Labombard. Although these efforts did not result in the task force finding Mr. Labombard, he definitely felt the pressure. It was due to these efforts and his being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” that Mr. Labombard decided to surrender to authorities last night.
This investigation was a combined effort of numerous agencies that are members of the fugitive task force including; Belknap, Hillsborough. Rockingham & Strafford County Sheriff’s Offices, Federal Protective Service and deputy U.S. Marshals along with members of the Nashua and Manchester Police Departments.
Mr. Labombard was held in custody pending his initial court appearance.
James Labombard had been featured on March 28, 2018 as the “Fugitive of the Week”. 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.
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.
