First, “Fugitive of the
Week”, Robert Twombly, 38, was arrested last night by members of the
Alton Police Department at a local motel. Today, members of the U.S.
Marshal’s - New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force were able to track
down and arrest “Fugitive of the Week,” Richard Boden, 49, at a Nashua
On May 9, 2018, Robert Twombly had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on an outstanding Rockingham County arrest warrant for probation violations stemming from an original conviction on narcotic charges. After this feature, several tips were received pointing to several possible locations for Twombly. One of those locations was in Alton, New Hampshire. This information was shared with members of the Alton Police Department, who happened to encounter Mr. Twombly at the scene of another arrest at a local motel last night. At the motel, Twombly had initially provided a false name to officers but his true name was quickly realized and he was arrested on the outstanding Rockingham County warrant. Twombly was to be held in custody pending his initial court appearance at the Rockingham County Superior Court.
Back on May 2, 2018, Mr. Richard Boden had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week.” Boden was featured due to an outstanding Belknap County arrest warrant alleging the offense of aggravated felonious sexual assault. Additionally, it should be noted that Boden was already required to register as a sex offender due to a 2013 conviction for sexual assault. Today, members of the Marshals Fugitive Task Force followed up on several investigative leads in and around Nashua, NH. The task force was able to locate a job site that Boden was working at in a residential neighborhood of Nashua. The task force was able to quickly approach Boden and arrest him without incident. Mr. Boden was being transported to the Belknap County Jail, where he will be held pending his initial court appearance at the Belknap County Superior Courthouse.
These arrests were made with the combined efforts of the agencies that make up the U.S. Marshals – New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force including; Belknap, Hillsborough, Rockingham & Strafford County Sheriff’s Offices, the Greenfield Police Department, the Federal Protective Service, and deputy U.S. Marshals. This task force model of teamwork has been highly effective in locating fugitives throughout United States and the World. The task force continues to work tirelessly on fugitive cases that are important to the safety and well-being of the residents of New Hampshire and beyond.
Both of these “Fugitives 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.

These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.
