'Fugitive of the Week' Escapee Arrested by the New Haven Police Department

NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – On Monday evening, New Haven (CT) Police Department responded to a report of two people trespassing at a construction site. A short distance from the construction site, a male and a female were stopped. Both people did not have any identification and the female identified herself as “Stacy McGuire.” The police department was unable to give them a misdemeanor summons for the trespassing, because they did not have any positive identification. Both “McGuire” and her companion were transported to the detention facility for processing. Through this process, the officers were able to positively identify Stacy McGuire as Belknap County escape fugitive, Holly Wilson.

Wilson had been wanted by the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office since July 3rd, when she had cut off her electronic monitoring bracelet as part of the community corrections program. Wilson was on community corrections due to a drug offense. Investigators had been actively trying to locate Wilson since the escape and this past Wednesday, she was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week.” Numerous tips were received indicating that Wilson had fled New Hampshire, which greatly extended the search area.

Fortunately for investigators in New Hampshire, the New Haven police officers went the extra step in determining the true identity of McGuire. Since Wilson’s arrest by the New Haven Police Department, she has been held in custody and charged as a fugitive from justice based on the New Hampshire escape warrant. Wilson will have a court hearing in New Haven to determine whether she will fight her return to New Hampshire to face the Belknap County escape charge.

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 7,253 arrests (Updated as of 04/29/2018). 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.
