Fugitive Sex Offender With Multiple Warrants Tracked Down in North Carolina

NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – This afternoon, one of New Hampshire’s “Fugitives of the Week” was located and arrested in North Carolina. Justina Nicole Jensen, 30, was being sought on multiple outstanding arrest warrants, including; possession of a controlled drug, sex offender violations X2, as well as a NH State Parole warrant after being convicted and sentenced to prison on another narcotic related offense. Ms. Jensen is required to register as a sex offender due to a 2013 Hillsborough County North conviction for prostitution of a victim under the age of 18.

Jensen had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on October 17th, which was aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, the Manchester Ink Link, The Rochester Voice 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.

After being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” the Marshals Fugitive Task Force here in New Hampshire had received numerous tips pointing to the Charlotte, North Carolina area. With every tip, investigators got closer to Jensen. Today, these tips led the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to Jensen at a local motel on Reagan Drive in Charlotte, where she was arrested without incident. Jensen will be charged as a fugitive from justice based on the outstanding NH arrest warrants and will be held at the Mecklenburg County Jail pending her initial court appearance and eventual return to New Hampshire. Additional sex offender registration charges are possible in North Carolina, since she was not registered as a sex offender in that state.

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.
