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.
