'Fugitive of the Week' Surrenders at Federal Courthouse

NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – Late this morning, this week’s featured “Fugitive of the Week”, Jeffrey Paul Tarallo, 52 years-of-age, surrendered at the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH. Mr. Tarallo had been wanted on an outstanding federal arrest warrant issued on October 29, 2019 alleging violations of his conditions of supervised release. Tarallo was on supervised release as a result of his conviction and sentence for making false statements during the acquisition of a firearm.

This morning, Mr. Tarallo was featured as this week’s “Fugitive of the Week.” This feature 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” continues to be 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.

Shortly after Tarallo was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” he was apparently contacted by several people indicating that he had an outstanding warrant. Mr. Tarallo did the right thing and immediately contacted his probation officer and indicated that he would be surrendering at the U.S. District Court in Concord. Mr. Tarallo did in fact surrender at approximately 11AM and is currently being held in custody of the U.S. Marshals pending his initial court appearance later this afternoon.

As part of the weekly radio show, we greatly encourage people to do the right thing and surrender when they learn they have an outstanding warrant. Generally speaking, warrants do not go away. Warrants need to be resolved in court and that can usually only be done in the presence of the wanted person. The court does look at surrendering in a positive light and will often take that into consideration when determining if a person is eligible for bail. We would like to thank Mr. Tarallo for doing the right thing in an effort to get this matter resolved.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 7,751 arrests (Updated as of 07/25/2019). 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.
