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.
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.
