NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – Shortly after being featured this morning as the “Fugitive of the Week,” Jared Woodman, 36 years-of-age surrendered to the US Marshals in Manchester. Mr. Woodman was being sought on an outstanding federal arrest warrant alleging the distribution of controlled substances including fentanyl and cocaine.

Woodman had just been featured this morning as the “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.

Shortly after the feature, members of the fugitive task force were conducting interviews in the Manchester area in an attempt to locate Woodward. As a result of this investigation, contact was made with Woodman and he indicated that he would meet investigators in front of a store on Valley Street in Manchester. Approximately 30 minutes later, Mr. Woodman surrendered to investigators. Woodman was arrested without incident and transported to the U.S. District Court in Concord for processing and holding pending his initial court appearance.

This arrest was made with the cooperative support of several members of the U.S. Marshals – N.H. Joint Fugitive Task Force including, members from the Hillsborough. Rockingham, and Strafford County Sheriff’s Offices, the Federal Protective Service, along with deputy U.S. Marshals.
