implementation in 2007. Additionally, the “Fugitive of the Week” was
distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers in New Hampshire.
After multiple days of searching by the fugitive task force,
“Fugitive of the Week,” Stefan Robert Ingerson, 32 years-of-age, who was

leave the hotel and get into a car. This car was stopped by law
enforcement prior to it leaving the parking lot. Mr. Ingerson was
arrested without incident.

court appearance. This court appearance will be conducted at the U.S.
