U.S. Marshal’s 'Fugitive of the Week' Surrenders After 10 Months on the Lam

NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – The United States Marshals Service is very pleased to announce that two-time “Fugitive of the Week” surrendered this past Friday at the Laconia Police Department.

“Fugitive of the Week,” Marissa Anne Rondeau, 26 years-of-age, was wanted on multiple outstanding arrest warrants issued out of the Belknap and Grafton County Superior Courts for failing to appear on offenses involving narcotics violations, assault with a deadly weapon (vehicle) and falsifying physical evidence. The New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force had previously arrested Rondeau on these same charges after being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on November 25, 2020. After that arrest, Rondeau was released on bail and absconded.

Rondeau had once again been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on June 30, 2021, which was aired on WTPL-FM, WNTK-FM, WTSN-FM, WEMJ-FM, 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” was distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers in New Hampshire.

The NH Joint Fugitive Task Force had made several attempts to locate Ms. Rondeau in New Hampshire, and it was determined that she had moved to Florida with family, which was beyond extradition limits. Communications between Rondeau and local law enforcement in Florida led Rondeau to make the decision to return to New Hampshire on her own and get these legal matters resolved, which she did this past Friday.

Since the inception of the U.S. Marshals - New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 8,542 arrests (Updated as of 12/31/2021). 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.
