Concord, NH – The U.S. Marshals Service – New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force is pleased to announce that a violent fugitive from Hillsborough County was arrested in North Carolina and is currently being held pending extradition proceedings. An April 6, 2023 press release seeking information leading to the fugitive’s apprehension intensified the nationwide manhunt, and the U.S. Marshals Service – Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force were able to make the arrest on May 2, 2023.
Deandre “Fathead” Anglade, 20, was wanted by the Goffstown Police Department for attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, and burglary charges relating to incidents on or around October 2022. However, Anglade also shunned court hearings related to an attempted murder and six charges of first-degree assault with a firearm that occurred in Manchester back in June 2019. Although he was 16 years old at the time, a New Hampshire grand jury certified Anglade as an adult in this case, and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for his failure to appear in court.
The U.S. Marshals Service elevated Anglade to a major case, and a national media campaign followed. “Casting a wide net is one way the Marshals Service can help our local partners find their most sought-after fugitives,” stated Billy Tufts, who leads the U.S. Marshals Service New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force. “A national campaign such as this one, prioritizes the work of our agency and allows us to tap into the resources our offices throughout the country have developed in their respective communities.”
For Anglade, the concentrated efforts of the U.S. Marshals Service and its law enforcement partners uncovered his trail in Red Springs, NC. Anglade imbedded himself in a trailer park community on McQueen Road. Once surveillance teams were able to positively identify Anglade, a U.S. Marshals Service arrest team surrounded the structure he was in and attempted to call him out. Despite being known to carry a firearm, Anglade surrendered without a fight.
After his arrest, Anglade was transported to Robeson County Detention Center. According to Robeson County Sheriff’s Office records, he remains in custody while awaiting extradition proceedings that will see him returned to New Hampshire.
Anglade had been aired as a “NH Most Wanted” 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. All featured fugitives are distributed throughout the New Hampshire law enforcement network. The assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service Domestic Investigations Branch and Office of Public Affairs were crucial to this media campaign and greatly impacted the strategic efforts of the District of New Hampshire’s investigation.
Since the inception of the U.S. Marshals - New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, local law enforcement and media partnerships have resulted in over 8,700 arrests. 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.
