Concord, NH – The United States Marshals Service is very happy to announce the arrest of one of New Hampshire's "Fugitives of the Week," Jesse Davis. Jesse Daniel Davis, 38 years-of-age, was arrested early this morning after being found using the name, Jesse Kimball at a Lewiston, Maine hotel. Davis had been wanted on a Strafford County (New Hampshire) Superior Court warrant for failing to appear on a charge of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon (vehicle) that was issued on December 30, 2020.
Mr. Davis had been featured on January 6th as the "Fugitive of the Week," which 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" was distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers in New Hampshire.
This arrest is a direct result of the multiple tips received this weekend pointing investigators to hotels on Lisbon Street in Lewiston, Maine.
