The U.S. Marshals - New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force is requesting public assistance in its efforts to locate and arrest U.S. and NH fugitive, Aaron Butler. Butler, whose federal supervision stems from a conviction in 2019 for conspiracy to distribute heroin, violated his release conditions when Newport (NH) Police Department found probable cause to charge Butler with “felon in possession” of multiple firearms, as well as possessing and distributing fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine. Butler was previously incarcerated in 2006 for assault with a dangerous weapon. However, prison does not seem to prevent Butler from dealing drugs or assaultive behavior, as he has charges for both while incarcerated. Butler is believed to be in Carroll County, NH, though his network extends throughout New England. The public and law enforcement should use caution if encountering Butler, as he is considered armed and dangerous.
If you see someone who resembles Butler, please contact the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, or your local police.
