[Attachment] Concord, NH - A four plus month search for 'Fugitive of the Week', Charles Wilson Fowle, 40 years-of-age, ended this morning in Manchester, NH. Mr. Fowle had been wanted on outstanding federal supervised release violations stemming from his original conviction and sentence in U.S. District Court for distribution of oxycodone and marijuana.

Fowle had been featured as the 'Fugitive of the Week' back on June 19, 2019. This feature 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' is distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers.

After the feature was aired, the U.S. Marshals Service followed up on several tips and developed numerous leads through interviews with family, friends and associates. This morning, members of the U.S. Marshals - NH Joint Fugitive Task Force checked an apartment of a known associate of Fowle located in the 700 block of Douglas Street in Manchester, NH. At this residence, Fowle was located sleeping in a back bedroom where he was arrested without incident.

Fowle was transported to the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH for processing, and was holding pending his initial court appearance later today.

This month's long effort and arrest was made with the cooperative support of several members of the U.S. Marshals - NH Joint Fugitive Task Force including, members from the Belknap, Hillsborough, Strafford, & Rockingham County Sheriff's Offices, the Greenfield Police Departments, along with deputy U.S. Marshals.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 7,751 arrests (Updated as of 07/25/2019). 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.
