BRENTWOOD - A Sandown man listed by the U.S. Marshal's Service as the 'Fugitive Of The Week' turned himself in Friday morning on charges that he burglarized seven homes in Derry, Londonderry and Hampstead.

Joshua Fowler, 34, made a brief court appearance Friday morning in Rockingham County Superior Court, where his bail was set at $20,000 cash or corporate surety.

Fowler turned himself in on Friday morning at the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office in Brentwood.

A grand jury indicted Fowler in September 2011 on seven counts of burglary, for allegedly breaking into homes between October 2009 and March 2010.

He appeared in court on Friday morning to be arraigned before Judge N. William Delker with his attorney Mark Stevens.

Prosecutors say Fowler broke into his first home in Hampstead sometime during October 2009 then carried out the other six burglaries between February and March 2010.

In the first two burglaries, prosecutors have not given the exact dates of the break-ins, according to court records.

Court documents say that Fowler may not have acted alone in the burglaries, but so far he is the only one charged in the case.

He was charged as being either a principal or accomplice in the seven cases.

Fowler is facing Class B felonies for each of the burglaries. If convicted he faces a potential 3 -to-7 year prison term and a $4,000 fine on each of the charges.
