CONCORD — "Fugitive of the Week" Michelle Smith, 25, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force on Tuesday.
The arrest was made after the task force received several tips indicating that she was residing on Blossom Street in Nashua. The task force canvassed Blossom Street, which ultimately led investigators to an apartment where Smith was living, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Smith was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Hillsborough County Superior Court for a probation violation, stemming from an original conviction and sentence for sales of heroin.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office requested the assistance of the fugitive task force to locate and arrest Smith. As part of this investigation, Smith was featured as the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force's feature known as the "Fugitive of the Week" on June 13.
The "Fugitive of the Week" is published weekly in the New Hampshire Union Leader.
At the time of arrest, Smith and her friend were found to be in possession of the "Fugitive of the Week" newspaper article from the Union Leader.
The arrest was made by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force from the Belknap, Hillsborough and Rockingham County Sheriff's Office, and the Greenfield Police Department, along with deputy U.S. Marshals, according to the release.
Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, more than 5,370 arrests have been made, ranging in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.
