CONCORD — Fugitive of the Week David Dionne, 40, who was last known to be living in the Concord area, was arrested Wednesday morning by the Manchester Police Department.
The Concord Police Department had requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals-N.H. Joint Fugitive Task Force in locating and arresting Dionne, a fugitive sex offender. Dionne was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for sex offender registration violations. He is required to maintain his sex offender registration due to a 2004 conviction for attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault.
As part of the investigation, Dionne was featured as the Fugitive of the Week on Sept. 5. The Fugitive of the Week is featured in The New Hampshire Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV and the Internet.
The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force had received many tips that pointed to the Manchester area. The fugitive task force spent many hours and days following up on the tips. All the information was shared with the Manchester Police Department, a participant of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
This cooperative effort paid dividends when an alert Manchester officer who was conducting sex offender compliance checks observed Dionne on foot near the intersection of Merrimack and Lincoln streets. Dionne was arrested without incident. Dionne was processed at the Manchester Police Department on the outstanding warrants and will be held pending his court appearance.
