Fugitive caught hiding under bed in Jaffrey

CONCORD — A man featured Tuesday as the fugitive of the week was arrested Wednesday after investigators found him hiding under a bed at a family member’s home in Jaffrey.

James Michael Porter Jr., 42, was wanted on warrants from U.S. District Court for escape, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

He was serving a sentence from a 2010 conviction for interstate transportation of stolen property when he left a Manchester halfway house on Nov. 27 and never returned.

Investigators with the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force developed information that led them to the relative’s North Street home in Jaffrey where Porter was arrested late Wednesday morning.

Porter will be required to complete his federal prison sentence for the prior conviction, in addition to any sentence imposed on the new escape charge, authorities said.
