Concord,
NH
– The United States Marshals Service is very happy to
announce that this week’s “Fugitive of the Week” for New Hampshire has
surrendered. Jeremy David Michael, 46 years-of-age, currently of Tilton,
NH surrendered to members of the U.S. Marshals along with the Tilton
Police Department. Michael was being sought on Belknap County (NH)
Superior Court warrant for failing to appear on January 25, 2021 on
charges of 1st degree assault with a deadly weapon, reckless conduct
with a deadly weapon and criminal threatening.

Mr. Michael had
been featured just yesterday, February 3rd as the “Fugitive of the
Week,” which was aired on WTPL-FM, 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 over 500
fugitives since its implementation in 2007. Additionally, the “Fugitive
of the Week” was distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers
in New Hampshire.

This morning Michael called the United States
Marshals and asked how he could take care of this warrant? The deputy
that spoke to Mr. Michael stated that we could pick him up and take him
to the Belknap County Jail and start the process there. Michael agreed
to this arrangement and a deputy US Marshal along with a Tilton Police
Officer facilitated his surrender.

Mr. Michael was brought to
the Belknap County Jail where he was processed and is being held on his
outstanding warrant. Michael will have a video arraignment with the
Belknap County Superior Court later today.

United States
Marshal, Nick Willard said, “Surrendering truly is a positive step in
the right direction to resolve your legal problems.” Willard continued,
“The United States Marshals Service continues to advocate for people to
take responsibility for their actions by turning yourself in if you know
you have an arrest warrant, just like Mr. Michael did today.”

Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 8,218
