Concord,
NH
– The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force is happy to announce
the arrest of Belknap County fugitive, Logan McCallister Graham in
Lebanon, New Hampshire by the U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task
Force. Graham had just been featured yesterday as this week’s “Fugitive
of the Week.”

As part of this search for Graham, he was featured
as the “Fugitive of the Week” on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. This
feature was aired on WTPL-FM, WNTK-FM, WTSN-FM, WEMJ-FM, The Union
Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Manchester Information, the
Manchester Ink Link, The Rochester & Lebanon 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 also to be distributed statewide to all law
enforcement officers in New Hampshire.

Graham, 26 years-of-age, was last known to live
in Laconia, NH when he failed to appear in the Belknap County Superior
Court on a charge of 2nd degree assault on a child under the age of
thirteen. The arrest warrant for Mr. Graham was issued on August 4th,
which was just recently turned over to the task force to locate and
arrest him. After being featured yesterday as the “Fugitive of the
Week,” a lot of information was developed pointing to an apartment in
Lebanon, NH. Late this morning, members of the NH Joint Fugitive Task
Force were able to locate and arrest Graham at a residence on Spencer
Street in Lebanon. Although Graham initially attempted to close the door
on the task force and indicated he would not be arrested, he was quickly
subdued and taken into custody.

After Mr. Graham’s arrest, he
was transported directly to the Belknap County Jail, where he was held
pending his initial court appearance on this serious charge.

U.S.
Marshal Nick Willard said, “The task force continues to help our state,
county and local task force partners throughout New Hampshire by seeking
out and arresting fugitives that think they can avoid arrest by moving
across the state or across the country.” Willard continued, “Mr. Graham
did not think anyone would find him in Lebanon, NH, but the task force
proved him wrong today.”

Additionally, this afternoon the U.S.
Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force arrested Joseph Gordan, 61,
whose last known address was in Fort Myers, Florida. Gordan was wanted a
warrant issued out of Lee County, Florida alleging lewd or lascivious
molestation of a child between the ages of 12 and 16. The U.S. Marshal’s
Fugitive Task Force in Florida requested the assistance of the NH Joint
Fugitive Task Force to locate and arrest Gordan. Information was
developed in New Hampshire indicating that Gordan was possibly in the
Milford, New Hampshire area today. After a short period of surveillance,
Gordan was observed in Milford Square, where he was arrested without
incident by the task force. Mr. Gordan was transported to the Milford
(NH) Police Department, where he was charged as fugitive from justice
based on the outstanding Florida warrant. Gordan will be held at the
Hillsborough County Jail pending his arraignment and eventual return to
Florida to face these allegations.

These extensive investigations
were conducted with the assistance of several partner agencies of the
U.S. Marshal’s – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force including, the Belknap,
Rockingham and Strafford County Sheriff’s Office, the Lebanon, Milford
and Greenfield Police Departments, along with deputy U.S. Marshals.

Since the inception of the U.S. Marshals – New Hampshire Joint
Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over
8,218 arrests (Updated as of 12/16/2020). These arrests have ranged in
seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation
and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally
the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out
with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive
task forces, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of
offices in foreign countries.
