Concord,
NH
– The U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force is
extremely happy to announce the arrest of another “Fugitive of the Week”
in Cedar Key, Florida.

Marshall James Dimick, 31 years-of-age,
was last known to be in the upper valley are of New Hampshire when he
became a fugitive. Dimick was wanted on an arrest warrant issued on
March 30, 2021, by the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH. This warrant
alleged the offenses of possession with intent to distribute controlled
substances, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and
possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

As
part of this investigation, Mr. Dimick had been featured as the
“Fugitive of the Week” on May 12, 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.

After Mr. Dimickn had been featured as the “Fugitive
of the Week,” several tips were received pointing to locations along the
New Hampshire and Vermont border. Unfortunately, Dimick fled this area
prior to be located. It wasn’t until recently that new tips were
received pointing to a relative’s home in Cedar Key, Florida. This
information was sent to our counterparts in the U.S. Marshals Office in
Gainesville, FL. Based on the information from the received tips,
members of the U.S. Marshal’s Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force went
to Cedar Key, FL this morning, where Mr. Dimick was located and arrested
without incident. Dimick was transported to the Levy County Jail, where
he will be held as a US Marshal’s prisoner pending his initial court
appearance at the U.S. District Court in Gainesville, FL pending his
return to New Hampshire to face these very serious federal charges.

U.S. Marshal, Nick Willard said, “Once again, we see that the
‘Fugitive of the Week’ program has an extensive reach.” Willard
continued, “Fugitives can flee across state lines, or across the country
and we still receive tips that lead to the arrest of these fugitives
that truly believe that they can run away from their legal issues.”

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.
