Department for processing on his outstanding arrest warrant and then
brought to the Merrimack County Jail for holding pending his initial

as the “Fugitive of the Week” was definitely the motivation needed for
Mr. Brooks.” Willard continued, “We are grateful that Mr. Brooks chose
to do the right thing by surrendering and now he can move through the
criminal justice process to get these cases resolved.” Since the
inception of the U.S. Marshals – New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force
in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 8,542 arrests (Updated
