CONCORD, NH – Another tip, another fugitive caught.
On Wednesday, the New Hampshire Fugitive Joint Task Force along with Claremont Police and others were able to find and stop Thomas Arbuckle, 39, who was presented in late September after being wanted for two reckless driving with a deadly weapon as well as driving after an accident, resisting arrest and being charged with theft of property. Arbuckle, according to Jeffrey White, a deputy marshal, ran away from the Claremont Police Department and nearly hit two officers in the process.

After being presented on September 29, the task force received several tips indicating locations in New Hampshire and Vermont. Fortunately, the most recent advice has been revealed – it pointed to an apartment on Princeton Street in Claremont.
“After surveying this area, an individual resembling Arbuckle was seen staring outside the door of the residence,” White said.
Members of the task force entered the residence, cleaned it up, and called a K-9 unit. During a search, Arbuckle was found hiding in a closet and arrested. He was taken to Claremont Police Headquarters for treatment and was detained.
“We are fortunate to have such strong partnerships with law enforcement throughout New Hampshire and beyond,” said US Field Marshal Nick Willard. “As long as we have fugitives, the US Marshals and their partners will find you. Surrender is always the best option.
Members of the task force who worked on the case included Claremont Police, soldiers from the New Hampshire State Police and members of the Rockingham and Strafford County Sheriff’s Departments.
