Father-son fugitive duo captured in Maine apartment for jumping bail
CONCORD — Father and son fugitives from Laconia were captured Thursday in Brewer, Maine, where they were staying in an apartment, according to the U.S. Marshal’s Office.
Edward Janak, 38, and his son Brandon, 18, were both wanted by the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office for bail jumping.
Officials said the father fled New Hampshire to avoid a jail sentence stemming from a 2007 assault, while the son fled to avoid being sentenced after being convicted for possessing narcotics.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the Maine Violent Offender Task Force, including members from the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office, deputy U.S. Marshals and Brewer police department, converged on the Brewer apartment where Edward Janak had been residing. He was arrested without incident.
Brandon Janak, who was recently featured as the local New Hampshire Fugitive of the Week by the U.S. Marshal Service, was found hiding in a rear hallway and arrested.
Both were taken to the Penobscot County (Maine) jail and are being detained pending fugitive from justice hearings.
Investigators said additional charges are possible and they continue to look into who helped the Janaks elude law enforcement.
