'Fugitive of the Week' found hiding in Goffstown home

GOFFSTOWN - A man featured as this week's Fugitive of the Week was arrested Thursday at a Patten Hill Road home where officials say he was trying to hide in a bedroom.

Omar Rivera, 30, no fixed address, was wanted for a probation violation on an underlying charge of possession of narcotic drugs.

On Thursday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office received several tips about Rivera's whereabouts after he was featured as the "Fugitive of the Week" by the U.S Marshal's Services.

As a result, deputies, Goffstown police and members of the state Department of Corrections, Division of Probation and Parole, went to the Pattee Hill Road residence and arrested him.

Rivera is being detained on $10,000 cash bail at Valley Street jail, pending a hearing in Hillsborough County Superior Court, Northern Division, which issued the arrest warrant.
