Federal marshals and police arrested a homeless man in Lawrence, Mass., on Wednesday in connection with a string of crimes in both states including armed robberies in Windham, Londonderry and Derry.

Daryl Gurley, 24, was spotted walking to a bakery in downtown Lawrence Wednesday afternoon when he was arrested without incident.

At the time of his arrest, police said Gurley had with him $2,000 in cash and narcotics that officials said they believed to be fentanyl.

“The dedicated investigators of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force worked seamlessly with agencies throughout New Hampshire and Massachusetts to locate and arrest a very dangerous fugitive.” said Marshal David L. Cargill Jr.

For the past two weeks, Gurley was featured as the U.S. Marshal’s “Fugitive of the Week.”

Last week, police said Gurley was identified from surveillance video as the man who robbed the Santander Bank in Windham on Feb. 12.

He was also wanted for a Dec. 23 bank robbery in Derry.

In both cases, police said he claimed to have a handgun at the time of the robberies but never showed it.

Gurley had two outstanding warrants in New Hampshire for probation violations stemming from prior convictions for larceny and receiving stolen property.

Gurley also had two outstanding warrants in Mass­achusetts for theft and narcotics charges.

Gurley will be arraigned today in Lawrence District Court on a variety of charges, officials said.

The U.S. Marshal’s office said the arrest was a cooperative effort with the N.H. joint fugitive task force from the Hillsborough, Rockingham, Belknap and Strafford County Sheriff’s offices; the Federal Protective Service; the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and police departments from Greenfield, Londonderry, Windham and Derry, and Lawrence, Mass.
