CLAREMONT — A man wanted by United States Marshals and recently listed as a Fugitive of the Week, was arrested Friday in an apartment on Sullivan Street.
James Perry, 30, was wanted for parole violations stemming from his original armed robbery with a gun conviction. He was considered armed and dangerous by law enforcement during his brief stint as a fugitive, according to a statement from the U.S. Marshals.
After being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” last month, the Marshals Fugitive Task Force received multiple tips pointing investigators to several different areas in Claremont, according to the statement.
Members of the task force conducted surveillance on these locations over a two-week period. It was not until Friday morning that multiple tips came in to the task force alerting investigators that Perry was in an apartment on Sullivan Street.
Claremont police officers and officers from New Hampshire Probation and Parole went to the apartment and arrested Perry without incident, according to the statement.
Perry is being held at the Sullivan County Jail in Unity pending his return to custody at the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord.
