Officials say that Wednesday around noon in Claremont, members of the US Marshals Task Force arrested this week’s “Fugitive of the Week”, 46-year old Gerald “Jay” Swanson of Manchester, NH. He was being sought for a Federal Supervised Release Warrant from a conviction and sentence in 2006 for cocaine sales.
Swanson was known to reside in Manchester but clues from an investigation led authorities to a residence in Claremont where he was with a family member.
Both the Claremont Police Department and the New Hampshire State Police assisted in the investigation and arrest and Swanson was transported to Concord to the US District Court to stand for the outstanding arrest warrant. Other entities helped with the arrest, including the Strafford & Rockingham County Sheriff’s Offices and Immigration & Customs Enforcement.
“Fugitive of the Week” was created to help involve the public in tracking down wanted criminals and bringing them to justice.
