The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces the arrest of former Fugitive of the Week, Felix Junito Perez. Perez, 39, was wanted on a parole violation, for sales of controlled drugs.
Perez was featured as the Department’s Fugitive of the Week on June 14, 2023. On June 22, 2023, through collateral information and in cooperation with Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and Nashua Police Department, Felix Perez was located and taken into custody without issue.
Perez initially attempted to conceal his identity, however, information provided by the Department of Corrections, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Nashua Police Department, allowed for officers to positively identify him and take him into custody. Perez is currently in the custody of the Hillsborough County Department of Corrections and will be held on the parole warrant pending his revocation hearing before the New Hampshire Adult Parole Board.
The Department of Corrections would like to thank the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, and the Nashua Police Department who helped coordinate this effort and resolve it expeditiously.
The Fugitive of the Week program was launched by the Department of Corrections in March of this year to encourage public assistance in locating individuals who have absconded from supervision. Each Wednesday, the Department shares information on a specific fugitive through various communications platforms, and with law enforcement through the New Hampshire Information and Analysis Center.
