LEBANON - A Rochester woman featured as this week's Fugitive of the Week was arrested this morning in Lebanon.

Jamie Stockford, 37, was wanted on an outstanding Strafford County arrest warrant for failing to appear on heroin and cocaine charges earlier this month.

The arrest was made by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force after it received information from the Rochester Police Department indicating that Stockford was in hiding with her mother in Lebanon.

This morning, investigators went to an address on Lower Middle Road where they could see Stockford inside the house. Stockford's mother delayed law enforcement at the door by initially denying her presence. The task force then entered the house and located and arrested Stockford without any further incident.

Stockford was turned over to the custody of the Maine State Police to be charged as a fugitive from justice on the outstanding arrest warrant. She is currently being held at the York County Jail pending her return to New Hampshire.

The Strafford County Sheriff's Office is a full-time participant on the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and had requested assistance of the task force with this investigation. As part of the U.S. Marshals fugitive investigation, Stockford was just featured as this week's "Fugitive of the Week" in The Lebanon Voice as well as many other publications and TV stations in New Hampshire.

The "Fugitive of the Week" has been a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.

Cooperating agencies involved in today's arrest included the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Strafford County Sheriff's Office, Greenfield and Rochester Police Departments
