'Fugitive of the Week” Arrested Christmas Eve Morning by U.S. Marshals in Franklin, NH

Concord, NH - “Fugitive of the Week,” Angela Kulacz, 37, was arrested early this morning by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Franklin, New Hampshire.

Kulacz had been wanted on an outstanding Belknap County arrest warrant since August 31, 2015. This arrest warrant alleges that Kulacz was in violation of her conditions of probation as set forth by a Belknap County Superior Court Judge. Ms. Kulacz was on probation as a result of a conviction for being an accomplice to armed robbery. After being featured as the “Fugitive of the Week,” several tips came in over the past 3 weeks. Today, these tips led to an apartment on South Main Street in Franklin, NH. It was at this apartment that Kulacz was located and arrested without incident. Angela was then transported to the Belknap County Jail to be processed and held pending her initial court appearance.

This arrest was made by several members of the fugitive task force, including members from the Strafford, Rockingham, & Belknap County Sheriff’s Offices, the Franklin Police Department, NH State Police and deputy U.S. Marshals.

Kulacz had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on November 25th, which was aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, The Manchester Ink Link and prominently featured on the internet. This program has been a remarkably successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,216 arrests (Updated as of 12/24/2015). These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
