Concord, NH - “Fugitive of the Week,” Dorbor Nyonee, 27, was arrested during the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Mr. Nyonee was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Federal court in Concord, NH for supervised release violations. Dorbor was on supervised release as part of his sentence for a 2011 conviction for counterfeiting.
Since the arrest warrant was issued for Nyonee on September 1st, he had fled NH and was arrested in December for driving under the influence in Minnesota, while using another name. Unfortunately, Nyonee was released on bail, prior to his true name being realized.
Nyonee had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on both September 16, 2015 and again on January 20, 2016. Several tips came in that indicated that Nyonee had recently returned to Manchester. This information was aggressively being developed by both the Manchester Police Department and the U.S. Marshals. During the early morning hours Sunday, information was developed by the Manchester Police Department that Nyonee was at a bar in the 300 block of Valley Street. Officers responded to this location and attempted to locate Nyonee. Nyonee was observed inside of the bar and he immediately fled out the rear door. Nyonee was quickly intercepted, but continued to resist arrest until a taser was used to assist in gaining control of him.
Nyonee was brought to the Hillsborough County Jail, where he is currently being held pending his hearing today on resisting arrest charges at Manchester District Court. Once these charges are resolved, Nyonee will be transferred to the custody of the U.S. Marshals on his outstanding federal supervised release violation warrant.
The “Fugitive of the Week” program is 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.
