'Fugitive of the Week' found hiding in Manchester attic
CONCORD — A man who was recently named the state's "Fugitive of the Week" was found hiding in an attic Wednesday.
The U.S. Marshals Service said 25-year-old Steven Bussiere had been wanted on two outstanding warrants, one stemming from a parole violation from a previous robbery conviction, and the other from the Goffstown Police Department, alleging that Bussiere had committed the crime of aggravated felonious sexual assault in April 2017.
As part of the U.S. Marshals investigation, Bussiere had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on May 17th, which aired on TV and radio and ran in local digital and print publications.
The U.S. Marshals Service said they received numerous tips regarding Bussiere's possible whereabouts, but on Wednesday the tips they received were very specific. The Marshals, along with Manchester police, responded to an address in the 400 block of Dubuque Street.
Arriving officers conducted a search and determined that Bussiere was hiding in the attic of the residence. He refused to come out, but once officers opened the attic hatch, he quickly surrendered.
Bussiere was processed on his outstanding warrants at the Manchester Police Department and also charged with resisting arrest. He is being held without bail until his arraignment scheduled for Thursday.
U.S. Marshal David L. Cargill, Jr. thanked the Manchester Police Department for their help in the arrest.
“Without their assistance, this arrest would not have been possible,” Cargill said.
