Motor vehicle stop in Nashua leads to arrest of man wanted in Florida on 23 counts of credit card fraud


NASHUA - A morning motor vehicle stop led police to a man wanted as a fugitive from justice in Florida where he faces 23 felony counts for alleged credit card fraud.

State police say they saw the man run a red light before getting on the the F.E. Everett Turnpike around 10:30 a.m. Thursday and pulled him over.

Police took Jacob Howard, 28, currently living in Nashua, into custody after checking his license and discovering he had an active arrest warrant. He was charged with being a fugitive from justice and giving a false date of birth.

Florida police were contacted and advised they'd need to request Howard's extradition. Howard is being held at Valley Street jail in Manchester pending his arraignment scheduled for Friday morning in Nashua Circuit Court.
