A New Hampshire fugitive who was considered armed and dangerous was arrested Friday.

Members of the U.S. Marshals–N.H. Joint Fugitive Task Force and the Maine Violent Offenders Task Force arrested Nicholas Emond early Friday morning in Somersworth. Emond, 27, with last known addresses in both Maine and New Hampshire, was sought on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by the U.S. District Court in Portland, Maine for supervised release violations stemming from an original conviction and sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

As part of the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive investigation, Emond was aired as the "Fugitive of the Week" on Patch, WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader and The Nashua Telegraph. Tips provided by the public were instrumental in locating him. Information provided by tipsters indicated that Emond was living in an apartment on Winter Street in Somersworth. That information was further developed by the U.S. Marshals Friday morning, which ultimately led to his arrest. Emond did not respond to knocks at the apartment door and entry was forced by law enforcement. He was quickly located and arrested without further incident.

According to Deadspin, before his arrest Emond commented on a story about himself posted on the WMUR-TV Facebook page. In his comments, posted Thursday afternoon, Emond, using the screen name "Sin Demon," said he was neither "armed and dangerous" nor "the dangerous criminal they've made me out to be.

"So what if i am the devil m (sic) not a threat I've never harmed a single person that is all that should matter," he continued.

Emond was transported to the U.S. District Courthouse in Portland, Maine, where he will be processed and charged on his outstanding warrant.

Numerous members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Forces participated in this investigation and arrest, including members from; the Eliot and Biddeford Maine police departments, Maine State Police, Somersworth Police, the Rockingham County Sheriffs Office and deputy U.S. Marshals.

Horns on his head, under his lip and a tattoo of a beard on his neck. Who would hire a knucklehead that looks like this???

Gotta be tough to evade the police with very distinguishing marks on your face.

The holidays and dinner table chats must have been interesting at that house.

He must have been passed out, and the tattoo artist extremely drunk when those were done.

Tattoo "artist"would be a bit of a stretch, but I know what you mean.
Marshall Sam McCloud November 16, 2013 at 11:24 PM
Kind of looks dangerous but I don't see what this "dangerous" felon has done to a person that warranted a search using so many resources to find him. What exactly was it (other then buying a gun) that the guy did?

Felons are not allowed to own a Gun. It is a Felony for them even to possess one

Poor guy, and he's trying so hard to appear innocent.

Looks like he fell asleep in a tatoo parlor and got permanently punked
Andy Robichaud November 20, 2013 at 05:14 PM
Anyone know why he is a felon? You can be a felon without having committed a violent crime. Tax evasion, fraud, defacing federal property, selling drugs... I couldn't find any stories that reference his felony arrest.

Looks like a complete ninkinpoop!
