Massachusetts State Police arrest fugitive from New Hampshire
Massachusetts State Police Media Release – 11092015 – State Police Arrest NH Fugitive in Boston
Massachusetts State Police tonight located and apprehended KEVIN PAUL, 36, a fugitive from New Hampshire who violated his parole after serving prison time for being an accomplice in the murder of a police officer.
Massachusetts State Troopers found PAUL in Boston tonight. PAUL was wanted in New Hampshire on firearms, armed career criminal, and parole violation charges. PAUL had been granted parole earlier this year in New Hampshire after serving time for his role as an accomplice in the 1997 murder of an Epsom, N.H., police officer.
At 7:45 pm tonight troopers from the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and MSP’s Troop H Community Action Team located PAUL at Albany Street at Melnea Cass Boulevard in Boston.
The arrest was the culmination of a continued search of the Boston area for the suspect. MSP’s fugitive unit developed intelligence that PAUL and a woman he was with were staying at a Boston hotel. Massachusetts Troopers set up surveillance on the hotel today and watched as PAUL left on foot to run an errand. Troopers converged on him and took him into custody.
PAUL is believed to be involved in a burglary ring in N.H. that has stolen and traded firearms.
He will be arraigned on the fugitive charges tomorrow in the Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court.
According to published reports in New Hampshire media, PAUL was present as his friend Gordon Perry shot and killed Epsom police Officer Jeremy Charron in August 1997. Perry and PAUL then stole a pickup truck, and PAUL shot at police during a chase.
Any further questions about PAUL’s conviction in New Hampshire should be directed to authorities in that state.
