Case outline

The U.S. Marshals - New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force is requesting public assistance in its efforts to locate and arrest Belknap County fugitive, Paul Tasker. Tasker failed to appear for sentencing in a 2016 case where he threatened the public by chambering a rifle and firing in the direction of a mother and her three kids. A convicted felon for a similar charge, Tasker is prohibited from possessing firearms. Tasker also has a 2005 sale of cocaine warrant out of Brevard County, FL, but extradition limits don’t reach NH. Tasker has a very violent criminal history highlighted by unpredictable and irrational behavior. He is known to reside in the Laconia area. The public and law enforcement should use caution if encountering Tasker, as he is considered armed and dangerous.

If you see someone who resembles Tasker, please contact the local U.S. Marshals Service District Office at (603) 225-1632, or 1-877-WANTED-2, submit a WEB-TIP, or TEXT NHTIP with any information to TIP411.

NOTICE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT: Before arrest, verify warrant through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). If subject is arrested or whereabouts known, contact the nearest U.S. Marshals Service office, American Embassy/Consulate, call the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102, or submit a tip using U.S. Marshals Service Tips.
