The U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force in Manchester arrested a man on Monday who recently fled a drug-treatment facility in Dublin.

Christopher Mann, 34, was wanted on a federal supervised release violation as leaving the facility was a violation of his probation, according to Brandon R. Wilson, a deputy U.S. Marshal for the district of New Hampshire.

Mann was described on the US Marshals’ website as “armed and dangerous – known to abuse drugs” prior to his arrest.

Mann was arrested by the task force after he featured as a Fugitive of the Week, according to a press release sent out by the U.S. Department of Justice office.

The force received a number of tips after he was named Fugitive of the Week, which indicated that Mann had been seen in a black Saturn and was with a woman, who was known by authorities to reside on South Beech Street in Manchester. Members of the task force arrived at the Manchester residence and located Mann in the black Saturn speaking to the woman. He was arrested at the scene.

“You could say that the majority of people go to where they have a connection,” said Wilson in an interview before Mann was arrested. “They are limited on where they can go and who they can trust.”

The arrest was a combined effort of multiple agencies that are members of the task force including Belknap, Hillsborough, the Strafford County Sheriff’s Offices, and the deputy U.S. Marshals, according to the release. 

Mann was transported to the U.S. District Court in Concord after authorities made the arrest, where he is being held pending an appearance in court. 

Mann was sentenced in July 2006 to serve 144 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release on charges of interfering with commerce by threat or violence and use of a firearm in a crime of violence after robbing a Concord pizza shop with an unregistered short-barreled shotgun the year prior, according to court records. 

It was also recommended at the time that Mann participate in the Bureau of Prisons drug education and treatment program. 

Court records show that Mann had  previously been convicted of assault by a prisoner on Sept. 3, 2003.
