shamboOn Friday February 10, 2017 the Canaan Police Department apprehended Rickie L. Shambo, age 50, of Center Road in Unity, New Hampshire.

Shambo plead guilty to a Felony Forgery charge in the Sullivan County Superior Court on March 20, 2015. Shambo later appealed his case to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. In May 2016 the Supreme Court denied Shambo’s appeal and he was ordered to begin serving his prison sentence. Shambo failed to appear as ordered and has been on the run ever since.

Canaan Police Officers received information that Shambo would be in the Canaan area and apprehended him during a motor vehicle stop on Prospect Hill Road. The Sullivan County Sherriff’s Department transported Shambo to the New Hampshire State Prison to begin serving his sentence.

The New Hampshire State Police assisted the Canaan Police Department during this apprehension.
