    U.S. Marshals arrested a New Hampshire fugitive in Lawrence, Massachusetts, they announced Monday.

    Thirty-five-year-old Alexis Rodriguez of Manchester was wanted by Exeter Police for burglary, by Hooksett Police for theft of a motor vehicle, by Manchester Police for criminal threatening and violation of bail conditions, by state police for reckless conduct and by the state's probation department for violating parole.

    Additionally, Rodriguez was wanted for questioning in several southeastern New Hampshire commercial burglaries.

    Authorities have been looking for Rodriguez since July. Police believed that he was hiding in the Lawrence area.

    Amy Meattey of Exeter, who officials call an associate of Rodriguez, was arrested Friday in Methuen for shoplifting and outstanding warrants for theft and crack cocaine possession. Officials believed Rodriguez may attend her arraignment and arrested him when he did.

    Rodriguez waived extradition and was taken to the Rockingham County Department of Corrections. He is awaiting arraignment.

    Meatty was also arraigned as a fugitive, but is being held on local charges in Massachusetts while her extradition is pending.
