1 min read

HOPKINTON — After months of eluding law enforcement, 40-year-old fugitive Otto Keller was found and arrested Thursday in a residence in Hopkinton, culminating an extensive investigation by the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office.

Keller had been evading capture since a warrant sweep on Oct. 6, during which he successfully avoided apprehension.

Subsequent efforts to locate him were unfruitful until tips led investigators to a Hopkinton address.

Accumulated evidence allowed the Sheriff’s Office to secure a search warrant for the property.

With the perimeter secured by the Hopkinton Police Department, deputies and officers made announcements for individuals to exit the residence.

Two females came out, one of whom had an outstanding arrest warrant and was detained.

Confirmation from the females that Keller was inside led to the breach of the home by law enforcement, including Hillsboro Police K-9 “Voight” and his handler.

Voight located Keller hiding in an upstairs closet.

The arrest was executed safely and efficiently, thanks to the collaboration between the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office, Hopkinton Police, Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office, and Hillsboro Police Sgt. Hodgen with K-9 Voight.
