MANCHESTER — A suspect wanted for murder in New York City was apprehended Wednesday afternoon in Manchester, marking the end of a two-month investigation led by Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Jeremy Amadiz was taken into custody as a result of tireless police work by lead investigator, Deputy Shane Beauchemin, and his team, according to Sheriff Chris Connelly.

Beauchemin’s pursuit of leads culminated in critical information about Amadiz’s whereabouts.

Armed with a search warrant based on Beauchemin’s findings, the Manchester Police Department SWAT Team executed the warrant at a residence located at 309 Cedar Street.

Amadiz was discovered during the operation and is now being held as a fugitive from justice.

He is scheduled for arraignment at the 9th Circuit- District Division Manchester this morning.

In the course of a subsequent search of the apartment, deputies seized a loaded firearm and a quantity of drugs.

Additional charges against Amadiz are expected to be filed.

The operation also led to the arrest of Kelly Johns and Benny Amadiz on Wednesday.

Johns was apprehended on a warrant for Armed Robbery and First Degree Assault from the Manchester Police Department.

Benny Amadiz faced arrest based on two warrants from the Hillsborough County Superior Court for failing to appear on charges of Possession of a Controlled Drug and Breach of Bail.

Sheriff Connelly recognized the collaborative efforts of the Manchester Police Department, NH Department of Corrections Probation/Parole, United States Marshals Service, and the US Drug Enforcement Administration in this fugitive apprehension operation.

Connelly praised the interagency cooperation, noting that partnerships at the local, county, state, and federal levels in New Hampshire are essential for conducting seamless operations that remove dangerous individuals from the community.
