MANCHESTER, N.H. – On Sunday, Manchester Police arrested a man wanted since July by the U.S. Marshals Service.

At approximately 1 p.m., officers observed 43-year-old Troy Woodruff exit a residence on Spruce Street and ordered him to stop so they could place him under arrest. Instead, Woodruff tried to conceal himself between nearby vehicles and then fled over numerous fences to evade the officers.

Eventually, officers were able to take Woodruff into custody without further incident. Later, officers searched the area where Woodruff tried to hide, finding a large double-edged knife. They also found an undisclosed quantity of methamphetamine on his person.

According to the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire, Woodruff has an extensive history of drug use and violence and has also been known to use the aliases of “Troy Arnold” and “X STREETS,” with previous arrests in 2008, 2010 and 2018.

Woodruff was charged with alleged possession of a controlled drug, resisting arrest and possession of a dangerous weapon by a felon. He will appear at Hillsborough County Superior Court – North at a future date.

Anyone arrested is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law.
