CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- U.S. Marshals say a New Hampshire man featured on television as the "Fugitive of the Week" has been arrested in Maine.

Marshals say tips that came in after the segment aired on WMUR-TV last week led them to 36-year-old Craig Wiggins, who was holed up in a house in Eliot, Maine.

Marshals say they forced in the door of the house Wednesday morning and took Wiggins into custody without incident. Eliot police charged 27-year-old Diana Foley of Eliot with harboring a fugitive.

Wiggins is wanted by sheriffs in Rockingham and Strafford counties for failing to surrender to serve a prison sentence for theft by unauthorized taking, violation of probation and being a habitual offender.

It was not immediately known whether either defendant has a lawyer.
