Lowell fugitive caught after 2 years on run

After more than two years on the run, Aris N. Karamousianis, 26, of Lowell, was arrested in Pelham, N.H. Sunday on charges of being a fugitive from justice and resisting arrest, authorities said.

In December 2009, Karamousianis was arraigned on several firearm charges, including conspiracy to traffic firearms, and never returned to court, and was considered armed and dangerous, Pelham police said.

Pelham police were told Karamousianis was at a Greek Easter gathering at 137 Marsh Road, but the homeowner said he was not there. Police searched the home, found Karamousianis, and he ran away through the backyard. He was arrested on on the edge of the property near a wooded area, officials said.


Karamousianis is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in 10th Circuit Court in Salem, N. H.
