Reference: Arrest of registered sex offender

Date of Release: December 11th, 2006

On Sunday, December 10th, 2006 at approximately 11:45 AM, officers from the Portsmouth Police Department conducted a motor vehicle stop where an individual was subsequently identified as a wanted person. He was identified as:

Roberto Estrada Alfaro
Date of birth 09/01/64
126 Cedar Street
Haverhill, Massachusetts

It was determined that there were two active arrest warrants for court defaults for Mr. Alfaro from the Haverhill and Lowell, Massachusetts District Courts. Neither arrest warrant was extraditable. However, during the traffic stop, Mr. Alfaro gave the Portsmouth Police a false name. He was arrested for the misdemeanor charge of Unsworn Falsification, and brought to the Portsmouth Police Department for processing.

Further investigation revealed that Mr. Alfaro is a registered sex offender in Massachusetts, and that up until this week he had been residing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and had not registered in New Hampshire as required by law.

He was subsequently charged with one felony count of Registration of Sex Offenders, Duty to Report.

Mr. Alfaro was held overnight on cash bail and arraigned this morning in Portsmouth District Court. He is currently being held on $5,000 cash bail.

Anyone with any further information about Mr. Alfaro is asked to call Detective Kristyn Bernier at 436-2511, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 431-1199 or 1-207-439-1199.
