LACONIA — Fugitive sex offender Arthur "AJ" Liesner, 31, was arrested Thursday without incident at the home of a relative on Gilford Avenue in Laconia by deputies from the Belknap County Sheriff's Department.
Liesner was wanted on a warrant issued by Belknap County Superior Court for his failure to appear the previous day, Wendesday, April 27, for a hearing. Liesner was indicted by a grand jury in December of 2015 for duty to report (a new phone number), duty to inform (change of address) and four counts of registration of online identifiers, all requirements of his status as a Tier III Sexual Offender residing in New Hampshire.
Acting on information obtained through the investigation of the Belknap County Sheriff's Department along with the assistance of the Boscawen Police Department, it was determined that Liesner could be found at the Gilford Avenue address where Belknap County Sheriff's Deputies apprehended him.
Liesner was transported to the Belknap County Jail where he will be held without bail pending a hearing at Belknap County Superior Court.
