Law enforcement agencies team up for WSLS 10 "Most Wanted" phone bank

Posted: Updated:
On Thursday, U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement agencies joined forces for the "WSLS 10 Most Wanted " phone bank. Dozens of mug-shots of people wanted for misdemeanor or felony crimes were posted on the WSLS.com website and shown on television.

In some cases, suspects face charges related to assaults, sex crimes and other dangerous offenses. Federal agents said getting information to the public can be a key factor in bringing criminals to justice. Tips can help police identify a suspect's last known address, close friend, relatives or a possible place of employment. When a solid lead comes to the Task Force Hotline, the information is relayed to field agents who respond to the tip. The more detailed information the public provides, the more criminals police can place behind bars.
