Operation AWOL Lands 24 Behind Bars

Two dozen people wanted for probation violations are now back behind bars, thanks to Operation AWOL.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the two day sweep in Onslow County has netted 24 arrests. Those targeted were on probation for a variety of offenses, including drug possession and distribution, assault by pointing a gun and breaking & entering.

The feds say one person, who owed $24,000 in child support payments, had been on the run for four years.

The Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force was assisted by the North Carolina Division of Community Corrections, Onslow County Sheriff's Office and Jacksonville police in making the apprehensions.
