Task Force Arrests 101 Wanted Individuals

A multi-agency task force set up by the U.S. Marshal Service has been busy all this week trying to round up wanted men and women in Pitt County.

Dubbed "operation all hands on deck," the task force presented the results Friday on the steps of the Pitt County Courthouse.

Of the 271 warrants they began with Monday, 138 of those were served, with 101 people being arrested. Sheriff Neil Elks says it's a testament to good team work.

Warrants included high profile cases, as well as simple assaults, domestic incidents, probation violations, and failure to appear in court.

      Pitt County is in the US so the US Marshals service has jurisdiction also. Assuming you pay tax, you pay it to them also. Hard for 1 agency to arrest 100 people in a couple days. Get a life....

      It's people like you who give police a bad name. Be grateful they did what they did. They should do this more often. Last I checked, the US Marshall's job is to track down fugitives with warrants. It also helps the agencies as a whole. Who knows maybe the police arresting one of these fugitives prevented yourself from becoming another victim...ever take that into account.

        From what I observe police are like other servants we pay for, they give thier self a bad rap. Ever watch the news? By the way that's only the ones that can't get a higher officer to cover it up.

    Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate what they have done. What I don't understand is what more than 101 wanted individuals were doing running around in the first place, and this is in one county.Although I will say the officers act like they are trying to look so bad. LOL

    Great work by all. Thanks for all you do to keep us safe!

      So you would prefer all these people just be left alone and be left alone to never have to face any consequences of their actions? So what if they are already out. There is no listing of who was arrested for what, so perhaps they even moved some people off the streets who were wanted for rape, burglary or other serious offenses. Even if those types don't stay in jail, at least there currently undeserving state of freedom has been interrupted. If they are out at least that means they did have to pay a bond. I'm sure the bondsman appreciate the business. Depending on the charge, some of them may have even had to pay their fines off.
