The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office in Tampa, Fla., conducted a round-up of wanted individuals. In total, there were six fugitives arrested and booked into Hillsborough County jail.
Of the fugitives sought by HCSO Warrant Unit detectives, six were nabbed and taken into custody.
The charges among these wanted/arrested fugitives ranged from Aggravated Child Molestation to Cocaine Possession and Grand Theft.
One of the fugitives was wanted by law enforcement authorities in Georgia. Typically, when a fugitive is arrested in "another jurisdiction" other than where the warrant was issued, the arresting agency --in this case HCSO-- confirms the validity (actively being sought or not) via the issuing justice authority.
Once the warrant is confirmed as "active" and an order to "place a hold on the arrested party" is received, HCSO places a "hold" on that particular person until such time transportation arrangements can be made by the issuing agency to assume custody of the fugitive. No bond can be granted with the exception of the Georgia authority extending such allowance.
The outstanding Georgia warrant will be subsequently addressed in a Georgia justice venue once the arrested party is transported back to that jurisdiction.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Warrant Unit has among its contingent a group of deputies whose responsibility it is to run down leads, attempt contact with fugitives at known addresses, and to generate leads and intelligence as to where fugitives may be residing and/or working.
With today's fugitive arrests, especially the one regarding a suspect wanted in relation to Aggravated Child Molestation, the streets of Hillsborough County are safer thanks to the efforts of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Warrant Unit.
