264 Fugitives Arrested in Baltimore

They arrested 25 people wanted for homicide or attempted homicide, 74 people wanted for assault and 27 people wanted for drug crimes. Authorities say they recovered 140 grams of heroin, 106 grams of cocaine and $50,000 in cash in the three weeks.

Gov. Larry Hogan and U.S. Marshal for Maryland Johnny Hughes announced Wednesday the arrests of 264 people as part of a three-week crackdown on violent fugitives in Baltimore.

Hogan also took the moment to demand lawmakers in Annapolis pass his bills to toughen minimum sentences for violent offenders and to track judges’ sentencing decisions. Less than two weeks remain before the General Assembly session ends.

The governor was in federal court in Baltimore for the announcement of results from Operation Seven Sentinels, a push to capture the city’s most dangerous fugitives. More than two dozen law enforcement agencies from city police to the FBI joined in, the Baltimore Sun reports.
