NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – The Norfolk Police and the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force (CARFTF) teamed up to conduct a three-day joint operation that led to the arrest of ten wanted fugitives and the seizure of five firearms.

“Several violent offenders were taken out of our communities last week,” said Police Chief Larry D. Boone. “This was all due to the passion our local and federal law enforcement officers have for justice and safe neighborhoods. I couldn’t be prouder of their hard work and look forward to future operations knowing the positive impact this will have not only in Norfolk, but the Hampton Roads area.”
