[ARCHIVED] Joint law enforcement operation, “Holiday Harvest”, leads to the arrest of 10 wanted subjects

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. 

The efforts of the Norfolk Police Department and the U.S. Marshals were supported by eight additional law enforcement agencies: The Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Hampton Police Department, Newport News Police Department, Virginia Beach Police Department, Portsmouth Police Department, Williamsburg Police Department, and Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office.

“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.” 

The operation was named Operation Holiday Harvest and took place November 4, 2020 through November 6, 2020 across the Hampton Roads area and resulted with the following individuals being arrested for outstanding violent felony warrants:
