The Cook County Sheriff nabbed 100 wanted fugitives in an interesting hoax that lured them to a warehouse where Sheriff's deputies were waiting. Details of the operation will be revealed in a press conference scheduled for today but it appears as if the Sheriff's office set up a fake company called "C.W. Marketing." C.W. Marketing stands for Central Warrants, the office in charge of handling the operation. Officers mailed bogus offers for free electronics devices to the last known addresses of wanted fugitives. When the wanted fugitives showed up at the warehouse to claim their free items, they were arrested.
This operation is similar to other operations carried out throughout the United States that have been used to nab wanted fugitives.
