Tazewell, Co.--You know the old saying "home for the holidays." Well deputies in Tazewell County certainly do. They cleverly used those words to track down seventy wanted fugitives in seven days.

"Some tried to play it off like they didn't know what we were talking about, they know," says Lt. Jonathan Hankins with the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office.

The warrant sweep started on December 21. Although deputies focused the sweep in Tazewell County, suspects were also picked up in Indiana and Tennessee. Most were wanted on probation violations and failure to appear in court. Some of the warrants had been on file for more than two years.

"When you have been wanted for a couple of years, you know it. If you do have a warrant, turn yourself in. It's going to look better on you and it helps us out. The paper is not going anywhere, its going to have to be served," says Lt. Jonathan Hankins with the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office.

Thanks to the warrant sweep, another suspect featured on our All Points Bulletin report is behind bars. Jeffery Cutlip, 48, of North Tazewell was wanted for a probation violation stemming from a grand larceny conviction.
