TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The marshal’s office in Tucson is planning to follow up a recent fugitive sweep with at least one more before the end of the year.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/1G0u1m9) 72 fugitives were arrested in a five-day operation targeting outstanding warrants for violent crimes and drug offenses in three southern Arizona counties.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Nate Alexander says the sweep started with 31 arrests in Pima County, followed by 20 in Cochise County and another 21 in Graham County.

Operation Southern Star IV involved 18 of the state’s law enforcement agencies.

Alexander said these types of sweeps occur several times each year.
