Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Division Introduces Monday And Thursday Weekly Fugitive

Monday, March 5, 2018

In an effort to promote the apprehension of potentially dangerous and wanted fugitives, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Division is now promoting a Monday and Thursday Fugitive.

Each Monday and Thursday morning, a new fugitive will be posted to the HCSO Facebook page in order to locate and apprehend fugitives who have been identified as having a high risk of endangering the public. The designation of these individuals will be made through analysis of criminal charges and intelligence.

The Monday and Thursday fugitives will complement the HCSO Top 12 Most Wanted already in existence.

Although available information pertaining to the ongoing search for these individuals can be limited, especially when they are wanted in connection with an ongoing investigation, Fugitive detectives are trying to utilize all avenues available to help apprehend these wanted individuals.

A link to the HCSO Top 12 Most Wanted can be found at http://www.hcsheriff.gov/most_wanted/most_wanted.php

Citizens may visit the HCSO website 24 hours a day and offer a confidential tip as to the whereabouts of any known or wanted fugitives by visiting the online TIP Portal at
