Connects Against Crime: U.S. Marshals Seeing Results Due to Most Wanted Program

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:16 PM CDT

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Every Wednesday night we bring you fugitives on the run.
It's a task we take on with the United States Marshals Service.


"When we're investigating or trying to track down a person we only have a selected number of doors, people to come in contact with," says Deputy Marshal Phil Hartung.


Since the start of the program roughly one year ago, 52 fugitives have been aired. 


"That gets exposed to thousands of people, thousands of houses which can help us out," Hartung said.


So far 41 of them have been captured.


"It only takes that one tip to give us a good lead on the whereabouts of that fugitive," says Hartung. 


Once the fugitive is captured more than likely they will stand before a judge at the federal courthouse.
The court house is home base for the U.S. Marshals Office for Northern Iowa.
