PHOENIX (AP) - State and federal law enforcement agents have arrested 231 people as part of a fugitive roundup in Maricopa and Pinal counties.
The weeklong "Operation Justice V" effort focused on those with outstanding felony warrants. About half of the warrants that were served this week involved drug-related offenses.
Authorities also arrested a man accused of arson and another of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old child.
The U.S. Marshals Service says the operation involved more than 150 agents from 30 departments throughout the two counties, including the Chandler and Surprise police departments.
