WORCESTER CO., Md. - Crime never takes a holiday.  But the Worcester County State's Attorney's Office believes now is the perfect time to bring criminals to justice.  In a special 5 part series, WMDT is working with the State's Attorney to catch their 10 most wanted suspects.

In part 2 of this exclusive report Beau Oglesby, Worcester County's State's Attorney, says their "Home For The Holidays" campaign worked in the past, and it will work again.  "It is a prime opportunity to find individuals," explains Oglesby, "and place them under arrest if they have outstanding warrants."

In 2006, Oglesby says Wicomico County conducted a similar operation, staking out areas where criminals might be over the holidays visiting family or friends.  Although Worcester County may not have the funding for a full scale operation like that, they're hoping vigilant citizens can help spot suspects, leading to arrests.  "We have a lot of warrants," stresses Oglesby, "thousands of warrants that are outstanding for individuals who live outside the jurisdiction and by that I mean out of state. It's not reasonable for us to expect to go out and lay our hands on a lot of people who live out of state at this point - but we can certainly make an effort to find people who live in Worcester County or around Worcester County."
