Operation Repeat Offender

MILWAUKEE – Kevin A. Carr, United States Marshal for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced the completion of a four day sweep that targeted absconders in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Sheboygan Counties. ‘Operation Repeat Offender’ resulted in twenty seven arrests.

The operation focused on parole and probation violators that violated supervision and became fugitives. Offenders with lengthy criminal histories were prioritized. While some individuals with outstanding federal arrest warrants were also included, the focus was on individuals wanted by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections.  Investigators began working leads in April of this year in preparation for the sweep that began on May 23rd.

The member agencies of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force include the Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department, Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, Kenosha Police Department, Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Wisconsin Department of Corrections, and the Sheboygan Police Department.

 

The operation culminated over the last several days with the arrests of twenty seven individuals. The

U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force will continue to investigate the whereabouts of several absconders

that were targeted, but not apprehended during the sweep. Marshal Carr said that “The U.S. Marshals

Service is appreciative of the cooperation of the agencies involved in this operation to remove offenders from our streets who were granted the privilege of release from custody only to not comply with the conditions of their release.
