Memphis Fugitive Operation Nets 47 Arrests

Posted By on Thu, Feb 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM

It’s the end of the line for 19-year-old Demarious Tuggle, a southeast Memphis man who’s been on the lamb since shooting someone in the leg and stomach late last month.

Tuggle and 46 others were arrested in the past 24 hours. About 175 Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies spent the night and day saturating county neighborhoods in search of people wanted on outstanding warrants.

Eight of 47 arrests were for felony crimes. Yesterday evening the officers combed the North Shelby County area, where they netted 23 criminals. In southeast Shelby County last night and early this morning, 13 people were arrested. Eleven were taken into custody from Cordova this afternoon.

“We want to send a clear message to those wanted on charges: Turn yourselves in or expect a visit by deputies,” said Shelby County Sheriff Mark Lutrell. - Bianca Phillips
