Fugitives Invited to Surrender

Posted on Wed, Sep 19, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Running from the law? From Wednesday through Saturday, the local division of the United States Marshals Service is offering fugitives a chance to turn themselves in exchange for possibly lighter penalties.

Fugitive Safe Surrender will be held at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church at 2231 S. Parkway East from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Prosecutors will be on site to make deals with fugitives facing outstanding misdemeanor or felony warrants. It's the Marshals Services' way of cleaning up old cases, and they’re promising "no scams, no gimmicks."

After the church closes its doors on Saturday, the Marshals will begin intensive fugitive sweeps with no favorable consideration given for those captured. In other words, Safe Surrender is your best bet for freedom.
