BALTIMORE — Governor Larry Hogan said that hundreds of Baltimore City's most violent offenders have been arrested thanks to a recent law enforcement initiative.
Operation Seven Sentries was conducted over the past month and focused on finding violent repeat offenders who have evaded prison.
"Make no mistake about it -- we will find you, we will arrest you and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law," Hogan said.
Hogan said successful results from the Joint Law Enforcement Violent Crime Initiative are just the beginning.
The Seven Sentries Operation included nearly 500 federal, state and local law enforcement officers and focused on reducing crime by getting criminals with open warrants off the streets of Baltimore City.
The operation, conducted from Jan. 16 to Feb. 15., zeroed in on wanted individuals who were known gang members, sex offenders who failed to register, felons with violent criminal records and individuals who have warrants related to the sale or possession of drugs.
