Florida Fugitives Caught with Bait

Cops in Fort Lauderdale took advantage of the not so clever criminals in the State by mailing letters to them informing them they were receiving stimulus checks. The suspects were asked to call a hotline and set up an appointment to pick up a check from an auditorium where “South Florida Stimulus Coalition” banners hung. When the fugitives arrived, they were identified and about 75 were arrested on offenses ranging from fraud to grand theft to attempted murder. Police spokesman Sgt. Frank Sousa said the two day sting was dubbed “Operation Show Me The Money.”
