Arizona agents arrest 231 as part of fugitive roundup

PHOENIX -

State and federal law enforcement agents have arrested 231 people as part of a fugitive roundup in Maricopa and Pinal counties.

The weeklong "Operation Justice V" effort focused on those with outstanding felony warrants. About half of the warrants that were served this week involved drug-related offenses.

At least three suspects were arrested while FOX 10 cameras were rolling.  One suspect was wanted for theft and U.S. Marshals say he has a criminal history of stealing.

"He wasn't home at the time.. he arrived on the scene as we were knocking on the door and he was taken into custody as well," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Kevin Keefe.  "We basically go around on these roundups and work with our joint partners in state and local partnerships and pick up as many people as possible."

Authorities also arrested a man accused of arson and another of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old child.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the operation involved more than 150 agents from 30 departments throughout the two counties, including the Chandler and Surprise police departments.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes. Speaking to about 50 homeowners, officials and community leaders in a storm-battered Staten Island neighborhood, the mayor said the city is aiming to start rebuilding an ambitious 500 homes through its federally funded Build-It-Back program.
