OPERATION PAWS (Proactive Warrant Service) LANDS 43 BEHIND BARS

Multi-Agency Effort Removes 43 Fugitives From City Streets Including One Suspect On The Lamb for 18 YearsOn Friday, May 2, 2008, members of the Boston Police Youth Violence Strike Force and the Boston Police Fugitive & Apprehension Team, in collaboration with the Massachusetts State Police, US Marshall’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, initiated Operation PAWS. The operation, a proactive warrant sweep, enabled officers to effect 43 arrests. The goal of Operation PAWS is to send a clear message to individuals involved in gang-related activities in neighborhoods throughout our city. By locating and arresting such individuals on outstanding warrants, the department also seeks to reduce gang violence and augment the level of intelligence necessary to prevent future gang-related hostilities. Of the 43 arrests made, the arrest of Domingo Martinez, 39, of Boston, is especially note-worthy. Martinez, who was arrested in Roslindale, escaped from the Suffolk County House of Corrections some 18 years ago. A partial list of other arrestees is listed below. GONZALEZ, Felix M.
