A team of law-enforcement officers led by U.S. Marshals arrested one of Iowa’s “Ten Most Wanted” Thursday in Des Moines. Deputy Michael Powell says local police who requested the aid of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force had a long list of charges against the 23-year-old man. Lopez Webster, captured in Des Moines, was wanted on charges including firearms, assault and domestic abuse. Powell says the U-S Marshalls are the oldest law-enforcement agency in the country. They’re celebrating the marshals’ 215th anniversary this year, and they may be best known for capturing violent fugitives, which they do in Iowa by working with local and sheriff’s officials. Powell says other duties of the marshalls include protecting the federal courts, transporting federal prisoners, and various other special operations. The list includes the most violent fugitives and those who’ve won the most notoriety, local and statewide or even throughout a region. It also includes those they’ve simply had trouble finding. Some have been on wanted lists for two, three years or longer. With two or three thousand US Marshalls across the nation, Powell says the federal law-enforcement agency brings a unique style of aid to local cops. If a local law-enforcement agency’s looking for someone they think is in another state, the marshall can send the case to their counterparts there and “get them on the trail.” You can see their most-wanted lists, local agencies and more by surfing to www.usmarshals.gov
