(PRWEB) May 18, 2015
Responding to media reports that emerged over this weekend, Justice Network, the free over-the-air multicast television network, is proud to confirm the capture of a most wanted fugitive. Captured in Spokane on Friday night, the fugitive spent 13 years on the run from law enforcement. A Justice Network viewer saw him in the hourly “Most Wanted Fugitive” Spots that air on the network and called in a tip leading to the successful capture.
"Thanks to this Justice Network viewer tip, one more fugitive is behind bars,” said John Walsh, on-air host / spokesperson for Justice Network. “As more and more viewers come forward with tips, we can add more victories like this in keeping the streets safer all over the country for both wanted fugitives and missing children."
"Once again, the Justice Network is fulfilling its mission," said Justice Network CEO Steve Schiffman. “Our public service initiatives featured every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 day a year are indeed making a meaningful difference. We are keeping communities safe alongside our lineup of entertaining crime and mystery programming."
