U.S. Marshals task force arrests 67 during Big Island operation

A three day sweep of the Big Island by the U.S. Marshals Hawaii Fugitive Task Force resulted in the arrests of 67 wanted fugitives for a variety of crimes, according to officials.

91 federal and state warrants were cleared during the operation, which happened between August 27 and August 29 and involved Deputy U.S. Marshals, Hawaii County Police Officers, and Hawaii State Sheriffs. Those arrested were wanted for crimes including drug and sex offenses, robbery, and probation violations.

Among those arrested during the operation were 25 year-old Joseph Narzisi from Kailua-Kona, who was wanted for three criminal contempt warrants, and 38-year-old Patrick Enos, who was charged with theft of credit card and unauthorized possession of confidential personal information.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the three-day mission "represents the commitment of law enforcement to reduce violent crime through a multiagency approach."
