Does anyone respond to Anne Arundel County's Most Wanted, the local cable television show that invites viewers to turn in people?


Yes. To date, callers have turned in 734 people whose photos -- often mug shots -- have graced the show, now in its 13th year.

The show is a five-minute spot for the county's Comcast customers. It can be seen 55 minutes after the hour during breaks of Headline News. The "wanteds" have ranged from murder suspects to people who have failed to pay child support.

The show is a cooperative effort of the county Sheriff's Office, the Maryland State Police, and the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County police departments. It is taped once a month in the conference area of the Sheriff's Office. The show offers no reward money. But viewers keep turning people in, says Sheriff George F. Johnson IV.
