What's one way to get wanted suspects to turn themselves in? Deny them the right to drive. Since it teamed up with the state's Motor Vehicle Administration on Sept. 4, the Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office has served warrants on 335 people wanted on criminal charges. Through the partnership, the Sheriff's Office electronically sends the MVA all of the warrants deputies have failed to serve after 31 days and at least one attempt. As soon as the MVA receives the information, it sends a letter to the wanted person, giving him or her 15 days to satisfy the warrant.

Anne Arundel County Sheriff Ronald S. Bateman says he has a plan for an innovative crime tool that plays on criminals' greed by making them turn themselves in before they can collect tax refunds. At Bateman's urging, the General Assembly signed off on a bill —awaiting Gov. Martin O'Malley's signature — that will allow the state to withhold refunds for people with outstanding arrest warrants in the county. Bateman says he hasn't seen such a program anywhere else. "I came up with the idea because I know greed is a close first or second to the root of all crimes," Bateman said.

Four defendants accused of running an illegal "scareware" business that supposedly stole more than $100 million from duped computer users narrowly avoided arrest warrants yesterday through a series of late-day legal filings in Baltimore's U.S. District Court and an agreement with the Federal Trade Commission. Last week, Judge Richard D. Bennett promised to file arrest warrants if the defendants, who were sued by the FTC earlier this month and failed to appear at a Friday hearing, did not explain why they shouldn't be held in contempt of court for ignoring earlier orders.

As part of an effort to shrink the backlog of unserved warrants, Anne Arundel County sheriff's deputies arrested 11 people and served 16 warrants over the weekend during a sweep of Glen Burnie. The backlog stood at 11,234 at the end of June, down nearly 800 from the start of the year. Sheriff Ronald S. Bateman said he is picking away at old warrants, some of which are more than two decades old, and recently worked out plans to erase about 400 warrants because the people sought are dead.
