Police in Fargo, ND, figured that last Sunday would be the best bet to catch some criminals at home.
THE DICKINSON PRESS reports that authorities made over 40 arrests during a Super Bowl Sunday sweep code named “Operation Touchdown”.
As many naughty North Dakotans sat down to watch the Big Game, “From 2:20 p.m. to about 9:45 p.m., Fargo police, Cass County deputies, U.S. marshals, and parole and probation officers fanned out around Fargo to serve about 300 outstanding warrants.”
The operation, two months in the making, was the most successful sting by Fargo cops since a fake pre-Ozzy Osbourne concert party nabbed 30 ne’er-do-wells last October.
Too bad Ozzy wasn’t there in person to read them their rights. That would have been fun to listen to - just like when he sang the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field.
