SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – The Sullivan County Sheriff’s office is launching a new effort to catch the county’s most wanted and they want you to get involved.
It’s an online game show they call “BUSTED BINGO”. It’s hosted by Sheriff Wayne Anderson. Every week he picks a number with a wanted person on the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Busted Bingo card.
Each week the sheriff’s office will focus on a different person.
You can watch it every week on the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page or YouTube Channel.
“We’ve got probably about 7,500 active warrants, arrest warrants. And we’ve got over 17,000 warrants that have to be served,” Sheriff Anderson said.
Sheriff Anderson said the game was created as a way to grab the public’s attention.
“When you get people involved and you get the public involved, because some of these people might have a job somewhere that we don’t know about and they say well I work with that guy or I work with that lady, whatever, and so they call and turn them in,” he said.
The sheriff’s office says if you can help find those featured in Busted Bingo, just give them a call.
This week the sheriff’s office is focusing on Carrie Winters. The 42-year-old is wanted for theft of property and failure to appear. She reportedly lives in Bristol, TN.
“Girl, you might as cowgirl up, come on in, kiss your boyfriend goodbye, give your mama a big hug — ’cause if you don’t we’re gonna come and get you and bring you to jail,” said Sheriff Anderson.
Sheriff Anderson said she was located a few hours after the episode aired.
