Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Law enforcement agencies in three counties continue to follow up on tips that WALB viewers called in during our CrimeSTOPPERS Street Sweep special.

Lee County Sheriff's deputies arrested a fugitive from Dougherty County Wednesday morning while conducting warrant checks.

Willie Passmore was not on the 25 most wanted list, but he was wanted for probation violations from a theft by taking case.

Lee County deputies transferred Passmore to Dougherty County and continued to knock on doors, following leads provided from WALB News 10 viewers.

"There were several of the fugitives that were out, and we're trying to follow up on those leads so we can get them off the streets and get them locked up," said Major Keith Houston with Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Four of the 25 most wanted fugitives have been found.
