ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Our camera was rolling as Lee County deputies arrested one of our most wanted.

He's one of several fugitives now in jail after our CrimeStoppers Street Sweep as officers continue to follow up on tips to find others.

Dozens of calls poured in during our live newscasts earlier Monday.

Several of the 21 fugitives we featured are now behind bars at the Dougherty County Jail including two who were turned in by their mother.

Our crew was on Muckalee Creek Road, as Lee County Sheriff's Deputies captured Most Wanted Fugitive #15: Clifford Quattlebaum. Whose face you can clearly see as he turns to the camera. Quattlebaum was wanted for theft by taking by Dougherty County Police.

“I think it went well, we received dozens of tips and we've arrested at least one individual," said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick, Dougherty County Police.

Our newsroom phones were ringing off the hook with dozens of tips, one mother saw her two daughters: Quanteshia Ousley and Khadigah Shealey on street sweep. She made sure they turned themselves in tonight at the Dougherty County Sheriff's office, both were wanted for battery by DCP.

“It gives people the opportunity to aid us in getting criminals off the streets, especially the ones who we've been looking for a while," said Capt. Michael Persley, APD.

We learned shortly after our special newscast began that fugitive Number 10.

Whitney McDowell was already in the Dougherty County Jail. She was wanted in Lee County for burglary. Also Fugitive 21, John Ragsdale, wanted by APD was already in the Sumter County Jail and although street sweep has ended officials said their work is not done.

“We'll be following up on this information throughout the next couple of days and weeks as long as we're getting information we will follow up on it,” said Chad Kirkpatrick.

You can still give tips and earn a reward. If you recognize any of the fugitives on our most wanted list  call 436-TIPS.
