Fall River police announce arrests, add new faces to ‘Most Wanted’ list

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — Spreading the word, on social media and elsewhere, has proven effective for Fall River’s police department looking to make arrests in the city’s “top 10 most wanted” suspects list.

The department announced this week five new suspects they’re searching for, as well as the arrest of eight they’d put out the call for on March 16. They’re hoping the public can help find any of the suspects at large.

Anyone with information about the individuals remaining at large is asked to contact Fall River Police Special Operations at (508) 325-2801, or the department’s main line at (508) 676-8511. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by calling (508) 672-TIPS.
