Hillsborough sheriff launches Web tool to put wanted criminals behind bars

TAMPA — Interactive cell blocks open with virtual sounds of rusty doors clanging. Mug shots zoom onto the screen, showing frowning fugitives wanted for various transgressions.

It's the newest Web tool the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is using to find wanted criminals, dubbed the Sheriff's Cell Block Shakedown (click here to see the site).

Four cell blocks include deadbeat dads, DUI offenders, career criminals and the county's top 10 most wanted.

Deputies encourage people to explore the site and report anyone they recognize to the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay, toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
