The "C.W.," used by undercover cops as the name of their fake marketing company actually stood for  Central Warrants, the unit that handled the bust.

The two-week sting, handled by undercover sheriff's officers, targeted wanted for violent felonies, child support deadbeats and other offenders, sheriff's officials said in a news release.

The undercover cops send their bogus offers to the last known address of the fugitives in an effort to lure them into the operation, officials said. The fugitives were nabbed when they arrived at a warehouse to get their free prizes.

Police agencies across the country have used similar schemes, including free gift giveaways, to snare wanted criminals.
